​​​Giving Chances to Those Who Need Them Most​Your Support Enables Us to Continue with Our Mission

This is the most devastating news for a child who is in Dire need of help. To learn that their support has come to an end is like receiving a Death Sentence to a desperate child. Below are photos of a little girl who had this devastating experience firsthand when her sponsorship funds came abruptly to an end.

You could be the life saving difference for aCHILD IN DESPERATE NEED

A child without a sponsor will likely grow up in severe poverty without school or the education needed to improve their circumstances.

Many children and families are victims of severe poverty. However, when a child loses both parents, the severity of their circumstances become much greater. Often older siblings, grandparents, family members and neighbors are faced with the responsibility of caring for these children when they clearly are not in a position to care for themselves.

Starting with only 30 sponsored children a few years ago, the Institute for Global Outreach (IGO) now supports over 700. Supporting our lifesaving work helps bring health and hope to vulnerable children and families in the neediest communities around the world.

This 6 year old little girl’s tradegy is an example of the devastating effect of losing support. She is an orphan who was in good health thriving while receiving funds through a single benefactor.

Unfortunately, there are not enough agencies to help orphans and the capacity of extended family to care for them is limited. As a result, many children are forced to a life on the streets where they are vulnerable to sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

“These children are given the opportunity to thrive regardless of their health status. They understand that there are many people who have joined together to help end their suffering and they are so excited and happy. Truly Heartwarming!”

 - Velma Kirksey-Tarver

During the period when she received no support her health declined drastically and life became terribly harsh for her. ​​

The Institute for Global Outreach sponsors single and double orphaned children, many of whom have lost parents to the AIDS disease. For these children, a healthy meal, combined with medical support and a loving environment is a life saving difference.

Instead of an orphanage, children that have lost both parents are taken care of by a guardian who most often is a family member and someone that the child feels safe and comfortable with.  A social worker is then assigned to the child to ensure that they are receiving proper care and to assist with any concerns that may arise.

To see the remarkable difference in these now sponsored children after one or two years is an incredible experience. Although still living in the same environment and dealing with the same circumstances, these children are now very Different. The hopeless, lifeless and
withdrawn look in their eyes have become bright, vibrant and
full of hope and excitement!
