Message to the Community

Why a Youth Project?

True poverty reduction must start in the hearts and minds of the people who live it day-to-day. But to truly maintain long term poverty reduction we must reach youth. It is there that we will end the cycle of generational poverty, it is there that we must plant the idea that a life without poverty is truly achievable. We always tell youth that the future is theirs - what we are doing with a youth project is exactly that - we are giving them the training, the skills and the desire to change their future and that of their community.
