|We’ve quickly come to find that the problem of orphan care is vastly complex. Trafficking, disease, racism, corruption and other issues all play a role in child abandonment or death of a parent. As one interviewee poignantly noted, “[in orphan care] you must learn to walk in the eye of the hurricane.” And it’s true, by remaining in God’s peace and hope, solutions can emerge. In the last 3 months we have uncovered models of orphan care that are working and that could likely be replicated in other countries. These models include transition homes for aged out orphans, foster care, community care, child sponsorship, and hosting.
We are also excited to announce a new section of our webpage that provides an overview of our findings in each country. You can track along with us, and see how God is at work! Visit our website and click on the “countries visited” tab to check it out.
