Mission Statement

Friends of the Orphans is a nonsectarian, nonprofit organization, committed to supporting the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children in Latin America and the Caribbean. Through the generosity of sponsors, donors and volunteers, Friends of the Orphans strives to end the cycle of poverty by providing food, shelter, clothing, education, health care and hope to thousands of children internationally. The beneficiary of our support is Nuestros Peque os Hermanos International, A.C., a nonprofit corporation, which serves children throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Description

Friends of the Orphans is a fundraising organization whose primary function is to provide financial support to raise, nurture and educate children living in Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos homes. Friends of the Orphans staff meet on a regular basis with NPH leadership to review programs, approve budgets, plan tours to homes, arrange fundraising events, and support other NPH activities.

Friends of the Orphans offers a sponsorship program which allows sponsors to communicate with a child of any age, living at an NPH home. Sponsors receive letters from the childeach time they write,progress reports detailing the child;s academic progress, and a special note on Sponsor Day. Twice a year, supporters and child sponsors from around the world are invited to visit the homes to get personally acquainted with their sponsored children.

It is not uncommon for donors and other volunteers to share their expertise by setting up or participating in special projects, such as a dental clinic, construction projects, etc.
