Casa de Kids’ founders have been helping to change the world by assisting some of those who are most in need. We are caring for orphaned children who first need food and shelter, and then an education to help break the cycles of poverty.
The State of Oaxaca, Mexico, is one of the country’s most impoverished states. This is where we partner with local grass roots organizations and orphanages. We help street kids become model students and orphans become college graduates. In eight years, CdK co-founder and president, Drew Vogt, has delivered over 1,000 articles of clothes, personal hygiene necessities, and school supplies to these children in need. His work has benefited students who have received a cumulative 30 years of education. We also fund school books, uniforms, and tuition.
Literacy & Hope We know our work is succeeding because most of our students have surpassed the educational levels of their families. While some were abandoned, others were given up by relatives who could not feed them or offer hope for the future. However, education is readily available for those we assist with a safe place to live and educational assistance.
If every child received an education 171 million people would be lifted out of poverty.
