It is our desire to not only provide immediate aid but to also introduce new experiences and ideas to children so that they may improve their communities

 

We invite them form their own dreams and inspire others

OUR PRIMARY EFFORTS REVOLVE AROUND

Education

Education is critical to reducing poverty and inequality

Aid

Aid helps equip future ambassadors of change

EXPOSURE

Exposure introduces new positive thoughts, behaviors and experiences that allow for inspiration and growth

The process of change stems from Aid, Education and Exposure

Luz uses 3 principles to promote growth and change

The goal is less about helping one child at a time and more about encouraging the development of entire communities; our focus is to relieve, decrease and eventually eliminate the conditions that are leading to child poverty. Addressing the underlying causes and providing aid now will prevent these problems in the future.

Life skills are important tools and many people do not have anyone to teach them. This leads to cyclic behavior and more problems for generations to come.

We are all connected and interdependent. Your actions encourage new thoughts in the hearts and minds of those around you.

Exposure

Exposure introduces new positive thoughts, behaviors and experiences that allow for growth and opportunity. Some of the ways Luz exposes children to the possibilities of brighter futures are:

  • Field trips including but not limited to museums and parks
  • Giving back to their communities – Every recipient of aid from Luz is automatically a Luz volunteer and provided with volunteer opportunities
  • Career days – This gives the children the opportunity to learn about different careers and vocations so that they are aware of the possibilities available.
  • Films that encourage ethics, culture and diversity
  • Hobby/skill days -Classes that introductory classes in self defense, music, art, trade, commerce, college application, etc.

We want to ensure that they are aware of all the opportunities that are out there. Orphaned children typically do not have the opportunity to be taught life skills. The question arises: what happens when the child is of age that they have to leave to orphanage? Most have nowhere to go, means to live or the skills to help them survive and thrive.

We want to equip people that will be the change in their communities.

Education

Education is essential to reducing poverty and inequality. Through the learning process, knowledge, sets of skills and awareness can be obtained and later taught to create lasting change within a community. The Luz Foundation provides the following opportunities for children to receive an education:

  • opportunity and necessities needed to go to school
  • health and nutrition
  • preventive medicine awareness on how to stay healthy
  • recycling
  • environmental responsibility and awareness
  • how to protect themselves and be aware of child exploitation, abuse and neglect
Aid

Aid that promotes aid is our highest valued belief. Luz strives to provide immediate aid in the form of goods to alleviate unhealthy conditions.

All recipients of aid from Luz also contribute as volunteers. Luz encourages and teaches those we aid to be self-sufficient and contribute to their surroundings in a positive manner.

Aid that promotes sharing, teaching and learning can be sustained and passed on to others.

  • basic child rights of food, water, shelter, safety, and the opportunity to go to school
  • aid that encourages the receiver to aid others throughout their life
  • aid and exposure also includes affection, positive encouragement, and affirmation while teaching kids to be kind to others

We can’t do this without your help
