CHANGING a life
We view every life as important. Therefore, we focus on identifying and meeting the individual needs of orphans orphans, underprivileged children, and their families. Through personal relationships, educational programs,food, clothing, and other necessities we bring positive impact to each life.
INFLUENCING a community
We believe that a healthy community creates a safe place where children become filled with purpose and where people are able to rise above their obstacles. We focus our efforts in contributing to the educational development of underprivileged families, with the ultimate goal of creating self-sustainability.
TRANSFORMING a nation
We are dreamers with a vision, who believe in action and commitment. Our goal is to create societal transformation through mindset change that empowers individuals to see themselves as overcomers and problem-solvers. We pioneer new uncharted territories with urgency, tenacity, passion and dedication.
Education is an important tool in reducing the poverty, hopelessness and vulnerability of children and their parents. By offering educational opportunities, we reduce the risk of children being trafficked and exploited, and increase their chance of living with fulfilled dreams.
OUR CURRENT INITIATIVES INCLUDE:
We utilize a Biblically-based curriculum by Metro World Child, out of Brooklyn, NY, as well as our "16 Worlds" curriculum during our outreaches and weekly programs. Our focus is to create a safe environment where children feel loved and are being taught life-skills in interactive and fun ways.
Our implementational organization Metro World Child-Bulgaria was established in 2018, and officially registered in April 2021 as Changing a Generation-Bulgaria. It is solely supported by friends and partners of our umbrella organization, Changing a Generation - USA (established in 1995).
In partnership with Hope for Uganda out of Seattle, WA we provide scholarships for children and young adults who are orphaned or come from extremely poor families.
We have a private school in Lwamasanga where the children live, play, and focus on their studies in a safe environment.

OUR CURRENT INITIATIVES INCLUDE:
By purchasing hand-painted silk scarfs, paintings, hand-made cards, and jewelry from our local partners, we create job opportunities. We sell the items throughout the year during our events (some are available at our online store). Money obtained from the sales go to our non-profit for our weekly visitations and outreaches.
