OUR Mission and Vision:
To empower children of the jungle so that they can break the cycle of poverty and abuse and share that message of transformation with their family, community, country and world.
Poverty comes in many forms; it can be spiritual, moral, monetary, or physical. In fact, in a person’s life poverty almost never presents itself in one form but is entangled with another and is the result of the direst form of poverty, the poverty of not being in right relationship with the creator God.
Because the jungle is a developing environment, the people of the jungle not only contend with the first four forms of poverty stated above but they also contend with another form or poverty, intellect. With limited resources and purpose to think, a person has little reason to change, but rather, they will simply do as others say or what they have seen done.
Taking this into consideration, the people of this region are impoverished in many forms, imagine what their children have seen, what they have been told to do, and what they will blindly follow into adulthood. Odds are the cycle will continue.
Our mission is to provide an opportunity for these children to choose to be in right relationship with God, through providing education and thus breaking the stronghold of poverty for all future generations.
