is what makes us who we are. Our mission, values and team members are important parts of our core identity.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to educate and empower an international collective of orphanage caregivers, directors and advocates, who are prepared to sustainably and holistically nurture abandoned children.

Loving children's homes often struggle, unable to grow and care for children to capacity. With insufficient staff who are trained and willing to dedicate their lives to orphan care, children stay on the streets. We intend to change this worldwide issue, and bring more children home. We are doing this in three simple ways...

Our Values

Our values are defining features for how we operate. Not only do we believe them to be excellent principles for structuring an organization, but each of our team members is dedicated to live by them on a personal level. These values are divided into two categories: Those we share as an organization, and those we expect of the orphanages and shelters with whom we partner.
