What we’re about
Empowering compassion. Since 1993 we’ve been empowering locally-led, mercy-based programs in the developing world.
Who we help
We serve orphans, child labor victims and young trafficking survivors through 9 resident-care homes and 12 education centers in Asia and Africa.
Why we’re different
