Childhood is the time in which we undergo the most development, meaning that a nurturing environment is more important than ever during this stage. Despite this, 153 million orphans worldwide don’t have access to a family unit to teach them the life skills that every child should know. As a result, millions of children across the globe lack confidence and the ability to interact with others, which leads to isolated adults.

We’re dedicated to helping orphans so that their development isn’t stunted by a challenging upbringing. Read on to find out more about how Orphans in Need is helping orphans with life skills and what you can do to contribute.

Our Orphan Sponsorship Appeal

The first of our orphan appeals is our orphan sponsorship programme which is designed to protect vulnerable children from exploitation, abuse, and neglect. We aim to provide them with suitable shelter, emotional support, and a solid education so that they’re enabled to build a better life. Although all children are vulnerable, orphans are especially so because they don’t have a family or stable home to protect them from the dangers of the outside world.

Accessible shelter, food, healthcare, education, protection and emotional support are basic human rights, yet so many children without parents go without it. No innocent child should have to suffer this dreaded fate which is why we ask you to sponsor an orphan so that we can provide them with the life skills they need to progress in their life.

Global Orphan Care

Next is our Global Orphan Care Appeal in which we aim to provide orphaned children with a safe place to grow. Not only do we strive to deliver food and clean clothes, but we make it our mission to nurture and support them whilst giving them access to education. Consequently, these children will go on to become positive community members, allowing us to shift their narrative from a state of vulnerability to independence. It’s our goal to equip these children with long-term provisions rather than temporary aid, allowing them to gain the life skills they need to prosper.

Many children are left in orphanages by their widowed mothers, either because they can’t afford to take care of them or they’re not well enough to do so. As a result, orphanages are often crowded, meaning they’re not equipped to nurture every child in their care. Our programme works to fund these institutions so that orphaned children are presented with a world of opportunity. Donate to our appeal today to make this possible.

Help Orphans with Life Skills with Orphans in Need

Here at Orphans in Need, we pride ourselves on providing long-term support for orphaned children, as well as the temporary provisions they need to survive. We know that a child can’t flourish on living essentials alone, which is why we place so much emphasis on helping children develop life skills so they can build a future for themselves. Poverty is a vicious cycle and we’re dedicated to stopping it in its tracks before it’s too late. You can help an orphaned child thrive by making your donation today.
