Why these projects?

Each year we work with our home managers to understand the greatest needs of their home. Below are a few of the needs we’ve identified that we need your help to complete! You can adopt an entire project, or give just a portion.

Want to make an even bigger impact?   Recruit friends, family, a youth group, or organization to raise money for one of our larger projects below by sharing this page. We’ll help you communicate why these needs are so important and how they can join you in making a difference!

Greatest Needs

With 8 homes, over 830 children, and 90 staff members, our greatest needs are constantly being evaluated and prioritized. Your gift toward our greatest needs will be allocated to provide an immediate impact where it is needed most.

A new vehicle

$25,000

Both Mogogosiek Baby Homes & Ogada Children’s Home are in need of a vehicle. Vehicles are imperative for the home to be able to quickly get a child to a hospital in an emergency, taking children to appointments, or picking up food & supplies.

A donation of any amount to this project is appreciated.

Mahiga Girl’s Dormitory

$43,000

With the boy’s dorm completed, the next priority for Mahiga is a new space for our girls. A new dormitory will allow for better facilities, and more space for the number of girls in our program.
