We support local humanitarian heroes who care for children born into war, illness or abject poverty.

HOW WE DO IT: Children’s Gardens — massive vegetable gardens and hen houses — serve as the paramount delivery vehicle for our aid. All of our projects are managed by local people and governed by effective anti-corruption strategies. We are active in global hotspots where we have already found and tested a local partner who accepts our demands for 100% transparency.
HOW YOU CAN HELP: make a tax-deductible donation by credit card or come with us on a service trip.
