It's important to give. Here's why:

You can help assure that these stories are told

Support is needed to travel the exhibit throughout the 11 provinces of Mozambique, including reaching people in remote locations who might not otherwise be able to see, and possibly be changed by, the youths' work. We also plan on traveling the exhibit in the U.S. and abroad.

You can contribute to meeting the kids' basic needs

A percentage of all photos purchased will be returned to our partner in Mozambique, Reencontro, which provides direct support to the youth in The House is Small but the Welcome is Big.

You can help bring similar projects to other communities

Planning is underway for new projects with youth, both internationally and in California. Your support will make these happen.

It's easy to give. Here's how:

Your gift supports the participation of low–income children in our programs! You can also designate the program(s) that you'd like to support.

When my parents died some neighbors and family abandoned us, although some are still supportive, but it is different than before. Now, my family will say hello in the street, but they will not come into our home. I asked my Uncle, why doesn’t anyone visit us? Why won’t people visit?
