Caring for children can go well beyond the boundaries of your own community.


Over 237 Million children in sub-Saharan Africa live in extreme poverty.1

That’s living on less than USD $1.90/day.

It’s hard to imagine, but children are 25 percent more likely to live in extreme poverty than an adult in sub-Saharan Africa1. Without access to the basics like clean water, food, and healthcare, children have no other option than to help their families survive. This leads to less education, fewer opportunities, and less likelihood of reversing the crushing cycle of poverty.

Lalumwe focuses on sub-Saharan Africa because this region has exploded from half the world’s population of children living in extreme poverty to over 71% in just 10 years.1 And without any intervention, the number of lives will continue to compound.


We work with our local impact partners to enter into communities to teach the beautiful game of soccer and work with leaders to assess needs. As we discover what each community is lacking, we take action on two fronts.

Critical infastructure

We believe in the power of building resilient infrastructure that can withstand challenges. We make it our mission to prioritize critical areas such as water accessibility, healthcare, energy, and infrastructure for youth development.

Creative Education

Banding together, we can deliver important training, broaden horizons, spark curiosity, promote development, and change the knowledge landscape of rural Africa. Knowledge is power, and education is empowerment.

Uniting for a better tomorrow

By taking collective action in the name of lifting up humanity, we can turn the tides of poverty in rural Africa. The ripple effect from one singular lift reaches far and wide, and every step we take together ignites positive momentum in the fight to enhance lives and transform communities.

Together, we are impactful. Together, we rise as a force for good. Together, creating lasting change is possible.
