ORPHAN CARE

Over the past 20 years, America World Adoption has helped connect over 4,600 children with their forever families. We realize God hasn’t called everyone to adopt but we do believe He has called all of us to do something, and we need your help in orphan care and providing for vulnerable children to keep them safe and healthy.

We invite you, your church, your business and your community to join America World in bringing hope and love to orphans around the world. God has called America World to care for vulnerable children around the world, but we need your help

Over the past 20 years, God has helped us create unique partnerships and relationships that allow us to reach beyond borders to provide for the needs of orphans and vulnerable children.  We are inviting individuals, schools, churches, businesses, and communities to join us in orphan care by caring for the least of these.

Just a couple of the things you can do to impact lives are joining us on a mission trip to an orphanage, financially support one of our orphan initiatives, and by praying daily that God would continue to use America World to change lives.

Please contact America World's Chief Development Officer, Joe Wilson, to learn more about how you can partner with us to impact the lives of children.

If you think you cannot affect change, read the excerpt below as a reminder that little things done together make a tremendous impact. So browse our One Orphan pages and do for one orphan what you wished you could do for all


A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched her with amusement.

She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”

The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied, “Well, I made a difference to that one!”

The old man looked at the girl inquisitively and thought about what she had done and said. Inspired, he joined the little girl in throwing starfish back into the sea. Soon others joined, and all the starfish were saved.
