"Your children are not your children.
They are sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you.
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you."

- Kahlil Gibran

It's not every day that you wake up and want to change the world.

When that happens, you had better listen. Plaeides was born of one such moment of inspiration. A moment of inspiration that is really the sum total of the many years of learning, observation and reflection leading up to that moment.

Plaeides was formed with the lofty imperative to do work that will positively impact the life of children around the world. We believe that everything, but everything, flows from our idea of who we are and what we are here for. So before we even got started, we first articulated our vision and mission statements. This is what we believe in. This is what we are here for.


To be society’s voice of conscience speaking on behalf of women and children.


  • To preserve childhood for children.
  • To foster healthy physical, mental and emotional child development.
  • To help build the world of our future, one child at a time.
