About Our Children, Our Future, Inc.
We are a group of family members and friends who believe that children are the future of our communities. We are aware of the poverty in the Cape Verde Islands and have decided to give back to our homeland. We want to help as many children as possible. We are working together to create opportunities for underprivileged children in the Cape Verde Islands. We engage in charitable activities to carry out our mission. 
We believe that children are the future!
We believe that every child deserves a chance!
