Adopt | KC will encourage churches, families to help children in need
By HELEN T. GRAY | The Kansas City Star
Global Orphan Project has always looked outward, working in the Caribbean, Africa or Asia where poverty and disease have left children without parents and homes.
Now the telescope has turned. The view will be inward, as well, to our streets where some children suffer in much the same way.
Started by Mike and Beth Fox of Kansas City in 2004, the GO Project is not an adoption agency but instead has partnered with indigenous churches to help find families and provide food, clothing, education and spiritual training for children in Haiti, Rwanda, Cambodia, Chad and other countries.
With the decision to begin a U.S. program, the organization has chosen a pilot city — Kansas City.
