The ways we help

FARA has created successful models of care delivering secure lives for those who were previously denied them, whether through poverty, social exclusion or disability.

Families in poverty

Tackling Poverty Through Education is FARA’s flagship programme, assisting 300 children and their families in six nursery and primary schools in rural communities

Youth at risk

Independent life and work skills for institutionalised and at-risk youth


leaves children susceptible to school dropout and being placed in care; it leaves young adults from state institutions without crucial life skills, at risk of social exclusion and homelessness;  it leaves children with disabilities unable to access vital life-changing therapies and education, and adults with learning disabilities without important holistic care.

FARA works towards the vision of a world in which everyone can live with freedom and dignity in a loving, protective environment, experiencing fulfilled lives whatever their ability.
