Children Are the Future

We are a small non-profit organization made entirely of volunteers who believe that giving every child and young adult education and the opportunity to develop their potential is the key to breaking the vicious circle of poverty. We believe in people-to-people partnerships of solidarity and rely entirely on the generosity of people like you, and the work of reliable partner non-profit organisations in the field to achieve our objectives. Any donation we receive contributes directly to offer a child or young adult a better future.

In CAF, another way of volunteering is by supporting those who look forward to reinforcing their English skills by offering these online classes. ... See MoreSee Less
