MCF’S Unique Model

Planting seeds of lasting, organic change in mountain communities by engaging and empowering children to lead the way.

Our Mission

To empower children through knowledge, training, and the power of collective action to change their communities from the ground up.

The idealism and energy of youth is the best antidote to the forces of marginalization, corruption, helplessness, and apathy under which most rural communities struggle to. We tap that energy to help young people create a better world for themselves and all around them. It is nothing less than a revolution in how the people—especially the young people—of the mountains perceive themselves and how they address problems in their communities.
