Different kinds of children from all over the world. Some are looking in and others are looking out. For many, this is how their lives really are. Their world emcompasses the manner in which they were raised and taught to think; never getting a chance to see life for what it really is and even though it seems like they are looking directly at each other from different parts of the world, this is far from the truth! None of them can see each other and never will! So the lives and dreams of these children are going unnoticed. Therefore, this project, Y.O.E.L.I.F.E. is an important endeavor to change this way of thinking and to enlighten the public so that we do notice and we do help our struggling youth. It is also important for privileged youth to reach out and help these children and youth, to make the connection.
