The main goal of this project is to support, nurture and improve the lives of Orphans and children that have been subjected to poverty and abuse by providing them with food, shelter and education The environment provides physical and emotional support, spiritual nurturing and lots of tender loving care. We encourage and give hope to each and every child and we assist them to know that we loves them. With the right help and committed support we help these children turn their lives around. The project believe that every child deserves the best start in life and a chance to fulfill their potential we therefore support them, stand up for them and bring out the best in each and every child.
