Each one should have a hope-filled future.
Our story began back in 2006 – and since then, we’ve been working with trusted leaders in Kenya and Uganda to give vulnerable children a future.
Droplets in a Stream (DIAS) is an ACNC-registered charity based in Brisbane, Australia, with tax deductibility status. DIAS operates with no overheads (all administrative costs are covered by the Directors), which means 100% of all donations go directly to the children in Africa.
We resource four African-based partners, who are trusted leaders in their communities. We believe leaders know what their communities need – better than we do, living on the other side of the world. They live in the same conditions, they suffer the same illnesses, they rub shoulders daily with the children they serve. So DIAS’ role is to train and mentor them; give financial support and practical skills; and provide due diligence with projects.
Our vision is to see children grow up receiving an education, health care and a safe home. Our every project or action must work towards building up and nurturing children because they are often the most neglected, but also the most vital part in altering a community. They are the next generation of leaders.
The DIAS way is all about going low and going slow. Long-term change might take time initially; DIAS has spent a more than a decade fostering relationships with key leaders and hearing their dreams for their communities. It takes time but it leads to long-term, lasting change that alters generations.
