We are an international charitable organization inspired by Mende Nazer. Mende’s testimony transcends ethnicity, religion and gender and it is the magnet that has drawn in people from all over the world to hear her tell her story. With this new awareness it is our wish to turn enthusiasm for her story into good works in the heart of the Nuba Mountains.
It is Mende’s lifelong dream to offer a hope and opportunity to the children of her homeland that was robbed from her. Join us now to provide the most important gift we can give, hope. Mende’s people, the Nuba, fell victim to unspeakable atrocities during the 20 year civil war that has only just ended. Your generosity will present an incredible opportunity to help people find their dignity and restore their hope in the future. The time is right.
Our aim is to work with communities to construct primary schools, wells and water purification systems in the impoverished and war-torn Nuba Mountains region of Sudan.
Our vision is that the Nuba Mountains will have a properly equipped and self-sustaining primary education system that will allow their children to have the basic education required for further development and a hopeful future. It is also our vision that all those living in the Nuba Mountains will have access to potable water which will provide for healthy living and regional stability.
- Construction projects are to be built through community effort
- Materials are to be purchased from local markets
- Local designs are to be followed
- All foundation members are volunteers and receive no salary
- We will use volunteer and donor resources wisely and with integrity of purpose
- We will conduct our activities with professionalism, integrity and compassion
Through these principles and values we will maximize every dollar donated, stimulate the local economy and promote ownership of the community. This is different to many foreign aid projects that can tend to be wasteful, imported and unfamiliar.
