What we do
We help churches…
who are located in areas with high orphan populations. The church is called by God to care for the orphan, the widow and the alien (the “least of these”). We refer to the many scriptures that both directly and indirectly command the people of God to take up this task as the orphan justice mandate. So the church is the natural place to start when bringing a community based solution to the orphan crisis. The Faith brings commonality through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a comprehensive vision, value system and a accountability structure that when implemented faithfully, transforms a community and provides a sustainable solution to the orphan challenge.
through the local church to provide the actual care to their orphans and vulnerable children. Orphanhood is mostly a symptom of larger societal problems and breakdowns. By equipping the church to share the orphan justice mandate with their community, they are able to develop economically, socially and spiritually. This process is called holistic community development and the process results in the basic needs of the children being met in a sustainable way. The community works in five areas: Business, Education, Family, Health and Spirituality so that the caretakers of the community are trained and empowered to provide care to the children. Leadership structures are established and the community plays a continually increasing role in both the planning and funding of projects. In nations where poverty is not a primary challenge, we also look to raise awareness regarding domestic adoption, challenging the affluent church to ensure that no child is without a loving family.
The orphan and vulnerable child is our entire focus. Both through direct support, such as school funding and rescue projects, and capacity building for caretakers, we work to fulfill God’s call to defend the orphan. It’s our desire to see the eradication of the causes and effects of orphanhood so that every child has a hope and a future. Through a strategic methodology and the mass involvement of the global church, we can.
