lively minds

We are improving the quality of life for deprived children and their families in rural Ghana and Uganda through creative early years development programmes that are run by the communities themselves. Our work enlivens minds and empowers communities to use their own skills and resources to change their children's lives, and their own, for the better. This is real sustainability. This is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty.
