Who We Are
MHGives is a movement of leaders in the manufactured housing industry created to raise awareness and bring lasting change to impoverished children throughout the world. Since providing homes for people is our business, it only seems natural that by working together we help fill this same need in third world countries. A home to these children can have a variety of meanings, but most importantly it is a safe place where every attempt is made to love and care for them. Typical scenarios in third world countries are often a widow living in a shack struggling to feed 5-10 children...or the eldest child in a family trying to provide for his younger siblings with no parent present. There are several ways we can help: establishing group homes, building widow's homes, sponsoring children at a boarding school, or creating micro-businesses within these areas.
What We Do
MHGives brings together the people with business skills and expertise to make a difference in the lives of children around the world. How you ask? We are partnering businesses and orphan care. We will be helping orphanages/schools learn to be self-sustaining by establishing micro businesses and training the students with real job skills with an ability to teach others. This way they won’t have to always be asking for charity. We have partnered with an organization called Lifesong for Orphans, which supports widows, children, schools and orphanages in 9 countries. Lifesong enables 100% of funds donated to go directly to areas of need. For more information in all that they strive to provide throughout the world please see their website: www.LifesongforOrphans.org.
Why We Do It
According to UNICEF there are over 132 million orphans in the world and 17,000 children die every day, mostly from preventable causes. According to UNESCO approximately 61 million school ages children do not attend school. These numbers seem overwhelming, but if we work together we can make a difference!
