Our mission is to create lasting positive change in the lives of young people everywhere so that these teenagers may reach their fullest potential.
BEAUTY WITHIN – TEEN ESTEEM, INC Beauty Within- Teen Esteem, Inc. is not yet a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. We offer relief and assistance to deserving teenagers across the globe. Founded on June 1, 2010, by Eric Devezin, the Foundation delivers assistance in the areas of Education, Healthcare and Social Development. All of the Foundation’s efforts are geared to resolving the ongoing struggles that teens face every day – poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease – and to replace these struggles with hope for the future. The projects that Beauty Within- Teen Esteem, Inc. fund and facilitate are developed so that each teen who benefits is able to reach their fullest potential for personal growth, and to realize their dreams in a healthy environment. To the extent that a child’s social needs are met, that child is likely to develop into a healthy, confident, responsible, productive, competent, independent and self-controlled adult. Philosophy Focusing on young children is by far the most brilliant investment that anyone could ever make in the future. Beauty Within – Teen Esteem, Inc. was founded on the premise that the lives of all teens have equal value. An impoverished child in Haiti or a homeless child in the parish of St. Ann, Jamaica is just as precious as the children in the United States of America and other developed countries. The Foundation’s goal is to ensure that all children have the opportunity to lead a healthy, productive life.
