Sustainability is the key to long term development projects, and at FUNS a central plan of our policies is to ensure that the recipients of any aid are bought out of the ‘cycle of poverty’ which blights the lives of successive generations. FUNS plans are for the organization to play a leading and effective role in the global battle against poverty, starvation, illiteracy, and exploitation. Our goals are to ensure that vulnerable children in the areas we are working in, are no less well fed and clothed than their contemporaries, and that they can take advantage of the same educational opportunities as other children in more fortunate circumstances.

The opportunity to offer children in DRC emergency education and child friendly spaces means that conflicted children…
Self-help Refugee project
Whether refugees are staying in a temporary place while they wait for peace and to be able to return home, or whether they have returned to their homes, FUNS would like to help refugee families to be able to fight for themselves and not rely on outside help. We can do this, among other things, by giving micro-loans and grants (starting capital that is not payable back) to both individuals and to groups.
