Founded by Father Aloysius Schwartz in the 1960s, World Villages for Children’s mission is to help direct children away from a life of poverty, and they have been doing just that.

Since its inception, World Villages has seen over 150,000 students graduate from their programs and currently has over 20,000 students enrolled worldwide. This is all made possible by the 370 Sisters of Mary, who manage 14 villages in the Philippines, South Korea, Mexico, Guatemala, Brazil, and Honduras.

Today, we highlight World Villages for Children and the Sisters of Mary as they continue to aid and educate destitute children for a brighter future.
