Our mission is to help as many of the poorest children in the third world as we can to receive as good an education as their circumstances permit. To do all we can to befriend them, motivate them to want to get educated, to help with their nutritional, medical, psychological, clothing and family well-being: and finally to get them into as good an educational institution as we can find for them. To fulfill this mission we are prepared to feed, clothe, teach, nurture, pay for some of their school costs and work with their families to make certain they have as stable a home environment as possible in order to apply themselves to learning. In the places we work many of the poorest children have only a single parent at home, an abandoned mother. Our mission includes working to improve the prospects and quality of life of abandoned mothers.
