Mission, Vision & Values

Vision

At AfricaNguvu we really like that old saying: "give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day; teach him how to fish, and he will eat for the rest of his life".

In fact, "AfricaNguvu" means "power to Africa".  We believe that we learn together and we grow together. And that's exactly what we're trying to do with this initiative, for which we constantly look for support.

AfricaNguvu's motto is: "Education doesn't change the world; it changes the people who are going to change the world".

Young girls and boys are the future of the country and the world, and in our organization we believe in the empowerment of people as a driver for change, which is why we see the need to help provide quality education to school children, from the age of 3 all the way until College. Supporting this will help support the development of the country, fight against poverty, provide equality in opportunities and promote basic human values (rights and duties, gender equality, environment, ...) to avoid the manipulation of society, corruption, etc.

Mission

AfricaNguvu's mission is to contribute to the improvement of the educational conditions which the children of the slum of Nyalenda (Kisumu, Kenia)are educated, improve their nutrition and provide resources and qualification to teachers, as well as provide orphaned children with a home, and help integrate disabled children into their society.

We're always trying to achieve our objective of self-sustainability for the school, which we hope to obtain from the income generated by the local social businesses in which we will invest in parallel.

Values

Eduaction is everything.. If we want to change the world, we have to help shape the young minds of today into the great minds of tomorrow.

Equality of opportunities. We help underdeveloped areas have the same opportunity to develop themselves as more developed areas of the world have.

Self sustainability. We don't want this to be a mere personal project, we want it to have a life of its own and not have it depend on anyone in particular, their egos or their money.
