WE BELIEVE that all are created in the image of God and that orphans and widows, many of whom suffer from poverty-related diseases, are precious to our Lord. We boldly seek to love, protect and care for them, strengthening their family units and assisting them to become self-sustaining.
WE BELIEVE that effective and sustainable orphan ministry should be done in partnership with Kenyans, who are best able to understand the family, community and cultural dynamics.
WE BELIEVE that all children should be raised within a family, whether it is their birth family, an adopted family or a family specifically designed to serve orphans. These settings provide children with family members who love and care for them and will always be part of their lives. A child never ages out of his or her family. A family is forever.
WE BELIEVE that in the midst of the great tragedy that is playing out in the lives of millions of orphans, God’s perfect grace and provision is also evident in the abundant blessings and resources of the United States. We pray for hearts to be transformed and for an obedient response to the expectation: “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.
- Maintain our standing as an accredited member of ECFA (Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability).
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. In response to the fruit of the ministry, we will always–and only–praise God and proclaim Soli deo Gloria.
