WHY WE SERVE
All God’s Children International is dedicated to answering God’s call to provide the loving care that every child deserves. We are excited that you have chosen to come alongside us as we answer God’s call!
In order to maximize impact, we are committed to training and equipping our short-term teams with the knowledge and resources needed to make a difference for the 8 Million orphans living in institutions worldwide.
We only lead vision trips when we are confident that we can do so ethically. Without preparation or forethought, mission or vision trips can be more focused on “the self”, promote cultural imperialism, and meet symptoms instead of root causes.
AGCI’s in-country leaders and the work they accomplish, serve as a guide for how we can have an impact without unintentionally hurting those we serve. With a deep investment on both sides of the trip, AGCI works hard to bolster connection to the work in a sustainable manner. Additionally, AGCI conducts pre-trip training to prepare participants both before and after their trip.
We encourage all potential vision trip participants to mentally and emotionally prepare with prayerful reflection.
