About World Orphans

As non-profit, para-church organization, the mission of World Orphans is to equip, inspire, and mobilize the church to care for orphans and vulnerable children. Churches engaged. Children restored. Communities transformed by the gospel of Christ.

Most children living in orphanages have at least one living parent. At World Orphans, we help keep families together, strengthen them, and help them toward independence. Our Home Based Care program focuses on family preservation through addressing and preventing the rise of the orphan population by caring for children in their home environments. Through Church Partnership we come alongside local churches to provide support for vulnerable families and children within their communities.
