We help children and youths from less privileged backgrounds to break away from the poverty cycle. We want to develop young people who respect the law, value education and seek to become responsible persons.
We believe that people have the ability to help themselves and can successfully reach their goals despite their disadvantages.
We take a long-term view and focus on impacting young lives by providing them access to social, educational and community support programmes. We value inter-organisational collaboration & will steadily expand by building networks of individuals and organisations that can contribute towards our vision. We would therefore gladly work with others, as we believe that our target group will ultimately benefit when more members of the community take an active interest in their well-being.
We ensure quality social service by facilitating an organisational culture that rewards passion, innovation, on-going evaluation and the development of human resources.
