Sponsorship funds help promote literacy in Mitchell County, North Carolina

Mitchell County, nestled in the rugged western mountains of North Carolina, serves as a tourist destination for thousands who flock to the region each year to glimpse its spectacular vistas. The area’s breathtaking beauty and rich culture, however, belie a tragic truth: in this smallest and least populous county of all of North Carolina reside some of the nation’s poorest families. We are incredibly proud that our sponsorship program not only provides weather-appropriate school clothing […]

Excited About What the World Has to Offer

Protecting Children in Kenya from Disease

Our Mosquito Net Fund helps keep children at St. John’s Community Center healthy

In Kenya, children need mosquito nets to protect them from mosquito-borne illnesses so that they’ll be healthy enough to attend school. Each year, we purchase thousands of nets, thanks to donations to our Mosquito Net Fund, which we distribute to our sponsored children and their families.
