Where We Work

Change 1’s Life is a charity that is making a difference. We help street children across Sub-Saharan Africa by working with local authorities, orphanages and our own shelters to support children. Our aim is to educate street children, giving them a safe environment to live, play and grow.

Our Vision

A world where poverty doesn’t have a meaning.

Our goals

1. Help people have a better quaity of life.
We all have a basic human right to have access to shelter, food, clean water and adequate clothing.

2. Equal rights for men and women.
We believe women are still widely misrepresented and repeatedly oppressed. We will help poor women claim their rights and campaign to reduce violence against women.

3. Save lives
We will ensure we are there to support and save lives of people in need due to poverty, natural disaster’s or catastrophe’s by providing the necessities food, shelter, clean water and sanitation.

4. Ensure all children have access to education.
Where possible we will ensure we provide children with scholarly materials and sponsorship to ensure all children can learn to read and write.

We have ambitous plans for the future, because we believe one day no one will have to suffer the consequences of poverty.
