Communities are STRONGER… when they include all their children

Justine’s Story

Give to create loving communities around kids like Justine.

James’ Story

Give now, because disability is not inability.

Healing bodies, hearts, communities

Health

HEALTH

Preventing and curing disabling impairments through medical care. Giving assistive devices like wheelchairs and prosthetics and hearing aids. Strengthening bodies with exercises and providing encouragement to whole families… making children healthier – body and soul.

Education

EDUCATION

Giving children access to learning – sometimes at home and as often as possible at the local school. It’s about making kids as able and mobile as they can be. And it’s about teaching teachers how to welcome these children in, and accommodate for their special needs

Livelihood

LIVELIHOOD

Giving moms and dads access to jobs, especially home-based jobs where they can care for their children. Making whole families healthier and more stable. Giving them hope for a much brighter future.
