of orphans do not have any hope of adoption
When you partner with one of our children’s homes rather than sponsoring a child, you:
- Reduce the likelihood of hazing between children
- Foster the vital attachment between orphans and their long-term caregivers
- Offer the community dignity, not handouts
You’ll also get to know the children and their caregivers through regular updates and even have the option of visiting them in-person.
With 23 years of experience and a network of like-minded people around the globe, The Boaz Project can help you show Christ’s love to orphans. Join us by:
Learning: From books and a blog to a five-level course, we’ve got the resources you’re looking for! Discover a treasure trove of information about the orphan crisis and The Boaz Project here.
Giving: When you donate to support one of our partner homes, you provide necessities like clothing, food and education for orphans as well as training and accountability for their caregivers.
Serving: Whether you’d prefer stuffing envelopes, praying at home, or hopping on a plane to visit the children in our partner homes, you can find ways to help orphans here.
Of orphans are outside of the us
Every 18 seconds, a child becomes an orphan. Sadly, many are forced to the streets and trafficked. You can offer these children a loving home! When you give to The Boaz Project, you can be confident your gift is being used in ways that are:
Effective: Because we’ve been caring for orphans since 1999, we’ve learned what it takes to improve the lives of abandoned children. We’ve watched the youth in our partner homes grow into mothers and fathers, teachers and bankers, pastors and engineers.
Culturally-sensitive: To best meet orphans’ needs, we partner with loving caregivers from their own communities who look like them, speak their language, and know their traditions. It is a blessing to support their call to care for the fatherless.
Trauma-informed: Each of our strategies is designed to support the bond between an orphan and his loving, consistent caregiver. This includes the ways funds are channeled, how we structure short-term teams, and the training we offer house parents.

The Boaz Project’s approach targets deeper matters, attempting to give a child the opportunity to form a healthy attachment and helping caregivers truly understand trauma.
