ARAHA Orphan Programs
Over the years we have helped to empower hundreds of orphans across the Horn of Africa region (East Africa) with the support of our donors and partners. The orphan program has long been a fundamental component of our organization. We proudly provided sponsorship, general support, holiday gifts and much more. Our approach of taking care of sponsored orphans at ARAHA is simple; it is to have the orphan live with an immediate family or relatives. Also, we make sure if there is more than one orphan from the same family – brothers and sisters – that they stay together with the same guardian. Where they live in a healthy family atmosphere and do not have to suffer another emotional trauma of separation after the loss of their parents or one of them. Through small monthly contributions, donors can choose to make a lasting impact by becoming sponsors. The sponsorship covers the basic cost of food, shelter, and education. Each donor receives personalized information about the orphan they sponsor and semi-annual reports on the child’s wellbeing. The donor-orphan relationship is a special one in which an orphan feels empowered, and the donor feels a sense of humanity. Over the years, many children who have gone through our program become productive citizens who attend university, have careers and start families of their own.
One of ARAHA’s longest-running and most important projects is the orphan sponsorship program. There are thousands and thousands of orphaned children in the Horn, and the majority of them have nowhere to turn for their basic needs or to cover the costs of schooling for a better future. For only $50 a month, you can cover an orphan’s basic needs such as food, school fees, and healthcare.
General Orphan Support
Our orphan program is large and complex, spanning multiple countries, several field offices, and hundreds of children. Orphan sponsorship payments are strictly dedicated to individual orphans, but the entire program requires funding to remain successful. A donation towards general orphan support will ensure that ARAHA can continue to provide food, healthcare, and educational opportunities to as many orphaned children as possible throughout the Horn.
