  • Mission statement

    Promote the improvement of living conditions for underprivileged children and their families in Mozambique
    THEORY OF CHANGE: We believe that access to education and nutrition, in a healthy and dignified environment, will help children and young people from Mozambique break the cycle of poverty.

    Our projects cover Education (pre-school, technical courses, uni grants, etc), Infrastructure (access to water & family huts) and Sustainability (income generating activities), centered on the underprivileged child, often an orphan, and their (remote) families.

    With a fully volunteer UK team, we are small, focused and offer a personalized donor relationship applying c. 95p per pound donated, on the children, on the ground.
