What we do

Orphans & Vulnerable Children

CBN is reaching out to orphans and vulnerable children through CBN’s Orphan’s Promise. Ministry partners are sharing the love of Jesus and meeting their physical, educational and spiritual needs through partnerships with local churches and other established ministries.

The Need

  • Tragically, there are millions of orphaned children worldwide who have never known the love of a mother and father.
  • There are also millions who have parents living below the poverty line and suffer hunger, hardship, abuse and even fall victim to the horrors of human trafficking.
  • In many countries, thousands of children will die before the age of five from food shortages, polluted water, and lack of basic hygiene and medical care.

What We Have Accomplished Together

  • The mission of CBN’s Orphan’s Promise is to love and serve orphaned and at-risk children. While we were faced with many challenges and limited operations, OP has continued to be a source of hope and encouragement to the children and communities we serve around the world.
  • Last year, Orphan’s Promise provided food, shelter, educational opportunities, job training, and Christian discipleship to at-risk children in over 60 countries.1
  • In the United States, Orphan’s Promise’s anti-trafficking efforts are helping provide trafficking victims with care, case management and court support, skills training, and job support, as well as basic needs such as transportation, food, medical care, and housing assistance. In addition, here in Hampton Roads of Virginia, OP helped provide The Prevention Project Curriculum to 6 public schools in Portsmouth, VA through one of our supported projects. This curriculum has been used in over 600 classrooms around the US and seeks to prevent human trafficking, as well as equip student leaders to bring a lasting change in their schools, communities, and beyond.
  • In the Middle East, Lebanon is facing a severe economic crisis which was just declared by the World Bank to be one of the worst in the world. Living conditions have continued to worsen for refugees, most are unable to meet even basic needs to survive. The project OP supports there, Heart for Lebanon, was able to obtain a special permit to distribute food and hygiene items and have greatly increased the number of families they serve. Schools are now permitted to meet in person, so they’ve restarted their education programs as well. Throughout the crisis, our teachers visited homes and used WhatsApp to communicate with the children and provide lessons.
  • In South East Asia, Orphan’s Promise has initiated our Super5 Program, a holistic early childhood development curriculum designed to empower families and local churches to disciple children between the ages of 0-6 years old. We are partnering with over 100 churches to use our Super5 Program as the curriculum for their Early Child Development (ECD) Ministries. We have also trained kindergarten teachers and are conducting online mentoring classes to help ensure the programs run smoothly. We also opened 14 new School of Life Centers throughout remote areas of Indonesia. School of Life is an after-school program for children between the ages of 6-14. Each center partners with a local church to help meet the spiritual, intellectual, physical, and socio-emotional needs of the vulnerable children they serve.
  • During this time of high unemployment and financial instability, Orphan’s Promise projects were restructured, making safety and nutrition a primary focus. Throughout the year, our staff and volunteers have regularly delivered food and essential care packages to thousands of children and their families around the world, while also providing them with emotional and spiritual support. In Ukraine, the teens from two of our transitional homes organized initiatives to sew thousands of masks and distribute them to charitable organizations, hospitals, and at-risk individuals.
  • In the former Soviet Union, Orphan’s Promise’s SEED Project (Something to Eat Every Day) is gaining momentum! For nine years the project has been meeting the needs of hungry people all over the country, feeding them from summer to spring, giving them hope for tomorrow. This year thousands of vulnerable people were provided with potatoes and other vegetables for the entire winter! Their cellars are full and their hearts are filled with gratitude to the Lord, and to OP.

With your generosity, these programs bring hope and relief to those in need, as an expression of God's unfailing love.
