“The ultimate expression of generosity is not in giving of what you have, but in giving of who you are"

mission & vision

One child at a time, our vision for a different world free from poverty and with thriving self sustaining communities

HOW DID AID4ORPHANS COME ABOUT?


Aid4orphans initially developed projects with the purpose of helping make the orphanages and schools happier healthier places for children to grow up in, with the end goal of making them self-sufficient. We implement projects that focuses on improving education, healthcare, basic infrastructure and self sustainability

We have now extended our work to involve grassroots projects that build stronger communities and tackle the HIV pandemic. We felt that by helping families and strengthening the community, we ensured that they could care and provide for their children resulting in less abandoned or orphaned children

MAKE A CHANGE

When you educate a girl in Africa, everything changes. She’ll be three times less likely to get HIV/AIDS, earn 25 percent more income and have a smaller, healthier family.

We are Peter and Vanessa Bragg and we live in Newquay in Cornwall. During a family visit to Kenya during August 2007 we visited Likoni Orphanage and Bongwe Primary School and were fortunate enough to spend some time with these lovely children.

Despite the challenging circumstances these children find themselves in they all greeted us with enthusiastic smiles.  
We were in awe of all the adults who, against all the odds, are dedicated to the children’s welfare. It was a humbling experience which left us with a desire to help them as much  as we can.

On our return we set up and registered our charity which we named Aid4orphans. 
Registered Charity number 1127422 

We rely totally on the wonderful support given to us from our family, friends, colleagues, individual sponsors and schools.
