CHANGING A LIFE
We view every life as important. Therefore, we focus on identifying and meeting the individual needs of orphans, underprivileged children, and their families. Through personal relationships, educational programs, food, clothing, and other necessities we bring positive impact to each life.
INFLUENCING A COMMUNITY
We believe that a healthy community creates a safe place where children become filled with purpose and where people are able to rise above their obstacles.
We focus our efforts in contributing to the educational development of underprivileged families, with the ultimate goal of creating self-sustainability.
TRANSFORMING A NATION
We are dreamers with a vision, who believe in action and commitment. Our goal is to create societal transforma- tion through mindset change that empowers individuals to see them-selves as overcomers and problem-solvers. We pioneer new uncharted territories with urgency, tenacity, passion and dedication.
WE BELIEVE IN THE PURSUIT OF A NOBLE CAUSE WITH THE RIGHT SPIRIT OF INTENT, WHICH GIVES US THE RIGHT TO GO AND TO DO GOOD TO ALL PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONS.
ADOPT A NEIGHBORHOOD BULGARIA
Adopt a Neighborhood Bulgaria Campaign was started in 2018, shortly after we opened Metro World Child - Bulgaria, an organization dedicated to implementing our programs among children and youth.
We work with four local partnering churches and non-profits in the regions of Sofia, Veliko Turnovo, Ruse and Burgas. We have about 100 volunteers who work weekly in establishing relationships and conducting educational outreaches in 20 neighborhoods within these regions.
We offer individuals, churches and business companies the opportunity to partner with us in practical ways as we meet the needs of the people living in some of the most deprived areas of Bulgaria.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:
Become a monthly sponsor
Raise funds or come and build with us
Remodeling eight kindergartens within these neighborhoods (fresh paint, carpet, roofing, furniture and new toys for the kids)
Building ten playgrounds
Providing PJ's and shoes for children
Education is an important tool in reducing the poverty, hopelessness and vulnerability of children and their parents. By offering educational opportunities, we reduce the risk of children being trafficked and exploited, and increase their chance of living with fulfilled dreams.
OUR CURRENT INITIATIVES INCLUDE:
In partnership with Metro World Child out of Brooklyn, NY, we utilize their Biblically-based curriculum during our outreaches and Side-Walk Sunday School programs. Our focus is to create a safe environment where children feel loved and are being taught life-skills in interactive and fun ways.
In partnership with Harvest Home Ministries out of Winthrop, WA we provide scholarships for children and young adults who are orphaned or come from extremely poor families.
We have a private base where the children live, play safely, and focus on their studies.
Meeting both the spiritual and physical needs of children and families we work with in Bulgaria, Ghana and Uganda.
Providing the basic needs integral to a child's growth and development: school supplies and uniforms, shoes, clean drinking water, food, and warm clothing
in the winter.
OUR HUMANITARIAN PROJECTS INCLUDE:
Back to School Campaign (providing school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, bus passes)
Christmas Presents Campaign (providing a Christmas present for each child in our programs)
Summer Camp Campaign (taking the children and young adults to a 7-day camp)
Warm Hands & Feet (providing winter coast, boots, gloves, hats and scarfs)
Mosquito nets for our African students
After-school feeding programs throughout the year for our sponsored children in Bulgaria
Food coupons and bus passes for orphans and children who attend our programs
We believe in restoring people's dignity by empowering them to become self-sufficient. This in turn produces change in their society as a whole.
OUR CURRENT INITIATIVES INCLUDE:
By purchasing hand-painted silk scarfs, paintings, hand-made cards, and jewelry from our local partners, we create job opportunities. We sell the items throughout the year during our events (some are available at our online store). Money obtained from the sales go to our non-profit for our weekly visitations and outreaches.
By using their creativity and skills, women are creating beautiful jewelry that we purchase from them and sell to raise funds for educational scholarships. The money goes back into the country through the monthly children sponsorships. This allows our local friends to participate in giving back to their nation.
100% of designated donations go directly to the initiatives and/or child sponsorship programs.
