LifeChange International, established in 2001, is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to transform the lives and living conditions of people around the world.
For many years LifeChange has worked in Uganda building schools; supporting Dwelling Places, a children’s home; providing for the education of thousands of children; assisting in community social needs; buying land for farming; establishing youth trade education programs (such as carpentry, tailoring, computer technology) and building dormitories. We are currently looking to raise an additional $25,000 that will house 64 Ugandan teens in our Youth Development Program.
In Mexico, LifeChange has participated in building many homes for people living in appalling conditions in the colonias just outside Juarez. More than once LIfeChange has sent a team that has raised three homes from foundation to completion in one week. At the same time we take food, clothing and medical supplies to encourage and meet the needs of those struggling in the surrounding community.
In the Philippines, ex-Marine Captain Jack Fairweather and his wife Tammy are rescuing children who have been living on the streets in appalling neglect, providing them a wonderful home. Currently 46 children live in three homes, receiving an education, food, a safe home, and medical care. In the coming months we are hoping to raise an additional $25,000 to purchase land and build an additional home for these children.
LifeChange also supports various health projects and education programs in the Middle East, partners with a couple in Hungary who is engaged in marriage and family counseling throughout Europe, and supports a family in Sicily who is reaching out to the many refugees who have migrated across the Mediterranean during the past few years.
We hope you will join us in our endeavors!
