La Comunidad de Ninos Sagrada Familia (Peru)

Miguel Rodriguez continues to love and care for over 1000 children at La Comunidad with hot meals. For many students, this is the most nutritious meal they get all day. After Tom Nazario (pictured) visited the community and helped serve meals to the hungry kids, we appreciated how much this one meal means and how it helps keeps them healthy and alert in school. TFI has funded a food supplement program every month in 2018, thanks to your donations.
Cambodian Community Dream Organization (Cambodia)

This is such a special story of young people in the US helping their counterparts a world away. The Atlas Club, a student-led club at Riverside High School in Greer, South Carolina, has been working with TFI for years supporting projects around the world. In 2018, they made the CCDO in Cambodia their focus. The students worked hard to raise money for these deserving young people, and TFI agreed to match their gift!
The students made several needed gifts to the school, and they also donated 100 bicycles to students who live in the outer villages of Siem Reap and have no other way of getting to school.
A group of Atlas students traveled to Cambodia last summer to hand off the bikes personally and get to know the students. It was a life-changing experience for all. An armful of thanks to the CCDO for welcoming our US students.

St. Vincent’s Children of Kibera (Kenya)
St. Vincent’s is a safe place for these little ones and now they
will get getting an additional resource to help them thrive.
Thanks to your donations, TFI was able to make a grant in 2018 to St. Vincent’s Childre of Kibera, a day school in Nairobi, to hire a much-needed social worker to come to the school and work with the children and their families.
The social worker will also help train the teachers and staff to look for signs that children may be struggling with trauma that comes with growing up in extreme poverty.
