Prevention: The best form of Orphan Care starts with prevention: stepping into a child or parent’s story before a family breaks down. Through our fair trade apparel company, GOEX, we provide strong jobs that improve the lives of the workers and communities we touch in Haiti and in Kansas City, Missouri with the goal to break the orphan cycle through the dignity of work. We also offer culturally relevant family-strengthening and orphan prevention programs that equip families with basic financial management skills, job skills and spiritual healing. Additionally, we provide community support by connecting children and families affected by the child welfare system to people who want to help, through our online platform called CarePortal. Care: GO Project embraces community. Focusing on one child at a time, we work together with our local church partners in 12 countries to provide sustainable, family-style care that is deeply rooted in compassion, hope and the belief that every child deserves a good home

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.
