Vision and Values
Our vision for every child, life in all its fullness,
Our prayer for every heart, the will to make it so.
We work toward a world where every child experiences life in all its fullness. Where they are protected,
cared for and given the opportunities to become all God meant them to be.
Where they grow strong in communities free of need and full of promise.
Where families are valued, the environment preserved and the most vulnerable live in security and confidence.
Where they become responsible citizens of well led nations.
Where peace and justice reign and all have the right to contribute.
Where they flourish in a world where the treasure of our hearts and
the measure of our wealth is the happiness and well being of all children.
