Our foundation's mission is to provide grants to low and middle-income families that are adopting orphans from institutions - especially those children with "special needs." As such, we just want to be clear that we don't operate an orphanage or a Foster Group Home where the children are located. If it was your intent to work with the children in an orphanage in your area, you’d have to check with them to see if they would allow you to work directly with the children. In the United States, we call orphanages: Foster Group Homes. If you want to help at a real orphanage, those opportunities are available in places like Africa. You can find out more below.
There are many other ways to help. If you are interested in helping with fundraising, we would love to hear from you. In fact, if you apply, we would send you a 360 page eBook on how to help us raise money to help low and middle-income adopting families rescue a child from an institution. Just fill out the form below and tell us what you'd like to do.
Let us know your skills and interests below, and we'll let you know how you can change the world by helping us change the lives of many children who are living in orphanages around the world.
We are constantly adding “Service Tours” to our program. Some are awareness tours where about one-third of the trip will be to meet and play with the children, and two-thirds will be enjoying the culture of that country. To keep up-to-date with our service tour program, please subscribe to our newsletter on the left side of this page.
Other programs are in poorer regions of the world where children are at extreme risk, and ministries and missions have taken over the fight to keep these children alive.
Think you might like to travel to Africa and help out at an orphanage? We have set up programs with 4 orphanages in South Africa, Kenya, and Uganda. To take a peek at two of the orphanages, click on Welcome Home Africa Orphanage or Buyamba Uganda. We are still in the process of uploading videos for Child of Destiny and Lily of the Valley Endeavor (LoVE) but they are also fine orphanages that are doing good work to help the children. If you think this is something for you, know that you will be required to get the appropriate shots for the trip, and that you may come in contact with illnesses. The orphanages will provide you with the list of things you might need, as well as the rules and regulations for participating at the orphanage. For more information contact us at Volunteer Africa and indicate which of the four orphanages you are interested in helping.
Volunteer as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) and represent the interests of abused or neglected children who are being cared for in the United States Foster Care system. This interview took place on our local TV show in Southern California, and will give you a thorough understanding of the duties and responsibilities. We met with local CASA volunteers, but know that the program is national. In this clip you will meet 3 CASA Volunteers, the Interface organization that coordinates the activities of the CASA volunteers, and hear strong words of support from Dr. Phil and his wife Robin. You can also find more information at the following websites: Ventura Interface/CASA; National CASA: National CASA Program.
