It isn’t enough to make a claim that we are giving hope to children around the world.  We must be held accountable to do so.  That’s why we wanted to make sure that we provided a space on our site dedicated to telling the many stories of how together we are making a difference.  Below, you’ll read about the lives that have been touched, the children that have been rescued, the trips our board members have made, and ultimately stories about hope being given to children who otherwise might not have any.  This is the proof that your Encompass Nutrients purchase has been put into action, to not only build health, but also give hope!
