We want to instill in each one of them kindness, love, happiness, and support for each other. You can see that they're playing in groups here, they have their friends, they know each other. And, perhaps those are things that in the places they come from are not possible due to violence, gangs, and those demands placed on childhood in places that are dangerous. What we're doing here is creating a world where they feel safe and can simply be children."
