Flame is about inspiration. We connect with slum dwelling children, and inspire them to leave begging or rubbish collecting and start school or re-engage in education. The goal is that each child reaches beyond their potential, lifting the roof off their current dreams. We call the process of slum child becoming young leader - “The Full Circle” – kids emerge as confident leaders in their communities, inspiring others in education, service and leadership. The ultimate.
Flame is about persistence. In any work done amongst the poor and vulnerable, the journey is a long one. We believe that a relentless determination to not give up on people is an essential ingredient in seeing individuals reach beyond their potential. Optimism and faith in a better future motivates and brings eternal transformation. With the necessary knowledge, skills and support people can be empowered to make better choices. These result in lasting changes which ripple into the community. Never quit.
Flame works with children and youth, their families and communities, all faiths, religions, genders and ethnicities.
