The Prim & Prosper, Inc. organization has a big heart for developing young women. Volunteering with Prim & Prosper for their Ronald McDonald House outreach program is where I was really able to see their heart. The toys that were purchased were for the young girls enjoyment, but also to teach them how an entrepreneurial mindset starts – using what you have and turning it into something more!

Volunteering with Prim & Prosper at Life Home Project Foundation (LHPF) in Phucket, Thailand was such a eye-opening and meaningful experience! The visit to LHPF was well coordinated and I can’t wait to join the next community outreach!

Thank you to the Prim & Prosper, Inc. from Foundation Foyer Marie Orphanage. We are grateful that they were able to visit and give so much love and care to the children. The children were thrilled with the gifts and donations. They loved having the opportunity to play some soccer! Our doors are always open to you at any time and welcome to the Foyer Marie family!!!
