WHAT WE DO
Focusing primarily on education, child rights and economic empowerment, we develop community-led programmes for vulnerable children in Southern and Eastern Africa.
Our aim is that children who are isolated, exploited or lacking the opportunity they deserve, have the skills to change their own futures. And that their families and communities are able to support them along the way.
WHERE WE WORK
We work across five countries – Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe – in areas where children are acutely impacted by:
Lack of opportunity
In low or no-income households, children often do not have access to basic necessities and education.
In communities where there are high rates of orphanhood, children are often suffering from emotional and social distress.
In areas where practices such as child labour, abandonment and early marriage are prominent, children are often unsafe.
Increasing access to early childhood education and care for isolated children.
Equipping communities to provide emotional support for vulnerable children.
Creating child protection structures in schools and communities.
Mentoring and teaching life skills to children and young people living on the streets.
Teaching young people business and entrepreneurial skills.
Economically empowering those who care for vulnerable children.
Together with Qlik.org, the corporate responsibility arm of leading data analytics company Qlik and long-term WeSeeHope partner, we have developed a two new cutting-edge dashboards.
The first – our Programmes dashboard – shows the current scale and reach of our seven programmes, including how many children, parents and guardians and community volunteers we are currently working with through each of them.
The second – our VIP dashboard – specifically analyses the economic and social data collected from every savings and loans group in our Village Investors Programme up until the moment they can operate independently of our support.
