We work with dedicated grassroots organizations to identify conditions creating barriers to education for orphans and vulnerable children to provide sustainable initiatives that are focused on local resources to address the issues. Overwhelmingly, they request education for their children to create a path for a better future. Instead of bringing solutions with us to these communities, we work closely with community members to design programs to meet their specific needs. Our initiatives are based on their feedback to improve education for orphans and vulnerable children. Whenever possible, we employ and use local resources to help the local economy. All our projects are designed to be sustainable while mindful of recycling and producing minimal negative impact on the local and world environment.

The uniform program provides school uniforms for orphans and vulnerable children giving them an opportunity to attend school. Whenever possible we purchase materials locally, grant a sewing machine to women caring for orphans, and start their business by paying them to make the uniforms. Learn more 

Light to Read

The Light to Read program provides literacy education for women and young girls caring for orphans. In rural areas where there is no electricity we provide solar lights to give them the ability to study at night. The program teaches reading, writing, and arithmetic. After enrollment, the women in the program receive money to invest as a group. When these women can read with the children in their care, they foster a lifelong love of reading and education. Learn more
