We are a small but successful UK grassroots charity based in the Deepings and working in Africa in Mgongeni an urban slum area of Mombasa, Kenya. We are making a difference with our school providing quality education for 275 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 nine years but with your help we can do much more both now and in the future.
