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.

Orphans need education, training and opportunities. Proper skills development through our education

time for them to lead independent lives.

Empower

Abandonment can lead any child down the wrong path. Restoring their motivation, self-worth and dignity empowers them to make better choices, improves educational abilities, and forms a foundation for success.

Pizza and Prayers

We had another successful day visiting the children. Sadly, not all of us made it this time as one of our volunteers was hospitalized. The children, while excited to see us as usual, were quick to notice and ask about our missing team member. We promptly explained to them he was not feeling well and gave him a call so they could say a warm hello and wish him a speedy recovery.
