Through Independence Sponsorship, you can give hope to young adults aging out of institutions! Your support provides the opportunities and resources needed for a student to earn their college degree or vocational training certification while also learning what it means to be a successful, independent adult.
You can be the difference for older orphans through Dream Home or Vocational Training Sponsorship!
Together with our partner in Colombia, we’re creating Dream Homes for children aging out of institutional care. Sadly, in many countries, children “age out” of the government care system as young as 15 years old—this means they are no longer eligible for adoption and are often put on the street with zero support. Dream Homes provide a safe space for teenagers to transition into independent adulthood. Through dorm-style housing, kids who previously would have been on the streets will now have an opportunity to study, live, and learn how to be an adult while pursuing a college degree or vocational training program.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
Training and education are crucial in empowering older orphans in creating full, happy lives outside of an institution. Through Education Sponsorship and Vocational Training Programs, we support orphans who are aging out to ensure that they have the tools they need to achieve their dreams, develop healthy relationships, and create successful independent futures.
You can impact older orphans by providing them with the sponsorship and encouragement they need to follow their dreams, earn their degrees, and become independent adults.
