PREPARE AN OLDER ORPHAN FOR INDEPENDENCE
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 the sex industry, using drugs, or even resort to suicide. You can help young adults rewrite their story, find true healing, and prepare for a successful, independent future.
PHOTO ABOVE: 21-year-old Marcella’s transformation this past year is a testament to the healing power of connection! When Marcella first moved into the Dream Home in 2019, she was very driven but isolated. Marcella was struggling in school and was in danger of failing out of her classes. During this time of uncertainty, Marcella’s walls finally began to come down. AGCI’s Dream Home team helped secure tutors so that she was able to advance in her classes and provided a safe space for her to open up, and let our team share her load as she walked through a difficult season. Today, this incredible young woman is now light, funny, and finally feels at home in her own skin. It has been such a blessing to see God at work in Marcella!
