Our Mission

JBFC believes no child should have to grow up in extreme poverty. That’s why we take a holistic approach to change in East Africa by providing refuge for abused and abandoned girls, quality primary and secondary education, access to rural healthcare, and economic opportunity through agriculture. Thank you for visiting our site. Please consider joining our fight to end poverty. For more information on our 2015 Campus Wish List, click here. With your help we can change the world, one child at a time.
