Mission: Just Projects International’s mission is to facilitate holistic projects that bring global awareness, advocacy and ground-zero initiatives on behalf of children in obscure or neglected scenarios who are at risk of armed conflict, exploitation and trafficking. For years, Just Projects International’s staff has pursued creative ways to reach restricted access areas in SE Asia where other NGOs seldom go.  Through it’s largest initiative: Project:AK-47, JPI has facilitated literacy programs for ethnic groups, developed economic initiatives, opened homes and schools for orphans and gathered a community of national and international leaders focused on children in armed conflict.  The projects have won awards of government recognition for best care practices, facility design and educational development programs.  JPI cares for over 300 children who would otherwise be forced into violence.
Results: Child Rescue Projects: 474 children removed from armies or conflict zones in Sri Lanka, Burma, Thailand, Philippines and Mexico. Many were former child soldiers in local militias, armys, or drug cartels. Social Entrepreneurial Projects: Multiple agriculture and water provision projects for rescued kids, leaders and community. Educational Projects: 4 schools established, leaders equipped, and literacy workers trained.
Target demographics: Asia (Burma, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Philippines) and Latin America (Mexico) with offices in USA, Canada and Australia.
Geographic areas served: Asia and Latin America.

JPI is on the cutting edge of seeking justice for kids who have been made to serve as soldiers. They are working creatively to address the physical, social, mental and spiritual healing for these kids. Their love for the kids that they serve is inspiring, and their bravery and boldness in accomplishing their work is humbling. It is a privilege to be a part of their work.
