What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Orphans caused by the lingering poverty of communism in eastern Europe are some of the greatest at risk of human trafficking. With no where to go and no opportunities they become easy victims of Human trafficking organizations.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our Organizations goals is to save those that the country considers the least of their society from the streets and risk of human trafficking. We then help them acquire an education and include them in a family like environment. They are then encouraged to go back out into their local communities and help those that are still greatly in need in many various physical and emotional supportive programs. <br/><br/>We hope that these young adults will impact the poor communities and less fortunate of their country and will grow and mature into future leaders that can affect country wide change in their nation.

We provide homes where these at risk young adults can come and live with out the fear of needing to find ways to provide and survive. We put them through college in studies that they want to pursue while providing them with support and infrastructure to do their community outreaches. <br/><br/>We allow the kids to chose which way they believe they can best benefit those around them and work with them to provide the tools and supplies needed to accomplish those goals.

We are able to financially provide the housing, food, support, transportation and education needed to elevate these young adults from poverty into leaders in their communities. We provide the needed materials, transportation, logistics, and finances needed to operate their outreach programs.

We know we are making progress by the impact seen in the communities we reach into. In the village out reach program we saw increase in the local kids involvement in our camps, we saw increases in families living conditions after visits and supports from our teams.<br/><br/>In the homeless program we can see the number of people we are able to feed weekly during the winter month's with our feeding program, and in the orphanages we can see the relationships and emotional growth of the orphan's we visit.

We just haven't accomplished what we have not be able to support financially. We would like to expand our reach into more communities, have homes in more cities, reach into more peoples lives. All of this requires funds and that is the only thing that is prohibiting us from accomplishing more of our goals.
