Stories of impact: Helping kids break the cycle of poverty

Take a deeper look into our impactful programs and you’ll find stories of real lives that have been changed by your generous support.

From community gardens to scholarships, school supplies to teen-driven projects, our programs take shape in many different ways across the 10 countries we serve.

But they all focus on one goal: graduating healthy, educated, empowered and employed adults. We get involved at a critical time of our kids’ lives. During the first two decades, we provide the support of a safe place, a caring team and a path out of poverty.
