You can transform lives through the power of play!
There’s still time to change children’s lives and get your 2017 tax receipt with a donation today!
As 2017 comes to a close, we’re working with children in 52 refugee camps across six countries to ignite their power to triumph over poverty, war and disease. We believe that children need more than a tent over their heads and food in their bellies to survive. They must want to survive.
Donate today to help child refugees and other vulnerable children welcome 2018 with hope.
