We’ve just returned from another year of Campamento Mi Momento in Nicaragua. This program includes five days in a camp environment where we focus on providing girls with skills of leadership, goal-setting, proper coping, and relationship building. We’re excited to share this years’ experience with you!
Global Orphan Foundation is happy to announce that we’ve been awarded $25,000 to help expand our farming operations over the next year by BarnRaisers of Indiana. BarnRaisers of Indiana was established in 2012 to address children’s issues locally and abroad. They raise funds and put them to work with trusted non-profit partners who are working on sustainable projects to improve the health and quality of life for orphaned and/or under-privileged children and youth. GOF is honored to be one of their partners this year!
The world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion by the year 2050. That’s a lot of mouths to feed, and we’re not doing a great job with the mouths we already have – 10% of the world’s population suffered from chronic undernourishment in 2016. In Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), malnutrition is especially prevalent, and deadly. One in seven children will die before the age of five, and 50% of those deaths are due to malnutrition. DRC, and the world at large, is searching for sustainable solutions not simply to a lack of food, but a lack of nutritious food.
