Keeping Families Together
Most children in orphanages have living relatives but were relinquished out of desperation. Your purchase helps a mother provide for her children and dream for the future.
People are less vulnerable to human trafficking when they are earning a living wage, and many trafficking survivors find healing in their supportive work environments.
Breaking the Cycle of Poverty
When parents can send their children to school because of your purchase, those kids are able to flourish like never before.
