More About Us With A Hello From Our Founder

Jill Carty, Founder & President of The Julia Project Foundation

I'm Jill Carty, Founder and President of The Julia Project Foundation, our unique children's charity.

My compassion for children was stirred again after being moved by the many needs and obstacles facing young HIV/AIDS orphaned African children I met while visiting Kenya with my husband, Jim, in the winter of 2007.

To meet these needs, after coming home from that first African journey, The Julia Project was born.

Meet Julia

A five year old little package, with a huge heart, Julia instinctively understood the importance of helping those less fortunate as she actively engaged in saving 1,700 pennies to help needy children.
