Project Life is a program that works to rebuild children’s lives ...

Every new conflict and natural disaster around the world creates thousands of innocent victims. Children suffer the worst effects of disaster and human conflict through:

  • Loss of family
  • Homelessness or displacement
  • Poor nutrition and lack of medical care
  • Psychological trauma
  • Loss of childhood.

Project Life is an intensive, volunteer-based program that works to restore the lost childhood of innocent victims of war and natural disaster. Our program brings world orphans for a three month respite in the peaceful countryside of Western New York State.

You can read and learn more about Project Life through our blog:



These children, ages 9-12, are welcomed into the homes of local families and benefit from a therapeutic program of education and recreational activities. They make new friends, build their health and learn new skills. They get a chance to just be kids again, free from anxiety and insecurity.

Following their rehabilitation, orphans return to their home countries with new strength, new skills, greater confidence, and a special kind of hope that comes from knowing they have friends who care deeply about them. Project Life volunteers maintain long-term contact with the orphans and their extended families.

Project Life does not permanently place children in the United States. The orphans selected for the program are not seeking long-term foster care or adoption.
