Social work assistance

The Exchange

To provide local communities with education & skills that will enable them to develop socially and rise above the vicious circle of poverty. We are working to bridge the gap between rich and poor by providing local NGO’s with the tools, information and knowledge needed to provide a better level of education to their beneficiaries. We aim to bring new skills to an industry which otherwise would not have access without the assistance of volunteers.
