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

  • We are currently supporting over 250 projects in over 60 countries, partnering with established ministries already working on the ground and supporting their efforts to help orphaned and vulnerable children. Working in this way stretches every dollar and ensures that projects are run efficiently.
  • Sometimes the need is simple - bedding and supplies for an orphanage, computers for learning centers, or fresh water for a village. Sometimes they are larger - a residential building, a program to help transition sex slaves into a safe place, a training center for children who have aged out of their orphanage. Whatever the need may be, we depend on the Lord’s leading and the wisdom of team members who are familiar with working in developing nations to guide us.
  • In Northern Iraq, we're reaching children that were traumatized after being kidnapped by ISIS and then rescued. We're providing musical instruments and employment for music and art therapy teachers to help these children work through their trauma and experience inner healing.
  • In Costa Rica OP helped provide holistic care to thousands of at-risk children. In 2018 we served over 122,000 plates of nutritious meals and snacks through our feeding programs run by local church partnerships. We also equipped each of these projects with backpacks and school supplies, as well as the Superbook resources that help teach these kids the Word of God.
  • Across various countries in Africa, we are changing the lives of thousands of children by providing them with access to free education.

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