Every child has the right to a good education, adequate and healthy nutrition and access to healthcare. All these are possible in a perfect world, but this is not the case in our world today. So many children – the number going into the millions, are forced to make do without the most basic of needs which is heart wrenching. There are children who go to sleep with an empty stomach, others are forced to provide casual labor in order to get some money to buy food while others have to live in abusive and violent environments.
It is for this reason that we were inspired to start a place that provides some form of safe haven for our children. A place where they can play in a safe environment, learn important life skills and have some decent food. Children are little angels on earth and it is our collective duty to keep them safe and provide them with all their basic needs.
Our belief is that if we empower our children and youth, then we will be building a healthier and stronger society for the future. This will help reduce crime, dependency, idleness and violence. Children are tomorrow’s future and we fail them at this stage, who knows who they are going to grow to be. Ideally, our children should have a better life than we did back when we were kids.
It’s not just a matter of providing children and young people with physical needs. Overall wellness and strengthening of their minds will stay with them all the days of their lives. If we all work together with the aim of empowering our children, then we will have done the greatest service to our children and our future. Giving back and lifting the less fortunate to the point they can now stand on their two feet is the true measure of humanity.
