Funding Opportunities – Special Packages

Please remember: Every penny of your donation goes directly to the field
Nothing is taken for overhead or administrative costs

Following is a series of “packages” that are specially designed to directly meet the most compelling needs of marginalized village families and their kids. We invite your support for these ongoing needs.

To illustrate the benefits these packages can bring to people’s lives, here are six videos featuring three packages.
And just think, many of the other packages here can have even greater impacts.
