Mission

What we're about: Empowering compassion. Since 1993 we’ve been empowering locally-led, mercy-based programs in the developing world. Who we help: We serve orphans, child labor victims, and young trafficking survivors through 9 resident-care homes and 12 education centers in Asia and Africa. Why we're different: Rather than spending precious resources deploying Western workers, we’re empowering existing local leadership with funding, oversight, and small business development.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Peace Gospel works to address the core issues of poverty and the symptoms thereof, namely, the orphan crisis and the human trafficking crisis in the countries where we operate.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

Orphan Care

We serve orphans through 9 resident-care homes, providing a secure space to dwell in a family environment, nutritious meals daily, medical care, and quality education.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
At-risk youth

Our human trafficking response programs take a four-prong holistic approach in responding to the human trafficking crisis: we prevent human trafficking through education and orphan care, we work with local authorities to rescue trafficking victims, and we rehabilitate survivors with the goal of restoring them to a life full of hope. Our programs consist of trafficking survivor residential care and rehabilitation, orphan care, education, and entrepreneurial development in India, Nepal, Uganda, and the Philippines. All net proceeds from the sales of our program participants’ handmade crafts directly support their programs.

Population(s) Served
At-risk youth
Victims and oppressed people

We operate 4 schools and 8 after-school care programs serving orphans, trafficking survivors, and at-risk children. Where we cannot operate our own schools, we provide all that our program beneficiaries need to stay enrolled in local schools.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to multiply donor funds through native-led small business projects like agriculture, animal stockbreeding or other culturally relevant small businesses. We're continually seeking to improve and expand this model of “giving multiplication" with small businesses which will produce the resources necessary to care for more orphans, rehabilitate more women recovering from human trafficking, and educate more at-risk children. It's our hope that through this method, our teams in Asia & Africa can become more empowered in their work to care for those who have no hope.

Thanks to your support, we currently...

• provide resident care for over 331 orphans in 9 homes in Asia and Africa
• operate 4 schools and 8 after-school care programs reaching 900+ children
• operate 2 rehabilitation homes for survivors of human trafficking
• operate 2 trade schools to empower survivors of human trafficking
• serve over 720,000 fresh meals to children in our programs each year
• train an average of 576 girls how to avoid the dangers of human trafficking each year
• combat frequent power outages at our project locations with solar initiatives

...in a way that's working toward sustainability and creates a strong sense of ownership among our native teams.

We have an immense network of local leadership in place on the field, a healthy donor network empowering their programs, and have invested over $1 million in infrastructure investments in school buildings, farmlands, and housing facilities.

We first partnered with our India native team in 1993 when we started conducting relief outreach to children in an urban slum colony. As a result of encountering destitute orphans sometimes enslaved and usually engaged in child labor with no chance at an education much less adequate nutrition, we felt called to launch our Boys Home in 1997 (where we have employed a cumulative 18 staff members to date) and our Girls Home in 1998 (where we have employed 23 staff members to date).

Since then, we have provided complete residential care to 329 boys and 478 girls. India has more orphans than any other nation: an estimated 35 million children. Thus, we are extremely grateful for the support which has enabled us to keep our orphan homes in South India in operation — they are safe harbors from the dangers of child labor and trafficking, offering our orphans hope through nutrition, education, and a loving, nurturing environment centered on the Biblical principals of God’s love.

We first partnered with our Myanmar native team in 2008 when we launched our orphan care program, which over the years has grown to encompass 5 orphan homes where we have provided complete residential care to 165 orphans and employed 12 staff members. In 2010, we purchased our 12-acre rice farm, which during its history has yielded 82.6 tons of rice. We have always been very thankful for this good crop that has provided a key staple in the diets of our orphans and staff in our 5 orphan homes, a great blessing to their health.

In 2012, we began our ‘She Has Hope’ rehabilitation home which has been home to Nepalese girls rescued from human trafficking situations. There they have received counseling and medical care, room & board, literacy classes, and become proficient in several craft-making, seamstress, and gardening skills through daily coursework offered by our full-time teachers. Their crafts are sold at SheHasHope.org to supplement the program’s funding. During the 6 years of this program, 160 girls have been rescued and lived at the home, 150 girls have graduated from our skill development program, and we have documented cases of 60 girls who have started their own tailoring businesses. Many more have gone on to find jobs related to the skills they acquired at the home.

Many more stories like these can be found on our website.

What's next? We see more progress toward sustainability in our programs and better Stateside support for fundraising and program oversight in the years ahead. We look forward to making the journey with your support!
