One of the best things about our Believe In Me orphanage schools is seeing students who may not otherwise have a chance of attending school begin to blossom and grow in the classroom setting.

Since the early days of his life, Aaron has been in LWB care. Aaron’s life has been touched by a broad range of LWB programs — Medical, Healing Homes, Nutrition, Education, Foster Care and Advocacy — each one working together to benefit one special little boy.
