What is Orphan Hosting?
Orphan Hosting is a Life-Changing Mission Trip in Your Own Home Bringing HOPE and Family to Forgotten Children
Welcome to Project 143's Orphan Hosting Program! Have you ever wanted to make a difference in the life of an orphaned child? Do you have a heart for cultural exchange and a desire to share your family's values and beliefs? Look no further! Orphan hosting is a unique opportunity to invite an orphan child into your home for 4-6 weeks over the summer or winter holidays. It's like a mission trip, but in your own home!
Orphan hosting is a powerful way to provide these forgotten children with the warmth and security of a family. With over 143 million orphans worldwide, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the scope of the problem. But by hosting just one 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.
At Project 143, we are dedicated to finding homes for older children, children with special needs, and sibling sets, who are often overlooked and forgotten. Our program has a special emphasis on hosting older children, children with special needs, and sibling sets, as these children are often the most forgotten or overlooked. However, no matter what age or needs the child may have, our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, and loving home environment that can help them grow and thrive.
We carefully select each child based on their unique needs and personality, ensuring that they are a good match for their host family. Host children range in age from 6-16 and each host family is matched with the child(ren) that fits best with their family dynamic after viewing the children’s photos and reading their biographies online.
But hosting a child is not just about providing a home for a few weeks. It's about cultural exchange and the opportunity to learn from one another. By opening your home to an orphaned child, you have the chance to share your values, beliefs, and way of life, while also learning something new from your host child. It's a chance to broaden your horizons and make a meaningful impact on a child's life.
We understand that adoption may be on your mind, but it's important to note that our focus is cultural exchange and exposing the children to family life outside an orphanage. Adoption is sometimes the by-product of the program, but not the goal. If adoption is your primary interest, we recommend reaching out to a Hague Accredited agency as Project 143 is NOT an adoption agency. We do not facilitate adoptions in any way.
Whether or not you're interested in adoption, hosting a child can be a life-changing experience for both the child and your family. By opening your heart and your home to an orphan child, you have the chance to create memories that will last a lifetime and give a child the love and support they need to reach their full potential. We invite you to join us in our mission to combat the global orphan crisis and give every child the chance to experience the joy of being part of a family.
Hosting an orphan child can be a life-changing experience, not just for the child, but for the host family as well. There's nothing more nourishing to the soul than giving a child HOPE and the experience of family life. Your family will feel more blessed than you ever imagined after hosting an orphan child. The experience can bring your family closer together and open your eyes to the incredible strength and resilience of the human spirit.
In conclusion, orphan hosting is an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of orphaned children around the world. It's a chance to bring HOPE and family to children who have been forgotten and overlooked. We hope you'll consider hosting a child and experiencing the life-changing power of family for yourself. Thank you for your interest in Project 143 and our mission to combat the global orphan crisis, one child at a time.
