NAFE-US aims to provide support, health, education and self-sustainability to youth around the world, while offering our volunteers intercultural and educational opportunities to serve youth today and gain a broader world perspective. This aids in developing a lifelong appreciation for humanitarian service and allows young people to experience mentoring, positivity, safety and respect. We value the rich diversity of cultures, traditions, socio-economic status, and life-styles. Our projects will build on respect for the youth, local customs, social-norms, cultures and traditions. NAFE-US also has a secondary mission; We aim to provide an umbrella for projects that may not have the ability to become a 501(c)(3) and meet our primary mission criteria.
