Protecting and saving lives

We protect children. We protect mothers. We protect communities. Our work ripples to fight malnutrition, violence, slavery, and curable diseases. The CHILDREN OF THE BORDER (CotB) project helps communities by providing them with free contraceptives, food, medicines and medical care, building latrines, and rebuilding schools where children can go. Join us in the good fight.
