LEAVING A LEGACY
When the time comes to write or change your Will, making sure your family and friends are looked after should of course be your top priority. Once they’re taken care of, you might like to consider also giving some of the world’s most vulnerable children and young people the chance to make a better future for themselves. You could choose to make WeSeeHope a beneficiary of your Will.
In the communities we work with in Southern and Eastern Africa, blighted by extreme poverty, the majority of people don’t have Wills as we do. This means that when children and young people are bereaved, they usually aren’t protected by provisions made by their guardians. Orphaned and isolated children are often left with nowhere to live and no means to feed themselves, little chance to receive an education and no support to find solutions. WeSeeHope exists to support orphans and other vulnerable children living in extreme poverty in Southern and Eastern Africa. We work with local project partners to restore, protect, educate and equip these children sustainably. We see hope in them. We know that, given the opportunity, they have the potential to transform their own lives and create a better future for themselves, their communities and for Africa.
Whether or not you already have a Will, you will need to seek legal advice to make WeSeeHope a beneficiary. You may find our ‘Leaving a Legacy, Frequently Asked Questions’ document helpful.
