Global Impact


Our priority is to protect the vulnerable. Protection looks like providing the bare necessities, such as shelter, clean water, nourishment, clothing, and medical care. This allows us to establish trust and start a young person's journey toward holistic transformation.


Empowerment and self sustainability is our ideal outcome in everything we do. Through education programs, trade & university scholarships, and holistic transition programs, we are able to give young people hope and the tools they need for a bright future.


God's Love is at the epicenter of all we do. We introduce the fatherless to their Heavenly father who is crazy about them. Our goal is to mentor and disciple these young men and women into strong leaders that will change the world around them.
