WHO WE ARE

We have a purpose: we want to connect resources (financial, material, human) to allow everyone to have an opportunity to fully develop and become able to solve problems in a creative way.

We know that many people cannot reach their full potential because they lack opportunity. We also believe that everyone can learn and teach when working together. For this reason, we want to connect people, ideas, technologies, experiences and skills so everyone can grow together!

And it is during this journey that the communities that we serve become the protagonists of their own development process. We believe that this is the only path to make it happen in a sustainable way, every individual being actively impacted.

WE ARE CHANGING

We are changing the way we interact with the benefited communities to allow our projects to be true catalysers of empowerment and development.

In the meantime, we still need to cover more objective costs as food, teacher’s salaries and material resources. However, we want to help the community to create a plan where they can satisfy these and other necessities in a creative and sustainable way, taking into account the local potential and participation.

This means that in a few years, our current projects will no longer exist as they do now. 

Do you know the expression: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish and you feed him for life.”? That is what we want to do! Support, connect and direct the community’s development in a collective way, within its own vision of what is important and necessary.

But until then, we need to ensure that the communities we attend to have at least the bare minimum they need to live confortably and that this change is gradual. Would you like to participate? Donate now and become a development catalyser as well!

Our name means prosperity in swahili.

Our logo is an elephant that we call Rafiki, a word that means friend in swahili.

Besides representing prosperity, the elephant is also a symbol of solidarity, friendship and companionship, just like our friends!

EDUCATION

Artboard 11-07-06

Through education it is possible to develop the potential and capacities of an individual so he or she can have the necessary tools to identify the needs and opportunities of their own community and become transformative citizens. Education and knowledge are the basis for true human development.

Through community empowerment, promoted from human development, the training of local workforce and the direct engagement of the community in the process of development, it is possible to form active, free and independent citizens that can generate change and find sustainable and long-lasting solutions for local issues.

EMPOWERMENT

SUSTAINABILITY

Artboard 11-07-06

Sustainability comes from conscious investment in productive and self-sustaining community activities. It takes into consideration the local capacities, allowing socioeconomic development and the generation of income and employment that will ensure food, social and economic security of the community in the long term. The inclusive economy lowers the vulnerability of a population and, therefore, promotes the end of its poverty cycle.

Development is when every individual has their freedom guaranteed in all social, political and economic aspects: worthy life, education, nutrition, health, employment, political participation, security, freedom of speech. It is much more than simply economic growth and income generation, it is the real holistic, participative, egalitarian and sustainable development of a whole community.
