Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our mission is to bring confidence and self-sustainability to orphaned and vulnerable children of East Africa by teaching modern skills, giving the opportunity of education, and enlightening through the word of God.

Objectives

1. Provide outreach programs on various topics affecting children and youth. These topics include character building, family conflict resolution, behavior change, discipleship, HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention programs presented in weekly visits to various projects. These programs are carried out through group counseling, drama and music presentations, panel discussions, and preaching.

2. Empower the youth in need through providing sponsorship for formal education and vocational training.

3. Provide compassion projects such as breakfast feeding programs in slum schools, assistance in relocation of released children from the juvenile homes back to their villages, and building communities through construction of new homes, livestock shelters, and well digging in villages.

Our Values

Christ-Centered

We are committed to whole-heartedly following Christ's call and his example of living life and loving others. As we share the gospel and disciple those we work with, our prayer is that they too will come to know Christ more and live out the same commitment to Christ's call on their life.

Team Building

We seek to respect all members of our team, whether a short term volunteer or long term staff member. We work with people from many different backgrounds and strive to make everyone feel welcome and a part of the team through openness and inclusion. Any thought of superiority can destroy the team dynamic. We seek to use diversity as a strength, making the best use of a wide range of talents and viewpoints.

Collaboration and Partnership

By working and partnering with others in East Africa as well as churches, schools, clubs, and people from countries all over the world, we can achieve our goals.

Innovation and Entrepreneurship

We always must be looking for opportunities and new solutions to current problems. Just because one option does not work does not mean the problem is impossible to solve.

Excellence and Professionalism

We aim to live and work by world-class standards in all that we do.

Integrity

We hold integrity extremely high in our commitment to the efficient use of resources. We offer full accountability and transparency to our partners, supporters, and the public.
