The Friends of Littlefield Home provides transportation to and from hospitals to help those in the surrounding area with HIV/AIDS care and awareness. Janet has brought more than 150 friends to Malawi both to teach them about life in a third world country and also for the visitors to help teach the village. Everyone that goes to Malawi runs different workshops to help teach AIDS awareness, nutrition awareness, reading, health, hygiene, rainforest conservation, and much more. The home also employs patrolmen for the local forests to help prevent poaching, and illegal deforestation.
All of these services are provided through the money that Janet is able to raise, with the help of many that have visited Friends of Littlefield Home. All sorts of charity events are held every year from silent auctions to marathons in Death Valley with all proceeds going directly towards helping these children. Those that take a trip to Friends of Littlefield Home come back with a more open heart and a better understanding and appreciation for human life in general. What is being done at Friends of Littlefield Home is truly changing the lives of countless people. It is the hope that the children educated through the home will be better able to continue on to provide even better lives for their children and teach them to do the same for their children. It is a cycle that must go on and with the continuing help and care of people like Janet Littlefield, it is sure to. This organization needs all the help it can get!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Janet took me and three other students to visit the Littlefield Home between my junior and senior years of high school. It was truly a life changing experience. The little things that we as Americans take for granted are the most cherished things to the children of Malawi. Never did I understand how grateful anyone could be towards a pen or even a piece of bubble gum. This really is a great organization to focus attention towards and help out in any way possible. I cannot praise this organization enough!
