World Villages for Children provides financial support to the charity programmes of the Sisters of Mary. Founded in 1964 by Father Aloysius Schwartz, the charity was established to provide care and support to the thousands of orphans and street children living in poverty in South Korea following the Korean War. The programmes have now been extended to the Philippines, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil and most recently to Honduras.

The Sisters of Mary Children’s Villages are managed by over 200 Sisters who work globally to meet the food, care and education needs of those children living in situations of the most extreme poverty and for whom the chance of an education can transform their prospects, provide a new start and a brighter future.

The children are provided with a fully accredited in-house education programme from primary to high school where they also receive vocational training, participate in sports, artistic activities and activities designed to promote local culture. The children graduate into full time jobs, build careers able to sustain themselves, their families and their local communities.

To date, World Villages for Children has helped over 100,000 children break free from a life of poverty.
