With playful education, we are breaking the vicious cycle of poverty in East Africa.

Children face significant challenges daily in the rural areas of Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, and Zambia, such as sexual and domestic violence, child labor, (contagious) diseases, forced marriage, teenage pregnancy, and gender inequality. Many of these children do not attend school or drop out of school early.

“Education is the best weapon which you can use to change the world.”

– Nelson Mandela

Education is crucial to break the generational cycle of poverty and gender inequality. Join for Joy contributes to improving the living conditions of vulnerable children in these areas by playfully stimulating quality education, gender equality, physical health, and social resilience.

Join for Joy Zambia

Since 2022, Join for Joy Zambia operates via her local office in Lusaka, Zambia.

Partner organizations

For the coordination of the program, we work closely with Macheo Children’s Center (Kenya), Zikomo Foundation (Malawi) and Caritas Uganda (Uganda). These partners have been selected on the basis of their affinity with sports and play for child development and their involvement in local communities. For example, in addition to the Join for Joy program, our partners are involved in water supply, food and agricultural supply, more general poverty alleviation and health care.
