Description

We started in 2009 and registered as a charity in 2012. Back then, our main work was supporting a children’s home in Kenya by sending volunteers, providing education, mentoring and physical provisions. Through this work, another substantial impact arose: the positive effect of volunteering on the volunteers themselves.

Over the years our charity has naturally evolved to focus on this important work, and to extend our work with young people in the UK who have experienced difficult backgrounds. We found that by encouraging them to engage in helping others, they experienced an increase in self esteem and a sense of purpose that was able to drive them forwards with enthusiasm.

In 2017 we started to offer emotional support, training and volunteer placements in the UK at our home, Pause Cat Cafe. Through these placements we have helped hundreds of young people, particularly those who need extra support due to shyness, disability or learning difficulties.
