To use our Christian values to help poor and disadvantage young people from African and Caribbean backgrounds living in UK live healthier and enriched lives through training, education, entrepreneurship, arts, media and music. Our special focus is on children, young people, men and women.
Our goal is to share the love of Christ with poor people all over the world by providing essential services such as healthcare, food and education. We will facilitate lifelong, positive changes in the lives of people, especially vulnerable women, young adults and children by implementing empowering educational programs which create sustainable solutions to the challenges arising from disadvantage, poverty and social inequality.
Enrich Africa will achieve this through a multifaceted approach that promotes education, enterprise, health, well-being and personal and financial security.
The word Enrich according to the Cambridge dictionary means 'to improve' or 'enhance the quality or value of…' At Enrich International, our vision is that through the love of Christ we can enrich the lives of vulnerable people and put them on the right track to survival and empowerment.
