No amount is too much or too little.

Our mission is to ensure that no child in the world needs to live in extreme poverty.

  • Led by incredible Kenyan leaders and staff, the Furaha Community Foundation (FCF) is a community of hope. From its start as a tutoring group for a handful of children, FCF has grown to be a vibrant Primary School of 500 children grades pre-Kindergarten to Class 8, and High School of 150 students in 2014- on its way to reaching its capacity of 200 students. A large proportion of the children are HIV+ orphans, the poorest of the poor. From the beginning days of a few volunteers to a quality facility and staff of over 50 gifted and committed Kenyans.

  • Current work in Haiti is led by Lucson Dervilus, a local Haitian, who studied for 2 years in the United States. Lucson grew up as an orphan himself. He wanted to come back to his home village in Hinche and surrounding small poor villages in Palma and Jacob to start a school for children who would never have a chance to be educated. In 2010 a school was built which has now grown to 8 classes, with with a new class added every year. 50% of the children are orphans ranging from Preschool to 6th Grade with 400 students, with a new High School started in 2017.

  • Zone 18 is infamous. Infamous for all the wrong things – drugs, gangs, violence, poverty, darkness, despair, death. Yet the majority of its nearly 1 million residents are trapped through no fault of their own. Trapped with no way out.

    However, Jose Armas and his organization Esperanza para Guatemala are convinced that through education, vocational training, tutoring and the teachings of Jesus there is a way out for the children of Zone 18.
