Each year, thousands of orphans in Korea and China are being aged-out of orphanages when they turn 18 years old. They can no longer stay in their respective orphanages, and they are on their own. From the dependent lifestyle they were used to all their lives, they are forced out into the world with little education and little training and preparation to survive. Often the consequences are severe with many of them not able to go to colleges, they become homeless, turning to crime and prostitution. If they are lucky they may hold low paying jobs that will pay enough to survive, but still struggle immensely for life. Often these orphans in turn become unwed mothers and fathers that will not be able to raise their children, and these children will wind up in orphanages...and the Cycle Repeats!
Our 3rd Annual MPAK Fundraising Gala is to raise funds to help as many aged-out orphans possible by providing education scholarships to those that want to pursue further education, assist those that need temporary housing until job placements, provide counseling to help with adjustment to their real world living needs. We want to help the aged-out orphans to Break the Cycle by helping them to stand in the world.
