Our Story

 

LifeChange International, established in 2001, is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to transform the lives and living conditions of people around the world.

For many years LifeChange has worked in Uganda through its two partners there: Dwelling Places and Michael's Kids. Hundreds of children have received food and housing, thousands have been educated, a community has been transformed, land has been farmed, and a youth trade education program (including carpentry, tailoring, and computer technology) has been established. 

In Mexico, LifeChange has participated in building homes for people living in appalling conditions in the colonias just outside Juarez. More than once LifeChange has raised three homes from foundation to completion in a week. At the same time we take food, clothing and medical supplies to encourage those struggling in the surrounding community.

 

In the Philippines, ex-Marine Captain Jack Fairweather and his wife Tammy are rescuing children who have been living on the streets in appalling neglect, providing them a wonderful home. Currently 36 children live in three homes, receiving education, food, and medical care. 

In Sicily, LifeChange has a team working with needy refugees who have fled to Italy from countries in Africa and the Middle East, helping them adjust to their new life in Europe by providing practical assistance. 

LifeChange also supports various health projects and education programs in the Middle East and partners with a couple in Hungary who is engaged in marriage and family counseling throughout Europe and beyond.

We hope you will join us in our endeavors!
