We have partnered with the Onga community for 8 years; and are now seeing the long-term impact our work is having on the children of Onga.

Increasing family income and securing livlihoods is a core focus of our work with the Onga community, as we work together to tackle the root causes of poverty.

We are also working to reduce malnutrition by teaching mothers the importance of breastfeeding and reducing the incidences of diahorrea through cleaner water sources. 
Severe flooding has torn through family’s homes and crops across Southern Africa. We urgently need your help to support these children and their families with emergency healthcare, food, safe water and sanitation.
