It only takes a moment to change a life forever

Doing the right thing TOGETHER by enhancing a world where people, especially children, living in poverty are able to take control of their future and actively shape it.

Our plan is to further strength our impact in those communities by reaching our vision: we wish to give an opportunity to as many African children and communities as possible through access to high-quality education, healthy food, safe playgrounds, aimed micro-credits, sport activities, and ecological literacy.

We want to provide high transparency and active communication to our donors for each selected and sponsored project and 100% of the sponsored funding will go to the projects – we don’t take any money for marketing, financial or any other administrative activity.
