2.  Organization:  Forgotten Voices

Partnership Model: Individualized Church to Church Partnerships (Church-wide Engagement)

Description: Forgotten Voices International is Innovating Orphan Care through the local church. Our program offers you a direct partnership with a church in southern Africa that is leading the way in community-based orphan care. Together, you’ll come alongside vulnerable children by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of those orphaned by AIDS. Through prayer and financial support of a church partner’s orphan care ministry, your church can play a vital role in encouraging African church leaders, as well as raising awareness in your local community about the realities of orphaned children in our world. This is an amazing opportunity for the Global Church to come together to provide care for vulnerable children and mutually support, encourage and disciple one another!

What Local Host Does:  Your Orphan Sunday event can be designed to launch an ongoing partnership with a church in southern Africa or as a one-time partnership event.

  • Contact Forgotten Voices to initiate your partnership with one of our church partners in southern Africa. Email info@forgottenvoices.org or call 717 506 3144.
  • Show your congregation a 5-minute video highlighting the work of Forgotten Voices International. The video will both raise awareness of the needs and convey a message of hope for children orphaned by AIDS in southern Africa  (http://www.forgottenvoices.org/)
  • Following the video, use the materials provided to introduce your church partner in southern Africa. Read a first-hand account of an orphaned child or caregiver assisted by this church to understand the powerful role of their partnership with Forgotten Voices International.
  • Use the materials provided to lead your congregation in a Forgotten Voices Orphan Sunday Pray Exercise focused on praying for the pastor, church volunteers, caregivers and orphaned children in your partnership church.
