Supporting LettuceBee Kids in 2019



According to UNICEF, there are more than 30 million street children in Asia. Surviving by sorting through trash at unhygienic dump sites and begging for money, these children--as young as three years old--are among the most vulnerable, neglected, and exploited.

LettuceBee Kids  (LBK) is working to develop a sustainable and scalable model for the education, care, and social integration of street children. They focus on four core values to prepare our children for regular schools and society: music, arts, farming, and family to help them build self-respect and confidence.  Since its founding, LBK has focused on a dignity centered approach, successfully generating market demand for the goods produced, while also contributing to a shift in cultural consciousness.  

With the help of our community, they have come a long way. However, in order to grow, build infrastructure and include more children, LettuceBee Kids is  seeking your support!
