Our motivation is to ensure that children in remote areas can enjoy their right to education. Co-existing with government and other agency education support programmes, the organisation provides tuition support; school wear such as uniforms, jerseys, socks, shoes and underwear; school supplies and other materials to prepare the beneficiary students for a positive learning experience.
The organisation aims to ensure all fees are fully paid and that the kids don’t feel different from others, therefore buys them school uniforms, some writing materials and basic necessities such as underwear although it is not always financially possible. Secondary to that the organisation also aims to nurture and mentor these kids and prepare them for the world at large. The organisation has taken upon itself to ensure it that it assist all the beneficiaries to access all possible opportunities that children of their age across the globe have access to. It believes for the kids to compete in this world, they need to be out there in the world and have an awareness of the world beyond their immediate surroundings.
Our mission is to promote education for all including the Girl Child & nurture future leaders by supporting disadvantaged children to access education which is a precursor to having better life outcomes, promote child health, community youth programmes, facilitate innovation and co- production programs that benefits children & immediate communities.
Our vision is a world in which every child accesses the right to survival, protection, participation in learning and development. We aspire to live in a society where every child accesses basic education and though that education, is empowered with knowledge, skills and competencies to make informed choices instead of living a life blighted by disadvantage.
