Willing Hearts Orphanage INC. is a 100% volunteer-based non-profit organization. We are a non-political and non-religious.
Our mission is to work with the under-privileged, the needy, and other marginalized members of society, and where relevant, to assist and guide them towards rehabilitating and reinstating themselves as useful citizen of society.
A major part of our work is to house orphans and provide them with financial aid to enable them to attend public schools in the neighborhood.
