Mission Statement

NAFE-US aims to provide support, health, education and self-sustainability to youth around the world, while offering our volunteers intercultural and educational opportunities to serve youth today and gain a broader world perspective. This aids in developing a lifelong appreciation for humanitarian service and allows young people to experience mentoring, positivity, safety and respect. We value the rich diversity of cultures, traditions, socio-economic status, and life-styles. Our projects will build on respect for the youth, local customs, social-norms, cultures and traditions.

Description

NAFE-US provides forgotten, under-educated and poverty stricken children with educational opportunities, starting with sometimes building the school itself, as well as the guidance to develop skills and tools to reach their potential, contribute positively to society, and to become self-sufficient. Our projects focus on language development as well as physical fitness, critical thinking and life skills. For these children, thinking outside the box means understanding that they do not have to be subjected to the same life their parents and grandparents have had. We open the eyes of children reared in poverty or with limited resources to the possibilities they can have outside of their everyday environment. We give them the skills so that they understand that they can DO anything, BE whatever they want, and believe in their future.

We hope to give all the children in our projects a solid sense of self, through education and nurturing, leading them to thrive with their own independence and strength.
