Orphan Care

7 out of 10 children in Theri come from broken homes. Aids, poverty, addiction, shortage of food, and abandonment have left countless children living with neighbors or on their own. Emmanne Ministries began our work by reaching out to the ‘least of these,’ the orphans. We opened our children’s home in 2015 and have since built a home that can care for 24 children. The long-term goal is to love 48 children in two homes. We have built our philosophy around the United Nations’ Rights of the Child:

  1. The right to live with a family

  2. The right to a stable, loving, nurturing environment

  3. The right to healthcare and nutrition

  4. The right to clean water and electric power

  5. The right to a quality education

  6. The right to equal opportunities

  7. The right to guidance from a caring adult

  8. The right to be heard and participate in decisions that affect them

  9. The right to be prepared for active responsible citizenship

  10. The right to protection from abuse and

  11. The right to live in conditions of dignity and freedom

  12. The right to spiritual development
