Picture of former orphan reconciled with family

Caring for orphaned and vulnerable children is one of the most righteous things we can do as Christians. But without knowing the issues and best practices, we can cause more damage than good.

We know because we did. We helped support orphanages—an industry that most often exists to profit from the exploitation of children, most of whom are not even orphans—but changed everything when we learned the truth. (Hear our story) We invite you to learn from our mistakes.

Check out the resources here on this page created by us and other reputable organizations. You’ll be informed as to the best ways you can get involved to help orphaned and vulnerable children.
