Education is defined as an act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, and physical ability of an individual. This process is how a person transmits knowledge, skills, and values to develop his/her potential. It is acquiring personal capabilities and learning what interests you. If a child is not given the opportunity to develop their abilities and self-worth, they will face many unnecessary obstacles and challenges in life.
The L.I.F.E. Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children in the St. Louis area. Currently over 130,000 children are living in abused, neglected, or impoverished situations. Instead of exploring their childhood, interests, and goals, they are fighting for survival. To them, education is more of a reward then a necessity. We recognize the importance of a quality education and believe it is every child's right.
Help give them the power to choose their future.
