Trellis Arch

Organization Description: 

Every child should have access to: NUTRITIOUS FOOD, CLEAN WATER, A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE, and MEDICAL CARE. In many places, all or some of these important aspects of survival are not available. The cycle of poverty continues to oppress millions of children worldwide who lack the things many of us take for granted.

Trellis Arch seeks out communities where resources are lacking in order to address these initial concerns. We develop sustainable infrastructure alongside our local partners to ensure growth is possible, like a trellis does in a garden. Our ultimate goal in every project is to add the most important resource of all: EDUCATION. Worldwide, 775 million adults (approximately 12% of the world?s population) are considered functionally illiterate, with only basic or below-basic literacy levels in their native languages. Upward social movement is nearly impossible. Millions of children lack basic literacy and numeracy skills. Education is the one thing that breaks the cycle of poverty and empowers young boys and girls in remarkable ways. It spans wide spaces, like an arch does, and connects them with every possible opportunity for success. Educated children become adults who can help themselves.

We believe every child has value and purpose; every child has something to offer; and every child can make a difference in the world if given the right resources.

Cultivating opportunity and bridging resources to global needs ? that is what Trellis Arch does.
