The Power to Empower.

Helping Children

NPH USA supports Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH, Spanish for "Our Little Brothers and Sisters"), which is fully supporting nearly 3,300 vulnerable boys and girls in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru. An additional 2,800 children who live outside the homes receive scholarships, meals and healthcare. NPH community outreach programs provided over 107,000 services in 2019.


We support NPH through fundraising and volunteer programs. In addition to our national office, we have six regional offices, each working in tandem to build support for our mission.
