We believe that Jesus is God and that He is the most important protective factor that leads to resiliency
in the lives of children. We also believe that morally sound community-based organizations exist to enhance
the well-being of children.

Dedication of a Dream Come True
Ten years ago, I had a dream. Now, it is a reality that requires all of my being, not to mention Joanna's focus as
well. Believe me, all this work is harder than it looks, but it is worth every minute we spend building it. Also,
financially it has been tough. We have seen our numbers decline somewhat; however, for those of you who have been
faithful, I trust you are receiving an abundant return on your investment. Please continue to ask God's blessings as
we know that every gift comes from above. Always remember that no gift is too small. - Gazi Abantwana Izinyawo - Bob.
