Our organization focuses on child, youth rights and welfare plus the limitations which hinder their realization, that is to say: Child rights abuses, problems faced by HIV/Aids infected and affected persons, orphans and vulnerability cases among the communities, unemployment among the youth, poor nutrition and hygiene, poor methods of waste management and sanitation, flooding, environment degradation and global warming, lack of information on Human and Sexual reproductive health rights. Through volunteers' contributions, development and expansion of the existing fundraising efforts of the organization will be achieved. It aims at acquiring enough space for the orphanage and this space will have a school, playing ground and organization staff premises.
