Project Angel Food's Divine Design

The Joru Foundation

The Joru Foundation believes that education is the most effective way to equip individuals with the necessary tools they need to reach their highest potential. Their work focuses on a school in the Golok region called Sengdruk Taktse School. Many of these children have lost their parents, or been abandoned by their parents, or were simply too poor to be able to afford an education. Sponsor a child directly through the Joru Foundation, or shop online now and we will donate a portion of your online sales.
