Mission and Values

Our Mission

To inspire and equip others to love orphaned and at-risk children and their communities with excellence.

We are working toward that goal by collaborating with other excellence-driven organizations to train and equip others to prevent orphaned and vulnerable children, care for those who are orphaned and vulnerable, and rehabilitate and restore the children who have suffered trauma or other negative consequences from their difficult childhoods. We focus our training in the areas of leadership, organizational development, and collaborative best practices and we work collectively with other trainers to ensure our trainees are provided everything they need to prepare them to love the orphaned and vulnerable children in their care with utmost excellence.

Values

We are guided by Scripture and the model of Christ. We seek to act in a way that is consistent with the heart and character of Christ, so that we may be able to transform the world as God’s image bearers. We view ourselves as stewards of everything given to us and placed before us in our lives, including the material things, natural resources, and people entrusted to our care.

Collaboration

In order to best care for orphaned and at-risk children worldwide and prevent the continued growth in numbers, we need a network of churches and organizations who are committed to working together to increase awareness, enhance cultivation, and expedite transformation.

Integrity

We must always strive to serve with complete transparency, honesty, uncompromised ethics, and in a manner that is above reproach. In addition, we must work to connect preventive and corrective initiatives to ensure a full-spectrum solution that allows children to flourish.

Excellence

We seek to do everything the best it can possibly be done, with utmost excellence, in a comprehensive manner. We understand excellence does not result from occasional and unstructured activity, but rather through repeated and disciplined thought and action.

Learning

This is an absolutely essential part in developing critical thinking skills and discovering new ways of loving children from different cultures. We long to grow by acquiring and sharing best-practices that help individuals and organizations maximize mission effectiveness.

Focus Areas

As challenges escalate, the need for teamwork elevates. Knowing that one organization is too small to combat the global orphan crisis, we focus on partnerships that enable us to collectively grow in our ability to serve children and families better and better every day. Since organizations develop daily, not in a day, our equipping is developed around the process of awareness, cultivation, and transformation.

Awareness

Even though the manner of care for orphaned children worldwide improves each year, the fact remains that the number of orphaned children continually grows. In order to properly address this issue and reverse the growth trend, we need to implement best practices not just in restoration, but also in prevention.

Cultivation

Growth is a process, not an event. We continually work to develop our best-practice model through extensive research, working with other orphan care organizations and engaging in worldwide conversation through our collaborative podcasts and book projects.

Transformation

We know that in order to truly make a difference and achieve excellence that lasts, we must remain committed to continually moving from good, to better, to best – only then will we achieve true transformation in the way we love orphaned and at-risk children and their communities.
