Empowering Orphans: Local people, local projects.
Orphans and children at risk of becoming orphans are being cared for by local churches in large numbers throughout southern Africa. Every day, 500 people die in Zimbabwe from AIDS related illnesses and 1,000 children become orphaned.
Forgotten Voices is demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ by equipping local churches in southern Africa to meet the physical & spiritual needs of children orphaned by AIDS in their communities. We are focused on locally developed, locally run orphan care to protect the voices of pastors, community leaders, and the children they serve.
The ministry of Forgotten Voices International is founded on the premise that every person is precious in the sight of God. Entire communities are being ravaged by AIDS, leaving orphans as survivors with forgotten voices that are too young or too vulnerable to rise above the background noise of a busy and preoccupied world.
But there is hope, and together with partners across the US and around the world, Forgotten Voices is equipping leaders and empowering orphans in southern Africa. Forgotten Voices comes alongside these local pastors and helps them develop Local Action Plans for orphan care, funds them, and connects these pastors to other pastors through local seminaries and training programs.
