Smiles .... and we are still counting 🙂

Families have been handed the tools by IMBA and are now self reliant

Kids take part in our Sports, Arts & Music activities

Children that partake in our programmes now have 3 meals a day & are going to school

Child & family care

Our family care programmes provide a carefully balanced setting for orphaned and abandoned children to grow up in. We do so by assisting households in the local communities with income generating activities. For those children that have been left to their own fate and have no close living relatives we have created a home-feel care solution at IMBA.

Sustainability

In addition to providing hands on training opportunities for participants in our community based child care programmes, our vegetable produce, meat, eggs, grinding mill service, crafts and sculpture sales have successfully earned us vital financial resources to continue operating our core programmes and activities.

Economic empowerment

Our projects seek to travel the extra miles to ensure long term settlement by handing people the tools to achieve self sustenance and enable them to care for their children in our community based family care programme. We aim to foster economic mobility for the communities supporting the children we work with.
