The association consolidates efforts by creating synergy to empower vulnerable populations including children, youth, women, elderly, persons living with disabilities and marginalized communities. We invite contributions and donations from groups and individuals who wish to support our mission, in transforming lives. As Pope John Paul II said, “Nobody is so poor that he has nothing to give, and nobody is so rich that he has nothing to receive”. Every cent Counts in our mission.
