Find out How

Every child has a divine right to grow in a loving caring family. But many are denied this right. Our mission is to change that.

Our Four-Tier Approach to Changing Childhoods


We run 35 projects and have touched 10,000 children and women and many families on the margins.

But there’s more to be done to give childhood back to children. Here’s how you can make that change happen.

Become a Changemaker

Our Childhood Changemakers know change needs a long-term commitment. Their regular donation gives children back their childhood and young lives can have a chance at futures.


Our friends will do anything for money. For the children. A garage sale, a lemonade stand, climbing mountains or riding a bike cross country. And they have fun doing it.


Everyone has the power to effect change. Our volunteers use their God-given skills and not only brought change in the lives of the children, but something changed within too.
