Join the rescue

Serving Orphans Worldwide rescues, trains & sustains struggling orphanages.

Why Orphanages?

Orphans are the most vulnerable children in the world.

For most of them, a permanent family is not an immediate option. Alone and without care, they are exposed to the worst our world has to offer.

Prominent Issues

These issues have been identified by children who have found refuge in orphanages supported by Serving Orphans Worldwide.


Sex trafficking

Armed Conflict


Child labor



Drug Addiction






Natural Disaster

Death of Guardians

In many areas of the world, orphanages provide the last line of defense against these realities, but most of them are struggling just to survive.

At Serving Orphans Worldwide, we empower caregivers to do their best work.

Through donations, guidance, and expertise, we put them on the path to self-sustainability and empower them to give quality care. We come alongside our homes in three distinct ways.


Empowering struggling orphanages to move beyond mere survival.


Providing the training caregivers, administrators and directors need to excel in their unique context.


Helping orphanages discover new methods of sustainability and free themselves from the dangerous cycle of dependency.

“To me, gospel means dealing with people in his or her totality. Mentally, physically, spiritually, everything. That's gospel.”
