About Us

We are on a mission to end the global orphan crisis.

Our Vision

As a Jesus-centered organization we aim to rescue and bring restoration to orphaned children living in the harshest places. We accomplish this by partnering with families, community leaders, and churches to eliminate extreme poverty by addressing vulnerabilities, providing education, and creating opportunities to empower those who have been forgotten.
