WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
ONG Enfance Harmonieuse is devoted to providing holistic help and support to the children in the Ivory Coast. Our main activities focus on developing the Socio-Education Complex in the small village of Brobo. This includes a kindergarten with over 120 pupils from unprivileged families who would not otherwise be able to receive education at all.
For now, we have completed the construction of the classrooms, sanitation, dining hall, and recently - a fully equipped playground. In the future, however, we wish to provide a boarding for children with disabilities, as well as a social center to fully provide the local community with support in educating the youngest ones.
We are pleased to announce the launching of a heart adoption program, where everyone - an individual or a company can fund an academic scholarship for the most talented children of Brobo, or adopt a child with disabilities! The list of children participating in the program can be found on our partner's website under this link: globalawarnessmovement.
HOW TO MAKE A DONATION
The long-term vision of Enfance Harmonieuse is to create a learning space inclusive for all children. Thus, our next goal is to build housing for children with disabilities where pupils coming from the neighboring villages could stay overnight, receiving necessary rehabilitation and medical treatment as well as empowering parents with knowledge of occupational therapy they can implement to better their quality of life.
With that goal deeply rooted in our hearts, we kindly ask you for your support. You can support our initiative by making a donation via our Buy Me a Coffee fanpage.
