While donations are essential, we think it's equally as important that loving adults directly connect with orphaned children because becoming involved with a child in a meaningful way changes a life forever. If you are willing to donate, we have projects where your financial support will make a crucial difference. If you want to get more directly involved, we will connect you with orphanages around the globe and their supporting operations in the United States.

We are Volunteers, Just Like You.


No salaries. No headquarters. No overhead. 100% of your donation goes directly toward the shelter, clothing, medical care, education and other needs of orphaned children. We fully review every orphanage we recommend, both in terms of the quality of life for the children and how they utilize the grants and supplies we provide them.
