MasterMind4Kids is dedicated to teaching faith and Universal Laws to orphan & Inner city children under the age of 9 and their caretakers around the world.

Hello! We are on a mission to change the way our orphan & inner city children are taught and raised. We envision confident children growing up in a supportive and nurturing environment which results in a high level of self confidence. The children will turn into powerful adults KNOWING they can achieve whatever they dream of with the support of our organization. The ultimate goal for the kids as they grow up?  Freedom, growth, and joy!

OUR MISSION: MasterMind4Kids is a unique project that teaches inner personal faith, mindfulness & Universal Laws to orphan and inner city children all over the world.

OUR GOAL is to help them regain faith in humanity and stay on a positive path, despite the adversities. Given the chance, we plan on offering children a desperately-needed way out of the cycle of poverty, forever! We will do this by introducing mindfulness into their lives. We are working with The Hawn Foundation and their MindUp framework as the 1st implementation stage. The teachings are grounded in neuroscience, positive psychology, mindful awareness, and social and emotional learning. 

Let’s innovate the way we educate our children. Let’s try something new in the system and turn it upside down for a positive impact. We would love your support on our mission; when crowd funding launches!

This mission will take a village. We are looking for partnerships at all levels as we start to build this project. such as: 

- Mentors
- Consultants (finance & legal)
- Spiritual Leaders
- Teachers
- Artists/Musicians
- Corporate Sponsors
- Donors
- Volunteers
- PR & Media

The 1st fund-raising gala is targeted in Chicago; to be announced.

If you are interested in working with us on some capacity, please email

We thank you for your support and sharing our mission with others.



Blessings! ~Vanessa
