Dear Friends of the Akha children,


Thank you for your incredible presence and care - the initial phase of the Akha Children's Dream Home has been built! The main room and bathroom are complete and already in use. As has been reported by the children when our Founder/Executive Director was there visiting in October, some comments included that they had never lived somewhere where there was enough food, clothing, education supplies, and clean housing. The quotient of difference from where they come from, to where they are now is practically indescribable. Poverty that is beyond our imagination. 

One of the lessons we receive from this community is love. The adults who stepped forward to unconditionally share their home with children they didn't even know, and now live together. And the children themselves from completely different backgrounds now living together, playing together, eating together, helping one another. With generosity at this level, may it open our hearts, just a little bit more, and share in the opportunity to care about and care for one another. Across space, across culture, we know that we all equally have (one) heart. 

As it becomes the end of the year, we request any end of year donations. All tax-deductible, your funds go directly to supporting indigenous children in their basic needs for life. There is a line out the door of children wanting to now live in this home. If you are able to sponsor a child, please let us know. It can be for as little as $80/month.


Blessings and Happy Holidays to you. And Thank You.
