Children and young people are equipped and empowered to have a future in which they:
- Reach their potential
- Live independently
- Have dignity
- Be productive
- Live free from poverty
To work in partnership with local community based organisations to “Give a Child a Future”. This will be done by working towards the achievement of our core objectives known as the Three Ps;
Provision: We contribute towards meeting the children’s material and emotional needs.
Protection: We protect the rights of children to have a happy childhood free from neglect, cruelty and exploitation.
Preparation: We support projects that enhance educational opportunities and prepare children to fulfil their potential.
All of our work is guided by the following values:
Integrity: Consistently aiming to create value for money as we pursue excellence and justice whilst constantly listening and learning for improved outcomes.
Empowerment: Creating sustainable opportunities that dignify and nurture independence.
Collaboration: Sharing skills, knowledge, resources, and learning for collective impact.
Compassion: Driven by our Christian faith we believe strongly in helping children and young people of any gender, religion, background, tribe and ability.
Innovation: Proactively and creatively pursuing effective and efficient solutions.
Check out our page on the Sustainable Development Goals to find out how our mission is closely aligned to achieving 8 of the Goals.
Vision Africa is a non-denominational Christian organisation. Our work is a practical expression of God’s compassion and care for his children. However, we never discriminate against children or youths on the basis of their faith or religion and work with children and youths of all faiths across our projects.
Our cost model
We operate a low cost model and aim to keep our overheads as low as practically possible. We generally expend less than 2% of our income on running costs and administration in the UK. Details of this can be seen in our annual reports available elsewhere on this site. With this low cost model you can be assured that money given to Vision Africa goes exactly where it is needed – to help the children in Kenya.
It should be noted that we are not a grant making body and we are not able to support requests for funding from other organisations.
