Read Elijah's Story

Elijah, a boy who loves soccer and singing is one of six children. One day, while preparing dinner Elijah’s mother added poison to the food, in hopes of killing her children and relieving herself of all responsibilities. Shortly after, she left to join a cult. Elijah, his two brothers and three sisters were left in the care of their father.

Uneducated, Elijah’s father is unemployed has to rely heavily on his neighbors for food, clothing and other necessities. He lacks the means and motivation to care for his children.

As a friend of The Boaz Project, you know that Elijah’s story is unfortunately not a unique one. The lack of education greatly affects the orphan and vulnerable child and increases the chances of a child being sold into slavery. It is said that: “a child whose mother can read is 50% more likely to survive past the age of five.”

As the year comes to an end, we are working toward the goal of providing an education for each child in our Indian and Kenyan homes. I am writing to ask you to join me in this large, but important task because by providing a child with an education we are breaking the generational cycle.

Elijah, now settled into El Shaddai’s Children’s home, studies in Manguo primary school. With an education, Elijah will no longer look to his future and see one of total dependence on others, but of freedom and independence to achieve his dreams.

Will you join me this year in impacting an orphan’s future and making their dreams come true with the gift of education?

The average cost of educating an Indian or Kenyan child for one year is $570, but it can change their life and even the trajectory of their families forever.

Elijah and many children like him are beyond grateful for anything that gives them hope and a chance for a better life. These children put in the hard work and overcome obstacles every day to better their futures. They just need some support from you and me to make it possible.

See the progress above toward our goal of sending 113 children to school.

So please demonstrate kindness to orphans once again by making a generous donation today. They’re ready—eager, even—to do the hard work. They just need your helping hand. You can help orphans reach their dreams of an education by making a donation above.

Thank you for demonstrating your compassion in such a tangible way!

Read Abigail's Story

Abigail held her textbook in her slender hands, stroking the spine. She smiled broadly as she turned it toward me, revealing a cover that looked much like every other textbook I’d seen.

Unlike most students, Abigail didn’t view the text as dry or boring. She didn’t resent the time she’d spend studying its charts and graphs or re-reading complicated phrases. No, Abigail was proud to show me her new textbook since it served as evidence of the education she was receiving, an education she’d long worked for and had courageously achieved.

Abigail spends most of her day with that book now as she pursues her bachelor’s of commerce degree, and I couldn’t be more proud of her!

This degree will enable her to break the generational cycle of poverty, allowing an independence her childhood would never have indicated for her adulthood. She puts it this way:

Without education, there is no future. With it, even though we grow up in a children’s home, still we can achieve our dreams. It’s important for me because I can stand on my own feet and would like to support myself, my family, and the children’s home where I grew up. Education is a main source of life.

I believe Abigail is right. I believe that education is a key factor in becoming self-sufficient and achieving dreams.

I’ve met so many children, bright, hopeful, needy, and hardworking children like Abigail who deserve the opportunity to achieve their dreams. They just need some support from you to make it possible.

I’m writing today to ask you to make their dreams come true.

As a friend of The Boaz Project, you have heard how grim the statistics are for orphans around the globe. For 19 years, we have sought together to honor God by caring for the children He loves so dearly. And we have watched the miraculous occur as children like Abigail flourish as a result.

I believe that education is a key factor in becoming self sufficient and achieving dreams

Today, you can assist another child from one of our homes by giving him or her the opportunity to stay in school, develop a healthy independence, and potentially, like Abigail, give back to the home where she grew up.

The average cost of educating an Indian or Kenyan child for one year is $570, but it can change their lives and even the trajectory of their families for generations to come.

So please demonstrate kindness to orphans once again by making a generous donation today. They’re ready—eager, even—to do the hard work. They just need your helping hand. You can help orphans reach their dreams of an education by making a donation above.

Thank you for demonstrating your compassion in such a tangible way!

Read Bindhu & Ambika's Story

Bindhu and Ambika, girls with a soft smiles and bright eyes, began their life in rural India with three older sisters, their mother, and their father. Tragically, Bindhu and Ambika’s father died when they were only two and four years old.

Their mother, an uneducated worker, could not take care of all six girls. She took the eldest two daughters to work on a farm and sent Bindhu and Ambika to live with their aunt, where they were beaten and often went to bed hungry. READ MORE

By God’s grace, a pastor who was ministering in the area heard of the girls’ mistreatment and took them to Comeback Children’s Home. Bindhu and Ambika were very happy for their new home. Bindhu and Ambika are now in a safe environment, eating well, and learning that Jesus loves them.

Bindhu and Ambika’s lives were negatively affected by of the lack of education.

As a friend of The Boaz Project, you have heard how a children’s life has been affected by AIDS/HIV and poverty. The lack of education negatively affects an overwhelming amount of children.

As the year comes to an end, we are working toward the goal of providing an education for each child in our Indian and Kenyan homes. I am writing to ask you to join me in this large, but important task because by providing a child with an education we are making a positive impact on their futures.

Bindhu and Ambika are now receiving an education that will change their future for the better and help them in achieving their dreams. Not only are they changing their futures but they’re beating the statistics. It is said that, “In rural areas throughout India, 17.3% of girls do not attend school.”*

The average cost of educating an Indian or Kenyan child for one year is $570, but it can change their life and even the trajectory of their families forever.

Bindhu and Ambika know the powerful effects of the lack of education. They work hard to make sure that it doesn’t affect their futures. They are bright girls with bright futures. Bindhu dreams of being a teacher and Ambika wants to be a lawyer.

Will you join me this year in impacting an orphan’s future and making their dreams come true with the gift of education?
