“An outstanding organization run by some of the finest people we know. It’s so good to invest in a charity that really cares and uses their resources wisely and for the Kingdom of God! Love never fails!” Larry & Stacy Callaway

Donors for more than 10 years

“Volunteering with Orchard: Africa really opened up my world. It was my first time experiencing the world through a different lens. The people I met while I was in South Africa taught me what it truly looks like to be selflessly kind. They taught me what it means to be joyful despite what you do or don’t have. When I volunteered with Orchard: Africa, I felt like I was welcomed into a family. And when I left, I left with new friends who remain an important part of my life, even though they’re an entire ocean away.”

“Getting involved with Orchard: Africa is a life-changing experience. The compassion and care they bring to the communities they work with in South Africa, along with the expertise and excellence in hosting and leading mission teams is second to none. They truly embody what it means to “be the Church”. Everyone in my group came home having met God in a brand new way. Amazing!” David Valentine
