Causes We Support

Casa De Milagros

The purpose of Casa De Milagros is to nourish the mind, body and spirit of orphaned children and instill in them a sense of self-esteem and self-worth.Our orphanage is a unique healing home where we encourage growth by providing the children with proper health, a good education, art, and recreational and social activities. At Casa de Milagros the children and adults live as a single family, in an atmosphere filled with love and creativity. Living within a cooperative environment all of our children learn how to manage interpersonal relationships, respect each other, and use non-offensive verbal communication. We are a home where children can be children. www.casademilagrosperu.org

Bali Children’s Project

The Bali Children’s Project (BCP) is dedicated to improving life through education. For twenty years we’ve reach out to young people and their families in rural Bali. BCP was founded on the belief that as children are empowered to realize their potential, they will enrich their villages and contribute to the world. By providing opportunities for education, we are giving children the chance for a better tomorrow. We are acutely conscious of Bali’s unique cultural heritage, and the need to safeguard it from outside influences.  BCP programs are designed to integrate the demands of economic progress with the island’s traditional values. www.balichildrensproject.org

Amigos De Santa Cruz

The mission of Amigos de Santa Cruz in Guatemala is to improve the lives of  indigenous people through support for education, better health, a cleaner environment and sustainable economic development. What started in 1998 as an effort to support education by providing local school with needed books and supplies, has grown organically. Amigos efforts have followed the needs presented by the community. Today Amigos has a local staff of 18, many graduates of our higher education scholarship program. They are now models for younger students, and our  leaders.  What make Amigos unique is the focus on rural communities,rather than spreading our resources out to far. www.amigosdesantacruz.org

Buddha Smile School

We believe primary education is the first step in breaking the endemic cycle of poverty and caste-based discrimination in India. At Buddha’s Smile School(BSS), ‘untouchable’ children are not just educated – they are taught to dream. In a structured and caring environment, children not only learn, but discover that they are not condemned to walk in their parent’s footsteps. BSS serves children from local slums and villages, delivering primary education with love, care, and motivation since 2003.  We understand education goes beyond classroom learning, requiring play and discovery with music and art. We foster an atmosphere of love, kindness, and healing.  www.buddhas-smile-school.org

The Art Creation Foundation For Children

Art Creation Foundation For Children is a non-profit arts organization created for education and personal growth of children in need in Jacmel, Haiti. We teach street children art so they have a future. Children achieve self-sufficiency via the arts and education as well as a sense of social responsibility, community and connectedness. Children were selected based on specific criteria: never attending school nor eating on a regular basis, many children are orphaned and destined to a life on the streets or severe poverty. Knowing these children now have an opportunity for a better life, an education, consistent supply of food and medical care is a relief to the children. www.artforhaitianchildren.org
