To improve the quality of life of children in orphanages in developing countries by providing living necessities while creating an atmosphere of love and hope to mold them into future leaders.
Recognizing the Rights of Children
As stated in the Convention on the Rights of the Child (established in 1990):
Every child should have the right to proper physical, mental, and social development while being protected against all forms of neglect, cruelty, and exploitation.
Innovation and a sense of Hope
We treat all those we work with and serve with compassion and care to maximize the impact of our organization.
Through hope can come an opportunity to believe in a successful future for oneself. Our work strives to bring children hope through innovative initiatives that impact the lives of children around the world.
We believe that no child should be living in the streets alone or working at such a young age to care and fend for themselves. We vision a world where every child has proper and safe living arrangements along with access to educational opportunities, a network of support, and a healthy environment that will help them grow and succeed.
