Welcome to Village of the Children!
Village of the Children is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2008 with a vision to care for orphaned, abandoned, and severely impoverished children. Our inspiration is the teaching and ministry of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Bible. Our first project is an orphanage in Cachora, Peru which has been operational since August of 2008. Future projects include a trade school and a pastor training facility.
Why Village of the Children?
High in the Andes mountains of Peru, near the village of Cachora, stands Village of the Children. It is a Christian ministry built to care for orphaned children – precious little ones who have been neglected, abused, or abandoned.
Too many children in Peru are at risk because of extreme poverty, alcoholism, violence, AIDS, and other factors where their parents are either dead or unable to care for them. The vision of Village of the Children is to provide a stable and loving home for these children so that they have hope and a chance to reach their true potential. We take seriously God’s command to care for the vulnerable and the needy, but we can’t do it alone. We need your help!
Village of the Children occupies seven acres outside of Cachora, Peru. The orphanage currently consists of four buildings, each capable of housing approximately 10 children and a set of house parents. Currently there are 35 needy children and three sets of house parents in our care, as well as an administrative couple, and a cook. The children attend school in the nearby village of Cachora. Currently the remaining land is used for the farming and growing of some of their own food, and a church has been established at the orphanage that meets regularly.
