Why Sponsor the U.S. Office?
Orchard: Africa’s U.S. office sources the majority of all resources for the work that takes place in Southern Africa. Without the work done in the U.S. office, the work in Africa would come to a complete stand still.

In addition to covering the cost of fundraising, the investment also covers administration, donor education & feedback, and the development of many of our program toolkits that get implemented in Africa. Your sponsorship of this project makes us stronger and allows us to further the great works that you love.

What can go wrong with the project?
Orchard: Africa works in some of the poorest and most challenging communities in Southern Africa because that’s where the need is greatest. Given that, despite our best efforts to the project’s expectations, forces beyond our control occasionally require a change of plans. The list of uncertainties we’ve encountered is long: policies change, political policy changes, droughts, storms, and changing community needs.
No matter what happens, we promise that your donation will fund in country project costs. In addition to updating you about our progress, we’ll inform you if the location of project has to change. In the unlikely event that we need to totally reallocate your funds, we’ll work with you to put them towards a project similar to the one you chose to support in the first place.
How much is the local church involved in the project?
Every step of the way. The projects aren’t “complete” until the churches receiving them are engaged and empowered to care for them.
In most cases, church leaders enlist local community members to help contstruct the project from beginning to end. For larger construction projects, we contract with in-country professionals who have the nessesary expertise and equipment. Once completed, the projects are operated & maintained by the local church and, occassionally, visiting Journey Teams.
We believe that lasting changes happens when a church and community are equipped provide for themselves.
