About Us

HISTORY

OPEN HEART FOUNDATION WORLDWIDE, INC. is a not for profit, non-stock, non-government organization founded by Robert LeGore, an American barrister who served as a public defender for youth offenders in the USA. He believed that if children and youth were given the opportunities and experiences by which to develop their potentials they become self-directed, responsible, creative and productive members of society. Robert LeGore, together with a Chinese educator and three Filipinos who believed in the inherent worth and dignity of every child established the FOUNDATION for the realization of this vision.
