The past few months have been a busy time for Atlas, with many exciting updates happening! With your continued support, our local partners across the world continue to work with thousands of children to give them the chance to thrive.
Our newest local partner, Bhubesi Pride Foundation, is working in rural Lilongwe, Malawi, to help children fulfil their potential. BPF have built a Sports and Education Community centre, where children enjoy rugby sessions and are supported with their education. Malawi suffers from extreme poverty and food insecurity, as well as severe issues with gender inequality, meaning BPF offers a vital lifeline to children in Lilongwe. Through assisting the children in school, teaching them about health and wellbeing, and promoting gender equality, BPF is inspiring children to fulfil their potential and help their communities.
Atlas and BPF are having transformational impacts on children like Felix, who has albinism and is often subject to harsh discrimination and prejudice. Felix struggles with this discrimination, but has found hope through BPF's Reconnect program. Through this program, coaches at BPF work with Felix and his team mates to ensure Felix no longer faces discrimination from the other children. Felix is now becoming a great rugby player, and is much happier with his new friends, thanks to BPF's Reconnect program.
To help more children like Felix thrive, check out our social media to find out how you can sponsor BPF's founder, Richard, on his London to Paris cycle ride in October, where all money raised will go directly to BPF.
