About the United States

Kids growing up in poverty in the U.S. face familiar challenges. Children with nowhere to go after school are at risk of falling into bad behaviors and dropping out, health care gaps mean easily prevented illnesses push kids further behind, and the struggles of getting post high-school education can drain hope out of even the most optimistic.

That's why we focus on providing programs and camps to give kids a safe place to learn and have fun. We provide access to the medical and dental services they need, and specially designed youth programs to help equip them with the skills they need to achieve their dreams.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
