Their story

THE NUMBER OF ORPHANS IN THE WORLD CONTINUES TO GROW WITH EACH PASSING DAY.

These children are without parents, without relatives, without mentors. Their names will go unspoken by anyone who truly cares, for the majority of their lives.

Without our help, these children are raised in less than ideal circumstances. They are victims of a system instead of beneficiaries of love and support that comes from having parents and a family. If they’re lucky enough to stay out of trouble, most of these children will “age out” of the system by the time they turn 16. They are shoved into the world with no skills, no plan, and no future.

The Road Ahead Foundation wants to change this.

We create awareness of the orphan pandemic by hosting fundraising events and work to do our part to help these children in any way we can. But we are only able to do so much. We need your help.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
