Our vision is to see every child in Africa in a permanent, loving family and coming to know their Heavenly Father.

We believe that money should never be the reason a child does not have a family.  One of the biggest limitations to serving orphaned and vulnerable children is money.

Our role is to offer the community an opportunity to reach the most vulnerable children through well managed funds that ensures the greatest benefit.
