We’re a non-profit organization on a mission to bring improved healthcare to communities in the developing world. Join us.

 

 

Over the past 11 years, our dedicated staff have worked to improve healthcare in developing communities across the globe. We aim to accomplish this goal by providing access to quality healthcare and educating community members on preventative measures. By tailoring our programs to the needs expressed by the families and local leaders, we continue to strive towards positive, sustainable change. 

Thousands of volunteers have joined us in our mission to improve healthcare. Our Volunteer Program allows for members of the global community to contribute their efforts and help drive change. Healthcare professionals, medical students, undergraduates and individuals passionate about giving back have dedicated their time to the children and families that we serve.

"I interacted with patients, took vitals, ran the pharmacy, shadowed the doctor and psychologist, helped with educational outreach projects, and so much more. It was an eye opening experience at a clinic that makes a difference, and I was in the middle of the action."

"The generosity and kindheartedness of the people in Nicaragua was unlike anything I've ever seen before. I learned so much in the 8 days I was there. The best part of the mission was working with the children at school while giving health talks."
Laurel, Nicaragua 2015
"The lessons I learned in Bududa weren’t exclusive to my time in Uganda, but applied to life in general. The experiences and skills I acquired will be applicable to my projects anywhere. "
