Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos™ International is a Christian mission that strives to provide a permanent family and home for orphaned, abandoned and other at-risk children who live in conditions of extreme poverty. Our programs provide quality education, health care and spiritual formation with the goal of raising good Christians and productive members of their respective societies.
Since 1954, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos™ (NPH) has cared for thousands of orphaned and abandoned children. The first home opened in Mexico, later followed by homes in Honduras, Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic, Peru and Bolivia. To date, over 17,600 children have been cared for by this unique and loving family.
Through the generosity of a worldwide network of support organizations, the children are provided with food, clothing, shelter, medical care and an education. "An education," states founder Fr. William B. Wasson, "will take my children out of the poverty into which they were born." Children of all ages are embraced by this loving family, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos™, which in English means "Our Little Brothers and Sisters." Some have been abandoned. Others have lost one or both parents and have no one to care for them. Many have physical and emotional scars that eventually heal as they begin to trust their new family.Through the principles of love, security, sharing, work and responsibility, the children begin to thrive. A careful balance of these five principles helps the children succeed and live in harmony.
