What we do

Orphans & Vulnerable Children

CBN is reaching out to orphans and vulnerable children through CBN’s Orphan’s Promise. Our goal is to reach out with the love of Jesus and meet their physical, educational and spiritual needs through partnerships with local churches and other established ministries.

The Need

  • Tragically, approximately 153 million children are orphaned worldwide.
  • There are millions more children 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

  • Orphan's Promise focuses on six main areas to accomplish the mission to love and serve orphaned and at-risk children: education, nutrition, discipleship, community transformation, family care, and anti-trafficking efforts.
  • We are currently supporting projects in over 60 countries, partnering with established ministries already working on the ground and furthering their efforts to help these children. Working in this way stretches every dollar and ensures that projects are run efficiently.
  • Anti-Trafficking: Since the beginning of the year the number of trafficking victims has increased. Due to the pandemic, schools were shut down and correctional facilities and treatment centers reduced their capacity by releasing inmates and patients early. This left many women and children vulnerable and without support. Through our supported projects, Orphan’s Promise’s anti-trafficking efforts are helping to provide these 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.
  • Education: Help provide education to over 13,000 children around the world. This past summer we helped operate a Reading Camp in the Bronx, NY, that resulted in 40 graduates! We also helped distribute over 500 backpacks filled with school supplies to students in at-risk, low-income areas
  • Discipleship: The pandemic has required our projects around the world to think “outside the box” in how they can make a difference in the lives of the children we serve. One of our projects in the U.S. has exploded in the digital missions’ space by reaching teenagers through a variety of social media platforms. Since August, over 900 text messages have been received from teens indicating they had prayed to receive salvation. The project is now working to set up virtual Bible studies for discipleship through Zoom!
  • Nutrition: 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.
  • Community Transformation: In many regions, Orphan’s Promise projects and partners responded immediately to the COVID-19 pandemic with various initiatives, including educating children and their families on ways to prevent the spread of the virus and providing soap, hand sanitizer, thermometers, masks, and other preventive supplies to families in need. We were even able to start a new SEED (Something to Eat Every Day) Project in Kyrgyzstan this year. Gardens were planted and cultivated that will now feed an entire community this winter!

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