Mission

What:

Our mission is to transform the standards of care for orphan and vulnerable children living in orphanages. Our model develops and manages sustainable projects with our orphanage partners to achieve long term results in providing children with critical needs such as food security, nutrition, quality of care, access to education, and health care.

How:

We develop micro projects that are income generating/money saving, reducing an orphanage’s dependence on foreign aid while committing them to a model of transparency. Each project is tailored to the most pressing needs of the children residing in the home, whether its chicken coops to combat malnutrition, or solar panels allowing kids to complete their homework at night. The end goal of each project is to elevate the quality of life for the children while they reside in the orphanage, ultimately creating a home-like environment rather than an institution.

Why:

In the real world, global issues such as poverty, HIV/AIDS, repressive cultural norms, and even war and displacement are real problems that prevent children from being raised with their own families. Most governments in developing countries where an orphan crisis exists do not have the appropriate infrastructure in place to provide social welfare programs addressing this crisis, therefore children have no recourse but to live in orphanages, which can often be understaffed and poorly ran.
