Developing Future Leaders

Imagine ...pulling out your child from school just because you are unable to find a job that pays enough to support your family. 

Imagine ...entire generations of your family being born into illiteracy, with little to no hope of breaking free.

 That is why Papiyon is dedicated to teaching our underprivileged students how to recognize a chance and seize it by increasing expectations, teaching life skills and holding our students accountable for their choices, not necessarily their circumstances.

There are many children in need. You too can have a meaningful impact on someone’s life. By adopting a Papiyon (Butterfly) through our Papiyon’s Adopt a Papiyon (Butterfly) program, you can change a life!  At Papiyon, we believe that an education will help break the cycle of poverty and enables them to provide a better life for their families and future children. We further believe that God has created each of us and in His plan; we have all been created with a purpose.

Educated boys and girls grow up to be empowered men and women and can influence the communities they live in, for good. Papiyon Inc. underscores the fact that helping is not simply a matter of dispersing money but of making a deep, long-term commitment and casting a hard eye on results

Want to help make a child’s dream a reality? Please consider adopting a Papiyon (Butterfly) our focus is on meeting the needs of children – making sure kids receive an education is more important to Papiyon than any recognition.

Papiyon Inc. is a nonprofit organization, which is committed to providing basic education and life skills to underprivileged children.

We believe that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there's no better place to start than in the corridors of education.

PAPIYON provides educational expenses for students in the program, art instruction, tutoring, Music, Dance, workshops and more. PAPIYON is not a temporary response to an unconquerable problem – we are a dynamic solution. Rather than hand out a temporary fix, we focus on empowering our students with the tools to create their own reality and decide the course of their lives. Armed with autonomy, voice, and education, our students are shaping their own narratives.
