No Forgotten Kids is the outgrowth of Global Impact Volunteer
Expeditions (GIVE), an organization set up by kids with the help of the Frank
Shooster family dedicated to relief and education missions in the developing
world. GIVE volunteers (aged 9-17), have delivered medical supplies to
Guatemala, school supplies to Peru, and clothing to Haiti.
Each volunteer was tasked in arranging
meetings with government agencies, health providers, village leaders,
journalists, educators, orphanage operators, business leaders and more.
Their success in
coordinating these missions and meeting leaders involved in the fight against
poverty taught them a life lesson bigger than any one mission: you don't need to be an adult to have
gigantic dreams and achieve them.
Just after the 2010
earthquake in Haiti, No Forgotten Kids was formed to focus on just one of the
many challenges of escaping the cycle of extreme poverty discovered by GIVE
Illiteracy is the prison wall that
condemns everyone behind it to a life of hard labor. With labor competition
fierce, it is only by developing marketable skills that children can escape.
