Lina is a qualified Social Worker with front-line social sciences experience in the UK and Australia and having been born and bred in Zimbabwe (Africa), Lina witnessed the devastating adverse impacts of disadvantaged children and history repeating itself through generations if action is not taken. Lina believed that it was possible to bring about positive change to the lives of these children. Through her insight, passion and experience, she has raised awareness of this vulnerable group of children, with the support of numerous other supporters to including the co-founders.
Investing in children today will transform societies tomorrow
And the right investment starts with Education.
Education fosters decision making skills and critical thinking. Children who attend school are taught about values, morals, and ways to solve problems. With the ability to make important decisions and consider all possibilities, children will no doubt be more successful in their personal and professional lives.
We care for children and try to assist them in areas of need, especially, Education and Health . Health is very important in a children’s upbringing, it plays a part in a child’s life.
