World Villages for Children, a Project of Asian Relief
World Villages for Children provides food, shelter, clothing and education to more than 20,000 children helping them break free from a life of poverty.
World Villages for Children was founded in 1964 by Msgr. Aloysius Schwartz, a missionary priest who devoted his whole life to helping poor children.
Msgr. Schwartz also founded the religious congregation of the Sisters of Mary who manage our Children's Villages in the Philippines, Korea, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and Brazil.
Following Msgr. Schwartz's death in March of 1992, Sister Maria of the Sisters of Mary was named as his successor.
