Who We Are
Saving Lives in Africa
Missions are taking place in Africa, with destinations in Congo, Zambia, Sudan, Namibia. Founder Erika "Harika" Avery (1978-2022) was a therapist and mother with a heart for children, and has delivered aid to at risk youth in remote, impoverished African villages. She believed in fellowship adventures and was being assisted by a team of compassionate volunteers, including her husband James, a lawyer with substantial NGO aid program experience, and son Nathan.
Now that Harika has returned to the light, James is often asked what will he and Nathan do now? "We will continue on the path she lead us..." Erika was a true Muslim, who believed in one God and that Muhammad is his messenger. She believed we should strive for equal opportunity for all children, and that education is the path to achieve it.
