Education for all Dreams
Education for all Dreams is a project formed within MYCRO programs to help salvage the educational challenge in all serving countries in Africa. We believe that if children, youth, and women should attain their dreams and aspirations, Education must be paramount. With greater efforts by the United Nations and other key sectors to improve the sector, there are still countless challenges facing its achievement.
Initiative for Safer Health

It is clear that Child Rights are fundamental freedoms and the inherent rights of all human beings below the age of 18. MYCRO strongly believes that these rights apply to every child, irrespective of the child’s background, parent’s / legal guardian’s race, color, sex, creed, or another status. The importance of this is the equality of opportunity. Girls should be given the same opportunities as boys. Children all over the world must be/should have the same human rights and should be given the same chance to enjoy an adequate standard of living.
Water & Sanitation
Poor water and sanitation threaten the lives of many African communities and this affects children and women the most. “Water and Sanitation is a cornerstone of public health,” said WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan. “Improved sanitation contributes enormously to human health and well-being, especially for girls and women. We know that simple, achievable interventions can reduce the risk of contracting the diarrheal disease by a third”. Millions of children, women, and youth in Africa have never accessed a prepared build toilet or safe water.
