Next year will be our 15th birthday.
We will be celebrating – celebrating our volunteers, celebrating making the vision of a social enterprise that could help to change the world into a thriving reality and ultimately helping to change the lives of over 35,000 people for the better, forever.
As we look ahead to next year, our focus remains on keeping our charitable and social goals at the heart of everything we do.
At any one time we have over 100 projects helping to directly impact on the lives of people and wildlife across Africa, Asia and South America. Our projects focus on supporting people, protecting environments and caring for precious wildlife.
Here’s a snapshot of just some of the amazing projects we are currently working on and launching within the coming months.
Kenya: we are building and refurbishing classrooms to provide a better environment for learning, we are making desks to enable children to sit in less cramped conditions, we are constructing elephant deterrent fences to protect these amazing creatures from wandering into farmlands and causing damage to vitally needed crops, we are running healthcare and hospital outreach programmes to deliver medical care and support to thousands of families in need and inspiring a generation through the power of having sport in their life.
Tanzania: we are helping to construct houses for families in need of safe and secure accommodation, we are working with families who own small-holdings to enable them to become more self-sufficient and sustainable to secure their futures and we are working in a number of schools, improving infrastructures, repairing buildings and improving conditions to enable school students to thrive and support their learning.
Borneo: we are completing the build of a much needed kindergarten to support mothers wishing to return to work to support their families whilst ensuring their babies and young children are being cared for and given the best possible start in life. In addition we are constructing toilets in communities who do not have any access to sanitation and we are planting thousands of trees to help combat deforestation and protect this stunning environment.
Cambodia: we are helping to build and refurbish the houses of some of the poorest and most vulnerable within the communities in which we work, we are supporting and improving primary schools to enable more children to receive a good education and installing more toilets to communities who do not have access to ‘proper’ toilet facilities.
Ecuador: we are constructing water harvesting systems to enable families to collect water in tanks in areas where they do not have access to running water, we are replacing a much needed medical centre that was damaged in a flood, we are planting hundreds of trees to combat deforestation and working in a number of schools to help improve the conditions for teachers and students.
Peru: we are building a cultural house to enable local traders to make and sell their items to passing tourists – helping them to develop a sustainable business to support their families now and into the future, we are installing access to clean, running water into communities who do not have any access to water and improving the facilities at schools including refurbishment work and installing toilets into schools where they have limited or no access to proper sanitation for the children.
We believe everyone should have access to safe shelter, clean water, sanitation, the chance to learn and have a good education, to be able to work their way out of poverty and develop sustainable futures, whilst protecting the environments in which they live and the wildlife that relies on these environments for their survival.
