Spread Christ’s love through orphan care

Find your place in orphan care and change a child’s life forever.

The global orphan crisis involving over 140 million children is a daunting challenge.

We help caring people like you obey Christ’s command to care for orphans by providing effective channels for your financial donations, skills, and prayers. Together, we can provide our partner orphanages with the resources, training, and everyday support these children and their caregivers desperately need.

Equipping Leaders


You enable us to identify and train local believers as teachers, caretakers, and baby nurturers. By equipping and empowering leaders to care for orphans in their own communities, you are helping breakdown the stereotypes that plague orphans.


Trips to Visit Orphans


You have the opportunity to compliment the work of our local volunteers, teachers, and house parents. All of our trips come with a crash course in the culutre you’ll be serving in, a full curriculum and itinerary, and of course tons of time with the children!  We know you will make an impact in the lives of countless orphans and we’re sure a trip with us will change your life, too!

Holistic Orphan Care


Together with your help we can meet the physical, spiritual, educational, and emotional needs of orphans in Russia, India, and Kenya. From birthday gifts to training house parents, every aspect of ministry has a special purpose. You can make an impact in the life of an orphan by making a donation, coming to an event or joining us on a trip.
