All Hearts Foundation Inc. was created with the mission of providing a family, cultural, and educational environment for orphan girls as a means of their empowerment and increase of self-esteem through the acquirement of special skills (i.e. forensic sciences, nursing, foreign languages). Starting with the first grade through the twelfth grade, these skills will increase their ability to find stable, well-paid jobs and/or start their own business at 18 years of age.
The purpose of our organization is to help the children who grow up in foster care and are aging out of the system without having the skills required to find stable well paid jobs and consequently, secure affordable housing. As a consequence of such a situation, an important number of these children become homeless, are incarcerated, abuse drugs, or become pregnant.
With this in mind, All Hearts Foundation, Inc. has planned to develop a campus that will start with a 12-grade boarding preparatory school (Advance Placement Program Courses). This school with this “special” curriculum is the solution we found on solving a complex social challenge each community is faced with. Through our main mission, our foundation: 1)Will prevent the increase of criminality, homelessness, and unplanned pregnancy by offering a diverse apprentice training program through its school; 2) Will prepare orphan girls to become the very nucleus of a family (see the quote below); 3) Will educate orphan girls in the spirit of community volunteering and compassionate strength as a means to give back to the society and in particular, to the community they belong to the same values that were used to educate them; 4) Will not subject girls to an avalanche of pressures to become adults before they are ready to do so. This is the ray of light which will shine over our school and children.
This is the ray of light which will make a positive difference in the lives of our orphans who are nothing else but children who have to become mature at a too early age because they had to learn to manage their lives at such an early age without the help of their parents. And this is tough when one is only a child in a foster care! It is all about hope and the sense of having a purpose in life. All we want to do is to help these children to see and follow this ray of light. And that is why our motto is: “Our hearts, their future…their hearts, our future.”
"Investing in the education of girls has a high pay off," says Christopher Colclough, the director of the Global Monitoring Report. "Education helps to increase (women's) productivity to a significant extent, thereby adding to household incomes and reducing poverty. It also increases personal and social well-being. When parents, in particular mothers, are educated, their children – both boys and girls – will be healthier, better nourished and have a greater chance of going to school and doing well there. Investing in educating girls now is one of the best ways of ensuring that future generations will be educated." - (GIRLS CONTINUE TO FACE SHARP DISCRIMINATION - United Nations Literacy Decade 2003-2012).
