Is to reduce the needless suffering and deaths of children living in poverty in remote rural African villages, with our main focus on 10 villages in poverty.
Is of a world where children born to families living in poverty in African villages do not die prematurely, have access to clean water, basic sanitation and are offered a chance for a better life through education.
One day, we hope African children do not needlessly die or suffer from preventable diseases that we in the wealthier Northern hemisphere no longer consider a threat to our children.
We want a connected educated community of donors that sees children in poverty as vibrant, energetic, worthy kids and not as a stereotypical poverty victims.
Our Approach & Methodology
We believe in living our organisational values through our behaviour. We sleep on friend’s sofas/spare rooms rather than staying in an expensive hotel when we travel for business. We live in the communities we support (Including the ones without electricity or running water) rather than arriving for an afternoon and then returning to a comfortable hotel in the capital.
We work from our homes in Europe and build our head office in West Africa, not in the capital but in one of the villages we support, and design it so when we move the building will become a health clinic or Junior High School. We try our hardest to build things that will last a very long time and we will not work with anyone we feel does not truly want to help themselves.
Using the best of the “low or no cost” web based technologies we bring donors and recipients closer together to generate better mutual transparency, understanding and therefore trust.
