Saving Orphans Through the Allies Mentoring Program

Did you know the life expectancy of an orphan is less than age 30? They age out of orphanages sometimes as early as age 15 without life skills or guidance. This reality is why orphans are at high risk for homelessness, addiction, suicide, and human trafficking. The Allies Mentoring Program (AMP) is the foundation of Allies in Youth Development to prevent orphans from becoming another statistic.

How Does It Work?

We created a network of area leaders who work with volunteer coordinators to organize groups of in-country volunteers to visit orphanages. These regular visits are a way to build friendships, provide healing, and teach orphans life skills they need for a successful future. This necessary human connection shows orphans they are not alone and gives them emotional, educational, and spiritual support.

Learn how our mentoring program paved the way to provide immediate aid to Ukraine when the war began in February 2022.

Nurturing Nature: Your Donations Cultivate Knowledge & Hope!

Understanding God's Creation & Our Role in It

Embracing the wisdom of the Bible, we dove deep into the significance of ecology in our most recent program. Drawing inspiration from scriptures like Genesis 2:15 and Genesis 1:11, the children were enlightened about humanity's vital role as stewards of Earth. They learned that ecology is more than just a scientific concept—it's an interconnected relationship between humans and nature, crucial for our survival and prosperity.


Shaping Tomorrow's Communicators

Imagine a room bustling with 103 curious children and 6 dedicated volunteers, all united by a singular purpose: to master the art of communication. This recent program, made possible by you, offered these young minds the chance to explore and redefine what communication means to them. From lively discussions to creative activities like art exploration, your support is laying the foundation for them to navigate their worlds with confidence and clarity.
