Butterfly Change for Children


Compelled by the love of God we want to bring light where there is darkness, joy where there is sorrow and hope where there is despair.


Love without action brings no change. Therefore we identify the needs of children in the community and find practical solutions to bring positive change.


We believe when you care and bring hope to people in the community, they will be inspired to stand up, use what they have and change their world.
