About Us

Our Mission
NPH USA, formerly Friends of the Orphans, transforms the lives of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children with homes, healthcare and educational programs, making a positive impact in Latin America and the Caribbean.

We support Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters"), which is currently raising more than 3,400 boys and girls in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. An additional 1,600 students who live outside the homes receive scholarships, meals and health care. NPH outreach programs served thousands of people each year.
What We Aspire to:
  • Creating families for life through values of unconditional love, shared responsibility and helping others.
  • Enabling children to grow into caring and productive members of their communities – to multiply the change that you, as supporters, are helping to make.
  • Enhancing our supporter’s lives by helping them make a difference in the lives of our children.
What Makes Us Unique
  • Our children receive direct physical, emotional and spiritual support on a long-term basis.
  • Our children are not available for adoption – they find security and a sense of belonging as they are being welcomed into a family for life.
  • Our children have daily chores, such as dusting, mopping, cooking or farming. This teaches them responsibility and they find pride in helping their family in this way.
  • Our children are given a quality education and have the opportunity to pursue a trade or university degree.
  • Our children give back a year or more of service to their brothers and sisters, to share the responsibility of raising the family.
  • Our donors have the opportunity to visit our homes and meet the children whose lives they are helping to transform.
Our Organization
