About ANIDA Image

ABOUT ANIDA

Founded 24 years ago, as a skill and support network we aim to empower underprivileged communities by removing obstacles that prevent children from accessing education and which keeps women and their families in poverty.

Today, we are striving towards sustainable change through a lifestyle of sharing education, upholding our values, strengthening communities and connecting with people. We believe a genuine opportunity is only complete when it multiplies.

VISION
Creating opportunity through access to education.
MISSION
An International organization rooted in Christian values that create opportunities through community-based projects, for individuals facing a difficult reality.

OUR CORE TEAM

We are individuals who believe that we need both passion and commitment to create a world of difference.

LEADERSHIP

We believe in personal growth and strive to become better leaders to better serve our communities.
