Mission Statement

We are feeding, clothing, healing, and most importantly, educating these street children. Our volunteer-run organization converts laborers into students by providing them a nurturing environment through education, love, and family support. Agenda SOS Int'l Bruce Organization builds shelters for pregnant teen rape victims, works with victims of violence and promotes women's rights. For mothers who do not have a source of income due to the unemployement of their children, we train and partner with them to run their own micro-enterprises.
