Empowerment For Education

We are fundraising for this project with our 2020 Christmas Appeal. To benefit from Big Give matchfunding between 1-8 December please DO NOT give on this page, but follow this link.

Christmas Appeal 2020

In Koshe, children start school late and drop out quickly. Instead of learning skills in the classroom, they go straight to work, in the fields, in the home, on the streets, earning what pennies they can.

Rukungiri Disability

The combination of poverty and disability is toxic. Add stigma and discrimination, and the mix is even more destructive.

Lent Appeal 2017

Change lives for Karenni families still suffering the effects of over fifty years of civil war being fought through their villages.

Houtberg Childcare Centre

Due to economic isolation and internal political instability, 72% of people in Zimbabwe live below the poverty line.

Zambia

Zambia has the fourth highest birth rate in the world and an extremely high HIV/AIDs burden. These factors combined with a high level of poverty – 60.5% of the population live below the poverty line – and a low level of education mean that life expectancy is low at 52 years old.

Karenni

Kayah State (formerly Karenni State) is the smallest, least accessible and poorest of the 14 ethnic states in Myanmar. For many years, government forces conducted a policy of ethnic cleansing against the Karenni and other minority people groups. Ceasefires signed in 2012, and nationwide in 2015, are potentially still fragile.

Home of Love

Of the 168.9 million people in Bangladesh, 31.5% live below poverty line. This is one of the world’s poorest, least developed nations.
