The Experience

We believe… in providing a hope and a future. One of the most creative but logical and time-proven ways to provide food and healthy diet for vulnerable children in Africa is the cow, chicken, and garden projects. The idea is to give a source of food while teaching children life-sustaining ethics rather than short-term relief. We're ideally situated in rural sites perfect for agricultural endeavors.

I had the best time ever in the foundation. Andrew and his family were loving and caring and I really felt home. Helping those kids really changed my life forever and I’ll never forget them! Every person on this world should experience something like this
