Every Child’s Birthday Celebration 2016

by | Aug 15, 2016


With the help of our friends and donors, each year, on August 15, World VIllages for Children and the Sisters of Mary are able to host “Every Child’s Birthday” to thousands of children living in our Boystowns and Girlstowns across eight countries.

It’s a day full of joy and hope, allowing the children, many of whom, have never experienced a birthday of their own, to enjoy a day of celebration.

Each child receives a small package with a gift, along with cake! Please enjoy some of the photos from our celebrations, made possible by people like you!

The children at our schools come from the poorest of the poor. Each child has their own stories of what their life was before coming to our schools and how their lives are being transformed by the Sisters of Mary programs.  Read the moving stories of our children in their own words.
