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. We spend quality time with the communities that we work with, in order to truly know them and work with them to derive an effective solution to the challenges they face.
The streams that we focus on are namely: Education, Health and Well-being.read more
At the core of our focus is education, healthcare, well-being, and infrastructural support by providing training, safe guarding of children, skills nurturing and development through sports and recreational activities right the way through to building and refurbishing entire centers and schools.
Our vision is nothing less than helping the people we work with realise their full potential through development, growth, and productivity by implementing sustainable programs that will enable them to become self- sufficient so that we are able to step back.
iHeartAfrica is driven by the social mission to improve the livelihoods of men, women, and children of Africa and the diaspora. Founded in 2017 by Chaka Clarke, Natasha, Makengo, Ranes Formosa & Theodore Menelik-Mfuni with the shared understanding of the importance of holistic sustainable development.
As a team, we have a vast collective experience working in a variety of ways in successful projects all over the world including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Ghana and Jamaica. We actively work with orphanages, medical centers, community leaders and authorities, schools and voluntary organisations to help establish safe, clean, empowering future-proofed solutions that benefit the local areas.
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 organisations and families to feel empowered or to better themselves.
