Our Mission

1. To alleviate the unbearable suffering and heartbreaking life loss of orphans and vulnerable children by providing them with their basic needs while keeping them in the community (within their extended family kins), and by processing for adoption at home and abroad for those who do not have close family kins. (The latter will be kept in an orphanage for a while).

2. To build the economic capacity of single mothers by providing financial support for income generating schemes (IGS) through pity loans and counseling on small trades so that they will be able to keep their children on having a decent life.
