We believe that each child was created for a purpose, and we want to see children reach their full potential. We want to transform the way society views HIV/AIDS – one community at a time.
In Asia, many orphanages will not accept HIV+ children. Children like Lily. Children and adults living with HIV in Asia have a hard time obtaining an education and a job. These people are considered outcasts. “Lily” in Mandarin is 百合花. A literal translation is “pure and spotless person.” We could not think of a more perfect name for this project.
We have a dream for The Lily Project. We want to see lives transformed in Asia through education, advocacy, foster care, and adoption.
Don’t let HIV/AIDS scare you. Don’t let the lies and fear about HIV direct your life. Educate yourself. These kids can live normal healthy productive lives. These kids just need a chance. They need hope. They need families who are willing to love them every day for the rest of their life.
