There is a common misconception amongst many that the state of the world is getting worse with every year that passes, but although there are obvious issues that we must face and respond to, the outlook in many areas is actually much more positive than you would believe. As the following statistics show, great improvements have been made in terms of people’s well-being, and this is something to acknowledge.
Did you know?
87% of the global population has some access to electricity
86% of adults across the world can read and write

Since our partnerships with respective projects began
In Zanzibar, our current focus is on providing teaching assistance and sports coaching. This is important due to the high number of students that attend each school and a lack of available resources. Our long-term aim is to help construct new classrooms to accommodate the growing number of students, once we have the funding required to do this. Given our achievements in Ghana and Kenya, so we have every confidence that we will soon be telling you about the similar progress we have been able to make in Zanzibar. If you would like to help us expedite our building work in Zanzibar, you can do so here.
