Who We Are
Mission & Vision
Our mission is to mobilize, encourage and equip the church to minister to the spiritual and physical needs of orphans, vulnerable communities and widows. We provide support and channel generosity and resources to those that desperately need it. We are a voice for orphans, vulnerable communities and widows.
Our vision is to partner with our Community Based Projects and to grow each of these projects into fully operational Life Centers - a place where orphans are known, loved, fathered & mothered, cared for, fed and helped with homework. Life Centers are a safe place where vulnerable children can develop through play, and a place that sees them while giving hope & opportunity for these young people to grow to their God-given full potential.
Stewardship & Accountability
How We Operate
We channel generosity and resources to identified projects that need it most. We help in the facilitation of vital connections that many rural or poor communities do not have. Currently, we have 1100 orphaned and vulnerable children under the Sinani umbrella that we assist and/or provide food for. We have learned that a successful Life Center takes time. Consistency in weekly visitation along with strong relationships help us to properly identify needs in a joint effort with the community leaders.
How We are Financed
Generosity comes from individuals, businesses and international partners to support the communities we work in. Due to the regular requests for support in other communities we are not currently working in, we are seeking to expand our scope of funding in order to grow with the demand. Any funds received are applied to the most vital needs in the communities we serve. With that said, we are open to location specific initiatives and project based donations.
