The Valiant Heart Foundation is a charitable not-for-profit organisation that draws on the will and power of youth to achieve the impossible.
The Valiant Heart Foundation draws inspiration from the French Proverb “à coeur vaillant rien d'impossible” meaning “with a valiant heart, nothing is impossible,” and the World War One hymn “Oh Valiant Hearts,” honouring the valor of those who have fought for freedom and virtue.
The Foundation’s vision is for a society in which all children and youth, no matter their sex, race, religion, socio-economic status or upbringing have the right and access to the necessities of a healthy, peaceful life in which they can thrive and reach their greatest potential, for the betterment of humanity.

and hardship can be addressed
- To facilitate means by which leadership can be nurtured amongst youth, to
