Sponsor a family
“No other investment has such a lasting effect as the education of children (youth). Children who go to school are healthier, more self-assured and can more easily assume a profession.” - Per Engebak, former UNICEF Regional Director
Due to poverty, needy families are often unable to afford education for their children and require them to take on jobs to supplement the family's income.
Many children’s future are disrupted when they are taken out of the school system. We believe that no child or youth should be denied of education due to poverty. We need all the help to ensure they are safe to continue education without any disruption.

Health Ambassador Programme
Through the Health Ambassador Programme , we want to bring about awareness of the importance of healthy habits that the villagers can adopt to improve their health. We want to empower the villagers to take ownership of their health and become health advocates for their communities.
Health ambassadors are chosen among the youth- they are trained to spread the message of healthy living and are equipped with first-aid and health knowledge to educate others in their village and attend to their fellow countrymen when help is needed.
