Through guidance and educational funding, you can equip older orphans with the support they need to follow their dreams, earn their degrees, and become independent adults. Sadly, children age out of institutions every day—with nowhere to turn, they often end up on the streets, involved in sex work, drugs, or even resort to suicide. You can give older orphans the tools they need to thrive through education and mentorship opportunities that prepare them for a successful, independent future outside an institution.
