Ways To Give

Your donations are essential to continue operating our Children’s Villages. Without the support of loyal friends like you, we could not consistently offer a roof, three meals a day, the necessary care and comprehensive education to more than 20,000 children who have been entrusted to us. Without you, our children could not escape poverty and would have no hope in the future.
