Orphan Prevention

The line between children who’ve been abandoned and vulnerable children on the brink is a thin one. The difference lies in whether a child has a champion in her life who is still willing to try – even if the weight of life is crushing the effort.

Our local church partners seek to strengthen vulnerable families on the brink. That’s a core part of their ministries. We work with our partners and their communities to help supplement this orphan prevention / family strengthening effort. Our orphan prevention focus centers on Education and Economic Development.

Education

Global Orphan Prevention - School Sponsorships

Many developing world families often have to choose between educating their children and providing basic daily needs for their family. Now more than ever, we realize how essential education is to keeping families together. We work with our partners and their communities to help through education via school sponsorships, vocational training, and school uniforms.

GO Transition Academy & Vocational Training

IPathways Haiti - Global Orphan Preventionn our core ministry, we encounter the obvious: little kids become big kids. What happens when children become adults, and “age out” of care? We help equip our local church partners in the critical transition from childhood to adulthood through the GO Transition Academy. GO Fund invests in the GO Transition Academy and vocational training opportunities for older children in care, and for other young adults in the community with no pathways to a productive future.
