For almost 25 years we were making progress against poverty.

But then it started to get worse again because of inflation, COVID, and wars.

The challenge in Africa is very big. Over 32 million kids are orphans. More than 18 million people are refugees.

With your support, we are trying to help as many kids as possible live fulfilling lives, surrounded by God's love.

You are Helping Children Rise Above Poverty

Poverty often mean trying to survive without everyday essentials like food, water or shelter.

In Africa, that’s the reality for almost half of the population.

Without their most basic needs accounted for, African children cannot begin to imagine a path out of poverty.

Your support creates lasting change for children and youth in Africa.
