All donations help Orchard: Africa develop and equip the rural church to meet the needs of the children and families in their community.
the church can fill the gap
The AIDS pandemic in Southern Africa has left an entire generation of children orphaned and vulnerable. 20 million orphans - 3 times the population of New York City - live in Africa today. The missing generation of parents, workers and providers has left an enormous hole in the future of Africa. But this gap can be filled. When the Church steps in a pastor can become a leader of capacity in their own community. A leader who can feed and care for children, educate youth about HIV/AIDS and be a role model to the orphaned. Imagine an Africa with an Orchard of empowered Church leaders. Our model helps villages stabilize by moving from just daily survival to self lead sustainable projects.
