Changing Communities

Our Team dreams big. We work in communities in 14 countries across Africa and Eastern Europe. By working to empower communities and help children, we give roots to societies to grow, develop and flourish.

How can my school help?

School involvement is very important to us as we truly believe that by engaging children and students, developing their awareness and giving them opportunities to act, they will grow to be compassionate and giving. From pre-school to secondary school, there are lots of ways for your class to get involved.

Confirming Hope

For children doing their confirmation, this program helps students explore how they can make a difference both locally and globally.
