Where We Work
What We Do
Our work is focused on meeting the needs of the poorest of the poor children in order to help them become healthy, get an education, grow spiritually and become productive citizens. All of this is done while trying to keep the child in their family of origin. In many cases the children we serve are either single orphans or are in the are of guardians or other family members. Our belief is that God put the child in that family in the first place, so we are here to do what it takes to preserve that family bond, while helping the whole family to grow holistically through the love of Jesus.
