The Global Orphan Project (GO Project) embraces a ministry/marketplace circuit that expands the capacity of the local church to care for local children and families in crisis and breaks the orphan cycle through the dignity of work and education. GO partners with local church leaders from Kansas City to Kampala and utilizes a catalytic tool called CarePortal to connect care providers and resources to children and families in need. We’ve also launched GOEX, an integrated, custom T-shirt, apparel company providing living-wage jobs. Proceeds from each T-sale and all profits go to support the ministry to care for orphaned and abandoned children.

This is our ‘Greatest Needs’ category, and the rocket fuel of the ministry. Donations here fill critical life gaps for the children, and, most importantly, drive economic and agricultural development. 100% of our GO Fund is used for the 'now needs' of the children that must be met as they arise, agricultural development, and economic development. One time gifts and monthly gifts in of any amount will help us grow our reach and impact.
