Care For Life's focus on teaching, training, and supporting vulnerable children and families so that they can quickly and effectively support themselves not positively effects lives now, but also for many years to come. Care for Life helps families by teaching them the skills needed and giving them the opportunities for growth and stability whether it is regarding shelter, employment, or food and sanitation. I volunteered in Mozambique one summer and helped as rebuild houses and huts for vulnerable families who had been selected by the organization. The most memorable family was just two young brothers, both parents had died of AIDS. They were too young when their parents had died to learn how to manage a home. Our work helped establish them in the community and gave them skills to keep their living space sanitary and safe. Care For Life not only helped pay for their new house that as volunteers we built, but they followed the two boys and helped teach and train them along the way to ensure they had what they needed to keep moving forward. The organization's use of monetary and volunteer resources is incredible, with little to no slack or waste.
