Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the physical, educational, and social situation of orphaned, abandoned, and neglected children in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Description

Through grants to Congolese organizations, as well as awareness-raising, we provide the opportunity for individuals and communities to support young people in a region devastated by ongoing conflict and natural disaster.

Our work is based on six pillars, all with a common goal- the children of DRC achieve their true potential, educationally, professionally, and personally . Our partner organizations:

A dvocate for children abandoned by or separated from their families, arrange visits where possible and appropriate, and serve as mediators where we can.

Create training centers and opportunities for vulnerable children.

Fight against sexual exploitation of minors, to prevent HIV/AIDS, sexually-transmitted infections, and teen pregnancy. We fight for their access to regular food, clean water, and medical care.

P rotect child victims of armed conflict and torture, and fight against any form of discrimination that can prevent a child from achieving his or her true potential.

P rovide moral and material assistance for the children in their care.

Reorient children into formal education when appropriate, and children for whom this isn’t an option into viable vocational training programs.
