We are a small but successful grassroots charity working in Africa in Mgongeni an urban slum area of Mombasa, Kenya.  (Where we are) We are making a difference with our school for 225 poor children and our programme to support women and youth. We aim to help the people out of poverty by giving them the confidence, education and skills to solve their own problems. There have been vast improvements in the past seven years but with your help we can do much more.
