In Magugu, traditional farming practices have been severely impacted by the effects of climate change; families are struggling with low crop production. We have partnered with the Magugu community for 17 years; and are seeing the long-term impact our work is having on the children here. 

Improving farming practices and livelihoods has been a core focus of our work, including restoring irrigation systems so farmers can grow crops all year round. We have also been training community healthcare workers to strengthen the health of mums and babies and improve child protection and literacy. 

Your support is making a life-changing impact for children in Magugu.


900 families are now better able to feed their children after farmers attended livestock training to boost their food production.


61% of Grade 3 students can now read with comprehension, up from 51% in 2018, thanks to reading clubs, parent and teacher training, and new books.


1,100 women and men got microfinance loans to help them start and grow their businesses, and provide for their children.


1,000 children received birth certificates, helping them to access essential services like healthcare and education.


Partnering together for a sustainable future.

By supporting the Magugu community, you are making an incredible difference in vulnerable children's lives.

Your support is helping the Magugu community by improving the physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the most vulnerable children.

Through decades of experience, we have proven that the most effective way to help a child is to strengthen their entire community, caring for every child along the way.

Together, we are tackling some of the root causes of poverty and equipping the community to prepare for the future. We're now building confidence within the community to continue developing their new skills and changing children's lives.

“Many families have benefitted from this canal. People are able to pay their children’s school fees and we can provide for our families’ basic needs. We are now living better lives than before.”
