NAKUONA e.V. is a charity passionate about helping to improve the quality of life for orphans
Interview with the founders of Nakuona e.V. The initial, primary focus for NAKUONA e.V. will be the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), which happens to be one of the top three poorest country in the world. Wars, disease, political unrest and poverty are contributing factors for the over 2 million children orphaned, and this number is still growing. The living conditions are hard, and the cost of living is high. NAKUONA e.V. was birthed out of a deep concern for the orphans and orphanages in DRC and a desire to help meet their needs and help improve their quality of life.
Nakuona is a Swahili word that means ‘I see you’.
As a charity, we desire to create opportunities where all of us can play a part in helping to meet the needs of orphans and orphanages.
"Do what you can, with what you have, from where you are.”
The weight of truth in this quote was the catalyst needed to move Nakuona from the realm of a ‘good intention’ to becoming a registered charity geared toward and passionate about meeting the needs of both orphans and orphanages first in DRC and thereafter, God willing, other African and third-world countries. NAKUONA e.V. desires to
- awaken compassion
- highlight the needs faced by orphans and orphanages
- mobilize support and see the quality of life for orphans improved.
With the thousands upon thousands of charities around the world that are doing amazing work, one begs the question, why start another charity?
The answer is simple: because the need is great! If the existing charities had the world covered, there would be no needs left. However, the reality is that despite the great work that is currently being done, there is still more that can be done. Despite the hundreds of thousands that are being helped there are still countless needing help.
Let us do what we can with what we have from where we are. We can do more when we do it together!
