OUR CORE VALUES

We have an unwavering passion for what we do, we speak up on matters of principle. We serve with conviction.

CARE is who we are

For more than 30 years, the Nuba Mountains has been living in the shadows of civil war, poverty and illiteracy. Our people feel neglected and their cry for help goes an answered. International human rights organisations, charity organisations, public, private, and other civil organisations have considered the Nuba Mountains too difficult to reach and too expensive to serve. We see it differently. We believe everyone deserves to live a life of Freedom, dignity and opportunity. Those are the values we espouse to and they drive our Principles of CARE.

COMMITMENT

We love what we do, we embrace challenges, we see things through. We are cognizant of the risks and personal sacrifice our work requires. We still do what we do for the greater good of our community

ACCOUNTABILITY

Without the support of our donors, partners and supporters our work of rebuilding communities in need would be Impossible. We will honour your contribution in Trustworthy and Transparent and manner.

RESPECT

We listen, speak with courtesy and celebrate all inherent differences.

We are joined together by a guided mission to eradicate poverty and illiteracy by ensuring every child can read and write. We embrace Teamwork, collaboration, creativity and authentic self.

EXCELLENCE

We invest in our people, everything we do we it exceptionally. We embrace and learn from our unique and diverse experiences, we let the communities we lead be our teachers.


REFUGEES ARE PEOPLE FULL OF HOPE AND OPTIMISM


One in Four Children is Founded by Stephen Kamal, a child of war and former refugee.

Stephen left the Nuba Mountains in 1996 after an intensely horrific genocidal war, drought and engineered famine that resulted in an estimated 100,000 to 200,000 deaths of the Nuba People. The war brought destruction and immense suffering on our people, it wiped out whole families, flattened down townships and ripped out and continues to rip apart an entire country thirty years and counting.

I lost my entire childhood to the Sudanese Civil war. Twenty Four years and counting I separated with my parents and have yet to experience a continuous fatherly or motherly love and affection.

Despite my experiences as a child of war, former refugee and survivor, my life is 99.9% better than that of my country men right now in the Nuba Mountains.



Education is the pillar of society. You give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, you teach teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

The Catalyst for One in Four Children were a many conversations with Nuba children in Refugee camps living in Uganda, Sudan, Egypt and Kenya, in which many students said lack of quality books was a major pain point for them.

Along with Peter Sambia and Kagi Kowa, Stephen set out to change the narrative for so many of the children stuck in a complete cycle of poverty.

We believe books change lives. We know because we’ve lived on both sides of the fence and the difference some literacy in the way of being able to read and write can make is immeasurable.

By providing books, we give knowledge to children and families to uplift themselves from a life of absolute poverty and indignity.
