CHILD SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
Orphan Relief and Rescue connects you to a child in need through Child Sponsorship.
Our Child Sponsorship Program operates in Benin, and is a one-on-one program that pairs a child in our orphanage safe home with a sponsor. As a sponsor, you come alongside the child through your donations and letter-writing.
Many children who are orphaned are forced to live and work as domestic servants in someone’s home, or survive alone on the street. Our Child Sponsorship Program actively partners with orphanage directors, and you, to provide safe and loving environments where children can thrive.
At the orphanage safe home, we ensure an environment for the children to receive mental, emotional, and spiritual support. Children are provided educational or vocational training in the local schools. The children also grow spiritually as they learn about Jesus, who created them, loves them, and values their life.
Through these efforts, we can offer hope where there was hopelessness, safety where there was fear, and opportunity for children who were once forgotten. Thank you for partnering with us to give these precious children new life.

GREATER OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM
We developed the Greater Opportunity Program because we remain committed to seeing children through the transition from orphanage life to one independent from the home. Orphan Relief and Rescue wants to be a source of support for these children as they navigate the world and become agents of change in their own communities.
Many children within institutions are not taught the life skills needed to be fully prepared for life beyond the walls of the orphanage. Greater Opportunity provides Jr. High, High School and University students with tuition for education, a school uniform, supplies, and comprehensive mentorship that focus on the child’s emotional, physical, and spiritual needs. University students in the program receive the above-mentioned assistance as well as housing, food stipend, and transport costs. Mentorship takes place on a weekly basis where local staff interact with the children in various ways, either through group lectures, discussions, or one-on-one sessions. The topics taught through this program include, but are not limited to:
- Personal Finance
- Team Work
- Emotional Intelligence
- Human Rights
- Personal Responsibility
- Faith: God's love, design and purpose for their life
Our goal is to empower children who live, or have lived in orphanages, to see their full potential through providing education and mentorship.
