Our mission is to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa by developing and supporting community-driven initiatives and connecting them to the world.

Our projects include children's homes, after-school programs, and community centers.  We work with these organizations to improve their organizational structure, operations, and fundraising in order to help them carry out their missions more successfully and sustainably.   We also work with the South African Department of Social Development and various local and international charities and businesses to create meaningful partnerships that align these different resources to maximize impact.

Our projects are based on careful assessments of the needs and opportunities of the individual, organization, or community.  Our diverse projects are all connected through the underlying principal of empowerment— offering a platform of resources and tools to help beneficiaries accomplish their own goals.  We prioritize cultural sensitivity and our beneficiaries play an integral role in designing and implementing our projects.  Learn more
