Unfortunately a drop in donations has been a result but the project will continue in the same care level as previous, we are looking forward to the new partnership to continue providing aid for schooling and shelter for the orphanage at "Light Of Hope" in Cambodia

Our Vision

We are a Christian international development organisation based in Australia that raises funds and works with international partners to alleviate poverty and build a brighter future for destitute children in developing countries. We support development initiatives with our implementing partners that focus on the critical needs of destitute children and the communities in which they live. A safe, healthy and nurturing environment is essential to ensure that children and young people integrate into their communities as mature and self-sufficient adults who in turn are able to make a positive contribution to their community.

Our Partners

Implementing partners are selected or developed to help bring about positive change in communities that ensure holistic care for orphaned, abandoned and destitute children is available without regard to gender, social status, ethnic background, political views, or religious affiliation. Our partners proactively work to reduce the incidence of orphaned and abandoned children who live in destitution. Development initiatives lead to increased access of adequate healthcare, primary and high school education, vocational training, and assistance for small business through sustainable livelihoods initiatives like Microfinance.
