Employees at Vanquis Bank were at the heart of Hatua support. They supported the charity since it was founded through regular fundraising in the office and multiple trips out to Africa to motivate the Hatua kids and support their development.
Here is what some of our volunteers have to say:
“Visiting slums and meeting the children gave me a different perspective on life. My everyday problems are nothing compared to what they have to go through. Being there and seeing their everyday challenges to secure an education makes me feel both fortunate and humble.”
“The whole experience left me speechless. The children were so positive and excited about the opportunity given to them to get a really great education and change their lives and those of their families. You always wish you could do or give more but just to see one child excel and live a better life is what I hope for.”
“I was humbled by the lengths that the children would go to in order to get an education. For me, Hatua means doing something that will improve the lives of underprivileged Africans today and in the future.”
“I couldn’t even imagine what it was going to be like; I was lost for words on my first trip! I did things that I never thought I could do. I will always continue to support Hatua.”
