One billion people live in poverty. But children in these families live in severe poverty. What if there was a program that significantly improved the health and well-being of these children? What if it was simple, had no cost, and did not require government or private funding? We've done it and it is happening right now What if the mothers and children did this on their own, grouped together to pool their resources, lower their costs, and improve the living standard for their children? What if...

It does your heart good when you see children with happy faces and happy hearts.
Pamela and I picked out clothes and shoes for all of them. "Little Pebbles" is in the white dress standing sideways. These families live on less than $2 a day. One of the women in the rear has 6 children, her husband left 2 years ago, and she has no source of income. The other mothers and children try to help them out. It's not surprising that just one simple can of tuna can really bring tremendous happiness to the...

With a little food and clothes from Costco. These poor little children are happy and ready for a ultra-skill lesson. They are intelligent, quick learning, and appreciative of the opportunity to learn something that they can use every day.

Isla de Ninos is like a  isolated island of impoverished children. It is located in a Shanty Town Slum with 3500 famlies and over 5000 children living in severe poverty. They live  on the sides  of the hills. This community is about  3 miles from the local buses so access to transportion is extremely difficult. Most of the children have never seen a doctor. Like many of the severely impoverished children, most don't have access to school, social services, or children of higher education or econ...

Adults living in poverty are usually set in their  ways, whether it is good or bad. Children, usually younger than age 7, do not have set behaviors. They  can be eagerly taught and trained to  learn many of my program's ultra-skills that can make a significant difference in their health, standard of living, and future.

This sweet little girl  was born  prematurely to a 16 year old alcoholic mother. When she found out that she was blind,she left her with a friend and never came back. Four  of the shanty town women "adopted her" and shared in  caring, nuturing, and raising her. Despite the tremendous challenges, African Lion Pride Mothers stick together to raise, nuture, and train their cubs. We have borrowed this terrific survival arrangement and have very successfully used it here. With a lot of everyone's pr...

Pamela and I are rewarded each day with a happy heart and warm soul by helping these little innocent children. It is extremely rare for a middle or upper class individual to personally  visit such a shanty town slum and see the unbelievable poverty and suffering of other human beings. I've been involved with poor and disabled children in my work in 82 countries over the last 30 years.  After seeing thousands upon thousands of these poor children, I continue to be amazed by their sweet smiling f...

Impoverished women all over the world,living in these shanty towns , have no prenatal care. They deliver their babies at home without any anesthesia  if they have a serious problem with the delivery, they, their baby, or both die. Upwards of 80% of these homes have no father or older son.. Many don't want the responsibility and leave. Many travel to other parts to work and send a little money to these poor families, siblings, and parents. Some just disappear and are never heard from again.
