PROJECT 82 exists in response to God’s call to protect, love and care for orphans by connecting giving hearts to those in need.
STATEMENT OF BELIEFS
WE BELIEVE all are created in the image of God and that orphans, many of whom suffer from poverty related disease, are precious to our Lord and we boldly seek to love, protect, and care for them in their living and in their dying.
WE BELIEVE that effective and sustainable orphan ministry should be done in partnership with Kenyans and their local churches and organizations, who are best able to understand the family, community and cultural dynamics.
WE BELIEVE that orphanages and group homes are a compassionate response to the orphan crisis but that a child has the best opportunity to thrive in a family environment and we are therefore committed to ministry solutions that support empowering community and family to protect and care for orphans.
WE BELIEVE that in the midst of great tragedy that is playing out in the lives of millions of orphans, God’s perfect grace and provision is also evident inthe abundant blessings and resources of this country. We pray for hearts to be transformed and for an obedient response to the expectation that: To Whom much is given, Much is expected”.
WE BELIEVE we are accountable to God and to our financial supporters to be faithful stewards, transparent and fully accountable for all resources of the ministry and we will:
-Maintain the highest standards of organizational governance and strict adherence to our Conflict of Interest policy.
-Annually, conduct fully independent audits of our financial statements.
WE BELIEVE and rely upon God’s generous and self-giving character and therefore commit ourselves to beginning, sustaining, and ending all of our efforts in humble prayer to him. We believe that when we pray to see orphans loved and restored, we do not merely pray to God on their behalf but pray with God on their behalf. Finally, we believe Scripture when it says that “If the Lord does not build the house, its laborers labor in vain.”
In response to the fruit of the ministry, we will always and only praise God and humbly proclaim Soli deo Gloria.
