Our Mission

Our mission is to build sustainable communities in Africa, where hope thrives and legacies of opportunity are created, breaking the generational cycle of poverty.Guided by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we provide a future of opportunity for the people of Africa by facilitating access to clean water, proper nutrition, medical care, education and training. By empowering individuals and families with the vital resources they need, they are able to make a lasting impact in their communities and change the nation as a whole.

 

WE DON’T GIVE A HAND OUT.

 

WE GIVE A HAND UP.

 

Throughout our years of experience, we have seen hunger and disease stifle progress in sub-Saharan Africa. The needs are so great, but traditional aid relief (shipments of food) only brings up generations of people to rely on others for their daily bread – keeping them locked in a cycle of poverty.

Child Legacy International functions to break that cycle by requiring participation from the local populations in the areas in which we work – so that the local people have ownership in the development and fortification of their own communities.
