My name is Marcus Lopez, Co Creator of the 15for50 project. There are all kinds of challenges facing people around the world today. Human trafficking, poverty, child slavery, hunger, orphans and many others. We are here to do our part, build an orphanage to house 50 children. This orphanage will provide 3 meals a day, a strong education, clothes, a brand new bed and a brand new life.
We started this project because we have a different view on suffering in our world today. I have seen this suffering first hand while filming in Zambia to bring awareness to the more than 1.1 million orphans in its capital city alone. India is no different. The situation is breath-taking but you and I can make a difference. That's right, we can make a difference in these seemingly overwhelming problems that plague humanity. Instead of looking away or ignoring the problems completely, we choose to face them head on. One person cannot change the world, but if each one of us takes responsibility and does our part we can impact lives all around the world!
We don't build orphanages, but the good news is Angel House does and we love their blanket approach to all aspects of the child's life. With the 15for50 project, Angel House will build an orphanage to house 50 children that will provide 3 meals a day, a strong education, clothes, a brand new bed and a brand new life.
