The Circles of Care explainedGO Project
GO Project’s mission is to break the orphan cycle through community, commerce and the love of Jesus. One of the most significant ways we implement our mission is reflected in the Circles of Care. The Circles of Care is a visualized comparison between two systems of caring for children. The first is a biblical model in which God desires a child to be raised in a family, surrounded by a supporting church and community.
However, due to brokenness in the world, gaps exist in the care system and children are often separated from their family, church and community.
GO Project’s role is to walk with local churches to close gaps in the Circles of Care. Unlike traditional orphan care models, we do not sponsor children. In fact, we don’t want the children or families to even know who GO Project is.
GO Project’s role: Close the gaps
At the center of the Circles of Care graphic, you will find Stanley – a figure used to represent the innocent, vulnerable Child. Stanley is the reason why we serve through this ministry.
The first ring of the circle outside of the Child, you will see the Family. These are the champions – biological, kin, foster or adoptive – who care for the Child. Sometimes the Family ends up broken or in need of additional support.
The second ring of the graphic represents the Church. With the support of our local church partners in the U.S. and around the world, the Family is strengthened and able to provide a healthy, supportive environment for the Child to be raised in. Our technology platform, CarePortal, seeks to bridge the gaps between the Church and the Family, keeping the Church as the direct point of care for the Child and Family.
The third and final ring of the graphic, you will find the Active Community. The givers, buyers and goers who accelerate the impact. Every time you give to GO Project, respond to a need through CarePortal, purchase a fair trade tee from GOEX print + apparel or go on a vision trip with us you are wrapping around countless vulnerable children and their families around the U.S. and the world.
