HOW it began
Reborn International Outreach Foundation has devoted its efforts to empower and improve the lives of impoverished people through unique entrepreneurial ventures.
Founder, Jimmy Sherlock was inspired to give orphans an opportunity to use their artwork as a means to help themselves. By transferring the orphans' art onto products such as socks, scarves and t-shirts, orphans have an opportunity to not only build their self esteem, but break their chain of poverty. Jimmy states, My vision is that this concept will give orphans the unique opportunity to invest into their own futures."
The orphans' artwork has now given birth to Reborn Orphan Fashion™. Every orphan that participates in the project, regardless of whether or not their art was featured on a product, will receive a scholarship funded by royalties from the sale of the products. When the orphans reach the age of 18, they can apply their scholarship for a college education, learn a trade or start a business. Reborn, along with the Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN), will mentor and assist the orphans so they experience success in their entrepreneurial opportunities, thus breaking the chain of poverty for these impoverished children.
