Our Mission
The mission of ARCF-Save the Kids community Project is to provide educational opportunity to orphan vulnerable through strengthening families and communities. Our approach addresses the physical, social, emotional and educational needs of children.

Our Method
We address the needs of the children, and simultaneously establish the basics for recovery with support to rehabilitation of the social fabric, and economic initiatives, using the community as the setting.

Our Vision
ARCF, Save the Kids Vision, is helping children see human possibilities for themselves beyond the degradation they experience daily. We strive to alleviate the deep-rooted nature of the problem so that the children can make a difference in their lives and communities. Through education, we envision each child having access to the greater world and the opportunity to participate in it, with their own ideals.

Our strategy

We view schooling as an essential component to the solution of Child labor. ARCF- Save the Kids’ initiative, Education as a Preventive Strategy against Child Labor, promises to alter the present horrific situation of the slave labor of children.

Education can offer an open future, a chance for improved health and safety and, above all, economic opportunity. “Schooling can counter today’s horrendous conditions of domestic servitude, cruel and hazardous labor and outright trafficking by creating alternatives that offer children and their family’s real choices.


Our History
From 2002 on ARCF-Save the Kids has been providing critical assistance to children and families struggling in poverty through many programs aimed at improving their lives, strengthening families through community empowerment, and escaping poverty through education.
