We Are Named for Who We Serve
Who We Are:
Project One Forty Three, Inc., (Project 143) is a 501(c)3 (EIN: 27-1345034) organization that is dedicated to helping orphan children experience the love of family. We believe that every child deserves the warmth and security of a family, but unfortunately, there are currently 143+ million orphans worldwide who do not have this opportunity.
Our mission at P143 is to give orphaned children HOPE. We do this by running four to eight week Orphan Hosting Programs that connect these children with loving host families for cultural exchange and adoption opportunities, twice per year. By simply opening your home to an orphaned child, you can make a tremendous difference in their life and give them the chance to experience the joy of being part of a family.
Most orphans have never experienced the life-giving love of being connected to a family. They have never taken part in a vacation, shared in a game of catch with dad, or gotten "made-up" with mom. But with your help, we can change that. By hosting an orphaned child for 4 to 8 weeks this summer or winter, you can provide them with a life-changing experience that they will never forget.
But our work at P143 goes beyond just connecting children with host families. We also strive to raise awareness about the global orphan crisis and the need for families to step up and make a difference. We believe that every child deserves a loving home and we are committed to doing all we can to make that a reality.
One of the unique aspects of our Orphan Hosting Programs is that while adoption is always a welcomed result, they are designed to promote cultural exchange. By connecting orphan children with host families, we give them the opportunity to experience a new culture, language, and way of life. This is not only beneficial for the orphan children but also for the host families, who can learn so much from the child's unique perspective and experiences. While we're frequently amazed at the huge changes that take place with the kids in such a short period of time, we're equally amazed at the life changing impact that it has on the host families.
At P143, we are driven by a deep passion for helping orphaned children and giving them the love and support they need to thrive. We believe that every child deserves to have someone in their corner, cheering them on and providing them with the tools they need to succeed. By working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of these forgotten children.
But we can't do it alone. We need your help. Whether you are interested in hosting a child, donating to support our programs, or simply spreading the word about our mission, every little bit helps.
We are grateful for the support of our P143 host family community - the many individuals and families who have opened their hearts and homes to orphaned children. With your help, we can continue to provide these children with the love, support, and resources they need to thrive. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of orphaned children around the world.
We hope that you will join Project 143 in our fight to combat the global orphan crisis - ONE child at a time. Together, we can make a difference and give these forgotten children the life-changing power of family.
