Spread Christ’s love through orphan care

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

Every 18 seconds, a child becomes an orphan. Sadly, many of them are forced to the streets and trafficked.  When you give to The Boaz Project, you provide these vulnerable children with everything they need to flourish.

We offer caring people like you effective channels for your donations, skills, and prayers to help these vulnerable children. Together, we can provide our partner orphanages with the humanitarian aid, training, and everyday support these children and their caregivers desperately need.

Assisting Orphans

 

The Boaz Project’s methods of assisting orphans are strategically designed to nurture their attachment to the long-term caregivers in their orphanages and to assure them they are loved by their heavenly Father. Through our house parents and volunteers, we assist orphans by providing ongoing humanitarian aid, job training and tutoring, baby nurturing, Bible Discovery Classes, as well as birthday and Christmas gifts.

Supporting Caregivers

 

We come alongside those God’s called to provide the daily, hands-on care for orphans and assist them through financial support, prayer, encouragement, and training. Our trauma-informed care classes help these caregivers deal with the behaviors and challenges that often come with abuse and neglect.

 Engaging People like you

 

Because we believe every Christ follower is called to serve orphans, we provide a wide array of channels for your finances, prayers, and time to effectively care for orphans. From inviting a speaker to your event to boarding a plane to visit children we serve, there are many ways to get involved.

A Parent’s Love

Noam Saul and I were both in kindergarten, just starting our elementary school careers on September 11, 2001. The difference is that I was at home with my mother in rural Indiana that morning and Noam was at Public School 234 in New York City, less than 500 yards from the World Trade Center.

Bring Joy to an Orphan

This Christmas, let’s assure children like Briton, those who don’t have parents looking out for them, that they are noticed, loved, and valuable—not only to us, but more importantly, to God!

We’d Love to Visit You!

Evans’ mother, a struggling alcoholic, worked as a barmaid and a prostitute before disappearing in January of this year. A neighbor heard Evans crying and broke down the door of the single-room shack he once shared with his mother. He had been locked in the shack for several days with very little food to spare.

Home to Stay

The house parents at Comeback took Chandana in as their own and provided everything she needed, including ample meals, a good education, the assurance that Jesus loves her, and the love of two doting parents. Now, after years of living as family, Comeback cannot imagine living without Chandana. Thanks to you, they don’t have to!

God’s More Than Enough

Have you ever wondered why we’re called The Boaz Project? We’re named after the Biblical character Boaz from the Book of Ruth…

The Joy of the Lord is Our Strength

It was her smile that first drew me to her. I mean, you see that picture. How could it not?
This kid is of a lot of things: smart, determined, funny. But what catches you most is her joy.

Made In His Image

At The Boaz Project, and most importantly as followers of Jesus, we believe that ALL peoples and nations are made in the image of God and have something important and valuable to bring to the table. Our Heavenly Father is the Great Designer, a God who has so lovingly filled the earth with infinite beauties to discover—the most beautiful and most treasured being our fellow humans. Every race and culture reflects facets of who He is, all perfectly created and loved beyond measure.

The Actual Best Place On Earth

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? There are a lot of varied and fascinating places, but I think Mary of Bethany discovered the absolute best place on earth.

Creative Ways to Care for Orphans: A Cheerful Giver

Throughout the Bible, it is abundantly clear that God can and does work in the hearts of all kinds of people to reflect Him to the world. In Jesus’ day, calling fishermen, tax collectors, women, and children to minister alongside Him was radical, yet Jesus longed for His people to understand that everyone who calls on His name has great work to do for the Kingdom.

How to Keep Children in Families

When she learned that 95% of the children living in Russia’s institutions had at least one living parent, Olya knew something had to change.

From Indian Orphan to Beloved Daughter

Shrinidhi is now in a place where she can play freely, sing loudly, and trust that she will be cared for. Most importantly, she is able to hear the truth of the Gospel daily and learn about the God who has never once forgotten her.

God’s Call to Care for Orphans

The reality is that there are still orphans who do not know how loved they are. There are still children living on the streets. There are still infants being discarded in dumpsters.
Christians must join together and fight to change the outcomes for orphans all over the world because God commands us to do so, and ultimately, this is who we are.

Celebrating Mothers of Orphans

When I speak to children about orphans, the challenge is to help them imagine life without a parent… Today, I want you to do the opposite.

Caregiver Spotlight: Joel, Vow Keeper

When Joel was growing up, his parents struggled financially and were unable to pay his school fees. Joel shares that “a good Samaritan” came into his life and supported him through primary and secondary education. He was amazed by this generosity and made a vow to God that he would dedicate his life to supporting needy children in his community.

Using Talents for Orphans

As the Covid pandemic began prohibiting international short-term trips, Alabama resident Amanda Reed began to pray, “What do I do now, Lord?” She considered her love for woodworking and interior design and asked God to let her use her hobbies and talents for God’s kingdom.

The Power of Testimony

One of the most remarkable aspects of the Christian life is being able to witness God working in and through the lives of our fellow believers. Testimonies are so powerful, as they not only motivate us to persevere in our daily lives, but point us back to the Source of all mighty and good works in this life- our one and only Heavenly Father.

Caregiver Spotlight: Morong, No Stranger to Hardship

Morong, one of our Indian house parents, is no stranger to many of the struggles the children in his care have faced in their short lives.

Orphan Care Family Devotional Available Now!

We’re excited to share with you a lesson from “God’s Heart for Orphans: A Devotional for Families,” a new opportunity for families with young children to engage in learning about how YOU can be a part of God’s plan to care for orphans!

Meet Braiton

Braiton is a playful, pleasant 10-year-old boy who calls El Shaddai Children’s Center in Kenya home. He recently celebrated a birthday and we are so thankful that he is living in the care of our Kenyan partners, who are dedicated to seeing him thrive!

Are You Labeled?

We all carry aspects of our identity that are evident to those around us, signifiers of who we are and what we’re about. Some things are within our control, and some are not. For the children our partner homes in India, Russia, and Kenya have brought into their care, the word “orphan” might as well be tattooed across their foreheads.

2020 in Review

The global pandemic meant no short-term trips, fewer and smaller in-person fundraising events, increased financial needs from 13 of our 14 partner homes, and moving our caregiver training for our overseas partners online.

But God.

Meet Mari Muthu and Govindraj

…due to COVID, no one in the village wanted to take them into their own homes. However, the villagers had compassion on the boys and brought them to one of our Indian partner homes.

Meet Illya

Though Illya, his four sisters, and one brother are part of the orphanage system, they are said to bring an atmosphere of joy into what can be a dark environment.

Audacious hope for your new year

For me, New Year’s has never been that significant or exciting, apart from the excuse to eat junk food and spend time with family and friends. I definitely never put much spiritual importance on the holiday. Last year, however, I experienced a different kind of New Year celebration.

The House Where Christians Live

This lavish love became a spectacle of sorts within the community.

How God Changed My Perspective

The fact that Moses was able to be his full self in the environment he is in, in spite of all he has faced, is a reflection of the love and investment of his caregivers, as well as the clear hand of his Heavenly Father in his life.

Make Their Dreams Come True!

Will you make their dreams come true?

Can You Believe This?

Imagine just for a moment that you are an orphan, grieving the loss of your parents, trying to fend for yourself, and feeling abandoned. Now imagine your struggles compounded by the fact that your culture propagates a stigma against you. Many voice—or at least think...

God with Us

May the glorious fact that God is with us be your encouragement and peace this Christmas season and always.

Why Families?

The evidence is overwhelming. Time and time again, science has shown that children were designed to form attachments in a family environment and that those attachments are essential to their social, emotional, and even physical development.

Heaven’s Economy

In the same way that Coronavirus created a different economy in 2020, with toilet paper and bleach surging in value, God’s economy is quite different from our own.

God is Good

Thank you for making all of this possible!

Make an Orphan’s Future Brighter

Today, I’d like to invite you to both assist an orphan AND support a caregiver by contributing to a child’s education. Your donation not only helps break a generational cycle of poverty for the child, but also communicates to his caregivers that we’re in their corner, cheering them on as they care for some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
We’ve made communicating those vital truths pretty easy.

Tell a Child He’s Valued

For children like Samuel, a simple birthday or Christmas present does more than offer him something with which to play. It assures him, “You are special!”

What’s Happening While You Can’t Travel?

More than 99% of the world’s orphans reside outside the U.S. We at The Boaz Project believe the best way to care for them is through Christians in their own communities.

One Simple Way to Love Orphans

Time to Celebrate

Over the last 21 years, God has used your generosity to show Christ’s love to nearly 5,000 orphans. Today, many of those children have become loving mothers and fathers, selfless teachers and government employees, as well as effective pastors and evangelists.

On Behalf of God

As Lydia fed the children, she came to know them, to learn their names and hear their stories. Soon, she saw that many of the children she was feeding had no home and no parents. Troubled, she turned to friends and family for help.

Good News, Times Four!

Just imagine my excitement last Sunday when I woke up to this message from one of our partners in India:
