BENEFITING: Project Kindle
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for young people infected with or affected by HIV and AIDS. A child's self-acceptance is often made more difficult by the challenges of HIV. Giving young people chances to succeed, learn and grow sends messages that they are in fact special, unique and talented.
Since our establishment in 1998, our main avenue in serving youth, who live in the Heartland, California and the other West Coast states, is through our camping programs. These camps offer many deserving children the opportunity to be encouraged and accepted, build leadership skills, have their character strengths recognized, while creating lasting memories and friendships. Camp Kindle is offered at no cost to the campers or their families (this includes the cost of transportation to and from camp). Everyone who attends Camp Kindle leaves feeling a little more whole, with many new friends and a sense that Camp Kindle is the greatest place on earth.
