BUY A TREE, CHANGE A LIFE has partnered with People for Care and Learning. From Children’s Homes to Learning Centers, PCL cares about children! PCL is special because they support their children all the way through college and children aren't asked to leave the center when they become an adult… the home is always open to them regardless of age!
Our Children’s Homes are more than just orphanages – they strive to build a culture of family and community so that the children have a safe environment to come home to every day. Instead of the anxiety that comes with hoping to be being adopted, the children are able to stay in the community in which they are raised.. They also provide the children with the right opportunities so that they can learn, grow, and become successful. This, in turn, provides the emotional and physical infrastructure that every child needs to feel confident and empowered to dream and reach beyond the cultural norm – which for most in this region is a cycle of poverty, broken families and dysfunction. The basic model is centered on “soul-care” which understands that each child is a precious soul that must be cared for and nurtured. We want them to become agents of change – first in their own lives and then in the broader world around them.
Eradicate Poverty Through Education
Education is one of the most important aspects of the ongoing poverty cycle. Without education, it is impossible for these communities to break the cycle of poverty they are accustomed to and become self-sufficient. Education gives the people of this region the confidence they need to start their own businesses, to give back to their communities, and to become successful individuals in their communities. These education initiatives go beyond the classroom — these organizations are committed to giving students employable skills through quality education. their hope is that these students learn valuable life skills that will help them get jobs or move onto higher education.
