What We Do

They say it takes a village to raise a child, so we want to make the villages as healthy as possible. This includes body, mind, and soul. We are passionate about nutrition, education, forgiveness & love. We have 110 youth that attend our program on a monthly basis ranging from ages 6 to 18 years old. We feed over 300 kids a month and run a weekly leadership program for high school boys. This leadership program is in efforts to raise them up to be leaders and so they can physically lead their own communities. We also have a food and nutrition program that teaches kids about healthy food and gardening along with proper nutrition.

Interesting Info

We have seen 75% of our kids have a reduction in anger.
We have helped 25 kids get jobs for the first time.
We want to be more visible in more communities in Charlotte.
