Ministry Description
Lifesong for Orphans brings JOY and PURPOSE to orphans and vulnerable children through indigenous ORPHAN CARE initiatives in twelve countries and FOSTER CARE initiatives in communities across the United States. We facilitate no-cost CHURCH ADOPTION FUNDS nationwide and provide ADOPTION grants and interest-free loans to adoptive families.

Today 143 million orphans are waiting…for you to direct your talent and expertise to creating in-country solutions to the orphan crisis. We invite you to become an orphan advocate today!
Lifesong schools are some of the best in their cities - as they embrace all areas of the children's need: academic achievement, increased use/understanding of English, nutritious food, health care for children, and Bible based curriculum and spiritual growth. A gift of $37 funds one child's education for a month. A gift of $444 funds one child's education for a year.
Help remove the financial barrier that prevents so many orphan children from becoming adopted into a Christian family. MATCHING GRANTS: averages around $2,500 and strategically serves as a catalyst in raising funds to cover adoption expenses. INTEREST-FREE LOANS: Loans of up to $12,000 that are a strategic solution, creating a self-perpetuating fund, where loan repayments from adoptive families can meet the needs of new adopting families.

Lifesong serves orphans by providing regular meals, shelter, a nurturing environment, job skill training, and Christian mentoring through daily Bible studies, worship, and scripture memorization. Most importantly the children learn about the love of Christ and His plan for their lives! A gift of $360 gives one child a home for a year. A gift of $21,600 funds an entire home for 60 children. (
