“I create a world of authentic opportunity by my inspiring leadership. ”

Around 2008, Jean-François and his wife decided to become a foster family for abandoned kids. They adopted two children –  a 6 year old, and a few years later, an 18 month old. Not being enough, they continue to act as a foster family for teenagers in difficulty. This may be for long or short term period, depending on each child’s situation. Giving these kids a safe and loving environment and a family structure will help to show these kids what a healthy family can be. In the long term, these kids will be able to choose a different model of being an adult.
