2017 was another exciting year for Global Orphan Foundation, full of growth and new adventures. We are building something that will quite literally transform lives for orphaned and vulnerable children in the countries we serve. We work for those children. If we do our job well, we’ll create something that matters as much to them as it does to us, and all of our lives will be better for it. Of course, none of this would be possible without our supporters. We have big goals and big dreams at GOF.
We have an opportunity that is rare. Let’s make the most of it together.
GOF Program Manager Rachael Carmichael shares details of our 2017 Camp My Moment in Nicaragua. 2017 brought 50 girls from six different orphanages, ages twelve to eighteen, to camp in the mountains of Nicaragua for five days in December. The camp focuses on issues of self-esteem, assertive communication, goal setting, and healthy decision making.
A quick 40 days after the groundbreaking, our first of many buildings in DRC is complete. This 800 square foot building will be home to expanded farming operations and more trainings for orphanage partners and local farmers.
