Where We Work
Our Charity is based in the Cabo Delgado province, north of Pemba, one of the poorest parts of the poorest countries. Local statistics got us involved, we felt we had to do something.
Average life expectancy is 58 years
125 Mozambican children will die each day from malaria
Infant mortality runs at 5%
We work with 16 communities who have almost no other NGO help and a local GDP of under $60 per annum. The 24,000 strong local population suffered 20 years of war which robbed the country of its infrastructure. They are proud, happy people who don’t ask, want to work and stay local. They love their land – they just need help.
We think education is the best way out of poverty and are working hard to change the fact that only 20% of children will finish elementary school this year. *
