Our Mission

Our mission is to distribute the future to our children and create the next generation of volunteers.

"The future is already here - it's just not evenly distributed." – William Gibson


Our Values

We value our children. We value our volunteers. We value an equitable world in which all human beings live with dignity. We take full responsibility for fixing our own challenges - our children, our responsibility.

Work Hard

Why Choose Us

We are Made in Zambia. But seriously. We are working on fixing our own challenges. Between us and our partners, there's pretty much very little we can't fix.

Our Work

We love what we do. We have a great team that continues to deliver life-changing services and activities to children mostly, but also the wider community. Our kids are amazing! Some of them learnt what we do through their friends, and then went back and told their parents they also wanted to be at our learning centre! You have to love that. Self-motivated, wanting to learn and then showing up Monday to Friday to learn and play with their friends. Hearing what their parents and guardians have told us about the work we have done, and continue to do, is very rewarding. Read some of these testimonials below on this page.

The learning programme has lessened my burden of sending my children to school. I'm the breadwinner in our family. I sell vegetables as a business. I have seven children. Four of my own and three orphaned nieces. Taking care of this number of children has been a challenge. Before your free learning programme came to our community, only the first and second borns were able to go to school. All the others stayed at home and helped me sell vegetables.

Gangs have reduced among boys aged 12 and above who had dropped out of school due to not meeting the demands of government schools. Because these kids now spend time learning and doing other co-curricular activities. They rarely have time to loiter the streets, drinking alcohol and mocking passing girls as the girls head to school.

Mrs Zulu - Kitwe

I run a makeshift store next to my house. I don’t make much money. My son John stopped going to school because he was mocked about being old for his grade. So I am really thankful because your learning centre has placed him in the appropriate class without first looking at his age or height. It is also a blessing that my son now wears expensive school shoes. Shoes that I cannot afford to buy him from the money that I make. – Mr. Phiri
