LAFF provides funding and assistance to grass-roots projects which aspire to become self-sustaining. They aim to create independence from outside help, not dependence on it. Giving abandoned, vulnerable children and young people the tools and the opportunity to change their own future means giving them a better chance in life. Equally, developing partnerships with innovative community-led organisations wanting to be self-sustaining and independent means LAFF are not creating a long-term dependence on external financial support...LAFF support a variety of projects that help the young and vulnerable - addressing the long and short term causes that drive children to live and work on the streets. These projects meet basic needs - for food, water, safety, shelter, sanitation and medical supplies; provide access to education and training for poor and vulnerable children and young adults; and provide grants to help work and income-generating projects achieve sustainability and independence..By tackling both the long term and short term issues associated with poverty and inequality, LAFF are helping to: overcome the challenges which force children onto the streets in the first place; break the self-perpetuating cycle of poverty through providing access to education and training for those who need it most; enable grass-roots organisations to become self-sufficient and financially independent, allowing them to focus on the future health, welfare, prospects and happiness of those in their careAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
