Main aim of the charity

The main aim is to break the cycle of poverty in mukuru slum where I grew up in and also change the attitude of the young people towards education and life. My work involves mentoring young pupils from different schools, I invite young professions who made it in life despite initial background to come and share their life stories as away of motivating the young ones. We are geared towards breaking the cycle of poverty that’s normally experienced in slums through; • Social counseling • Career guidance • Mentorship and motivation talks in schools and during holidays • Raising awareness on the consequences of drugs and substance abuse & • Raising awareness on the consequences of engaging in teenage sex • Identifying and nurturing young talents
