Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Kinship Sponsorship

It all starts with the church. Indigenous pastor-led churches are the foundation of each Kinship Project. These native leaders understand the troubles and needs of their communities better than anyone.

Kinship Projects include home environments for orphans and widows to live. Widows act as caregivers for the children in a loving, family setting.

100% of your donation enables Kinship Projects to offer long-term care and serve the community as relief centers, water sources, feeding programs, schools, medical clinics, and more.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Caregivers

Building awareness of the despair faced by children around the world and the ways in which their needs can be addressed. Providing resources that meet sustained spiritual, physical, social and emotional needs of children under our care. Sharing the message of the transforming power of Christ's love through words and action to each child. Implementing the Biblical principle of caring for widows through involving them in our orphan care homes, when it is possible. Partnering with other organizations to maximize efficiency through specialization. Fostering development efforts that bring about self-sufficiency of individual homes and the children raised in them. Maximizing the giving power of donors and sponsors through partnerships, matching grants and auditing programs.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
