Areas Of Focus

Lighting up opportunities for children and Youths


We promote literacy by promoting access to quality education and conducive reading spaces to children living in impoverished communities.

Adolescent and Youths

70% of surging Africa population is under the ages 24 years, making Africa to be the continent with the youngest population in the world.
However, adolescent and youths growing in informal settlements face a lot of challenges which prevents them from realizing their potential.

Health and Nutrition

With high poverty cases in Africa, nutrition for children below the ages of 5 has continued to be a great challenge.
