ABOUT THE CHARITY
Established in 2009, this NGO’s mission is to help lift overcome the social and environmental problems that deepen and perpetuate the cycle of poverty by providing education to under-priviledged children in Kroo Bay, George Brook and Lester Road. They provide many services in collaboration with the local community, including working with families, providing adult education and crisis management.
