The youths Stella's Child works with come from extremely poor families. Some are victims of violence or exploitation. Others have only one parent who, in desperation, sends their young child into the labor force to help put food on the table. Some have no family at all and are left alone to fend for themselves. These are intelligent, talented, and capable children who - by mere circumstance of birth - lack life's most fundamental opportunities.
Our interconnected programs are united by the goal of supporting disadvantaged youths to secure gainful employment that will enable them to break their cycle of poverty.
