Why Orphan Care?

Although family is the ideal solution to the orphan crisis, we understand that it's not an immediate option for most children globally. That's why we believe our place in the ever-evolving landscape of orphan care is to support orphanages and children's homes. We do whatever it takes to rescue struggling homes from failure or destitution, because we know failure isn't an option when the lives of children rest in your hands. We come alongside partner homes with training opportunities to raise their standards of care, because we believe every child has a right to a safe and nurturing childhood. And we provide the means for our orphanages to pursue self-sustainability, because we want more for them than mere survival.

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.

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.

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.
