World Villages for Children

World Villages for Children is a nonprofit providing financial support to the charity programs of the Sisters of Mary.

Thanks to our supporters, the Sisters of Mary provide food, care and education for more than 20,000 children in seven countries. These children are among the most marginalized and vulnerable. Our Villages – also referred to as Boystowns and Girlstowns – provide our children with a fully accredited in-house education program and vocational training. In Guatemala, Korea, and Brazil, the Sisters of Mary also run medical clinics and hospitals where they care for the poor.

To date, World Villages for Children has helped 150,000 children and their families break free from a life of poverty.

COVID-19 Update from Sister Maria Cho

During this uncertain time, please be assured that it is our main concern to keep the boys and girls in our care safe and healthy.

We provide 20,000 children with three meals daily. That’s 60,000 meals each day. With food shortages effecting countries around the world, would you please consider making a donation to help feed these children?

Thank you so much for your ongoing support during this time of upheaval and health concern.

Here is a  message of thanks from our children!
