About us


Young Focus gives underprivileged children and young people the chance to develop themselves mentally, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually by means of education and personal coaching.

Young Focus wants to see young people developing their hidden talents and gifting and in doing so escape the vicious cycle of poverty.


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela

Why sponsor?

Every child has the desire to grow up into a healthy adult, and with plenty of opportunities for the future. Children from poverty-stricken families don’t have that ‘luxury’. Sponsoring an individual child will provide a child with education, coaching and health until they graduate from college. It will break the cycle of poverty for the whole family.
