We are a small but formidable charity changing the way charity and volunteering is carried out in the UK and Kenya. Our priority is to engage with children and young people to create programmes and events that they want. We do so by employing a positive message, positive and encouraging approach and inspirational methods.
Our ultimate aim is to ‘enhance and enrich and, in some cases, create childhood experiences and opportunities’.
Our projects are grouped under various banners:
‘Just Read’ – building of libraries and helping local communities gain access to reading material and literacy teachers. Involving UK children in donating their unwanted and outgrown books.
