Education is the most powerful weapon that you can use to change the world.

GREATER OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM
When Orphan Relief and Rescue was founded, we worked hard to ensure that proper systems were developed and implemented in orphanages for the protection of vulnerable children. We partnered with orphanage home directors and government officials in Liberia to create safe, healthy, and self-sustaining homes. Today, we are proud that these orphanages have successfully graduated from our sponsorship programs and are able to provide for themselves.
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.
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. Many children within institutions are not taught the life skills needed to be fully prepared for life beyond the walls of the orphanage. 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 Liberian 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
Our goal is to empower children who live, or have lived in orphanages to see their full potential through providing education and mentorship.

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 Liberia, where we actively partner with Orphanage Directors to provide safe and loving environments where children can thrive.
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 program gives hope, life and opportunity to children that were once hopeless.
