Orphaned Children are Living a Life of Quarantine

And the COVID-19 pandemic is making them feel depressed and suicidal!

We're providing emergency support and we need your help! A generous donor has offered a $10,000 matching gift for GivingTuesday NOW on May 5. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to match it, plus get 200 volunteer hours pledged from our supporters!

Engage

By training and engaging in-country university students
and partners, we cultivate a culture of involvement that
benefits orphans in and outside the orphanage.

Read Story

Educate

Orphans need education, training and opportunities. Proper skills development through our education
programs ensures their success and safety when it's
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.

My Fulfilling Role in Developing the Moral and Spiritual Values of Less-Fortunate Children

Each of us has an innate need to feel attached to another person and sometimes it doesn't take long to feel connected with someone. If you are authentic and open, you can easily touch hearts simply by being around people. Every visit Allies volunteers make to an orphanage is a new experience, filled with emotions and sentiments.
