We believe in a brighter future created for, and by, children, where the course of a person’s life is not dictated by the circumstances of their birth, where there is genuine equality of opportunity, regardless of race, gender, or beliefs.
We know that education is the key to ending poverty and achieving sustainable positive change. Children can only learn effectively in a safe, secure and loving environment.
World Villages for Children supports the education programmes of the Sisters of Mary to run live-in schools for the most deprived boys and girls across the world.
In the Philippines, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, Honduras and Tanzania we provide equitable access to education for boys and girls and fund school places and all the daily care needed for nearly 20,000 of the world’s most deprived children each year.
Alongside a strong academic foundation, the children learn the vocational and social skills they need to find employment, gain confidence and self respect.
Above all they experience the joy of a childhood free from fear and the chance of a future free from poverty for themselves and their loved ones.
