We have a passionate desire to help the people of Africa build a better and brighter future for generations to come. The communities we work within often lack access to education, health services, nutritious food or safe places to play. Without these basic necessities, it is difficult for individuals, voluntary organizations and families to feel empowered or to better themselves.
Our first completed major project on the continent took place at the Meteba Medical Centre in Nagba, Democratic Republic Of Congo. Situated in the more rural area of South Kinshasa and serves an immediate population of around 27,000 people. With the help of YOU the people, we raised £90,000. This enabled us to help keep the center open, improve the medical facilities as well as refurbish & modernize the building.
WE NEED YOUR HELP, TO HELP OTHERS
An international team including the Bob Marley Foundation, Chronixx, Team ODG, Luol Deng and iHeartAfrica. We worked together with the focus of raising the quality of educational provision. The mission is simple, and the blueprint is already laid-out, we’re going to raise 500,000 through the power of the global community to build and refurbish schools in the hearts of near-forgotten communities in both Jamaica and Ghana.
We recognise the importance of developing the untapped potential dormant in every child. We pride ourselves in understanding the unique needs of each child, as well as being able to see the bigger picture. This extends to being familiar with how the child ties into the fabric of their local community.
The additional money raised for the Meteba Medical Centre was used to help the Masika Centre, an orphanage and therapy centre for victims of sexual violence based in south Kivu. The staff are severely under-resourced, under-funded, and under supported. After seeing the conditions in which the community volunteers were dealing with we began entering discussions about what we can do to help.
