For over 30 years our schools have given more than 6,000 children who live in and near Tijuana's vast municipal garbage dumps a horizon beyond the smell, flies, and refuse.

In 2010, we opened our first school in Nicaragua and have been working hard to help these children gain an education so that they can break the cycle of poverty.

By GIVING, you provide the children both an education and basic necessities to live and grow strong.

Don't wait, their future is in your hands: Donate Today!
