Countries We Serve
There are more than 163 million orphans around the world. Orphan Outreach is working to improve the lives of orphans and at-risk children in Guatemala, Honduras, India and Russia through early intervention, quality education and evangelism.


Guatemala
Guatemala is located in Central America, bordering the North Pacific Ocean, between El Salvador and Mexico, and bordering the Gulf of Honduras (Caribbean Sea) between Honduras and Belize. Demographically, Guatemala is a young country with approximately 44 percent of the population under the age of 15 and more than 70 percent of Guatemalans live below the poverty level. UNICEF estimates that there are more than 370,000 orphans in Guatemala and at least 5,000 children live on the streets of the capital, abandoned by mothers who are too poor to keep them. In addition, the HIV/AIDS epidemic appears to be growing rapidly. Orphan Outreach is dedicated to improving the lives of orphan children in Guatemala.

Honduras
Honduras is a country that has been hit very hard by AIDS. It is estimated that 17,500 children are orphans because of the death of one or both parents, and many of these children are also living with HIV. The economic situation of the country has not improved, and the gap between rich and poor people is wider than it was four years ago.

Orphan Outreach is supporting orphans and at-risk children in Honduras through Christian education, humaitarian aid, early intervention and evangelism through short-term mission trips.

India
India is facing an accelerating threat from HIV, with more people infected with HIV than any other country in the world. Introduce intense poverty, famine, drought, natural disasters, and malaria, and it is no surprise that there are an estimated 15-25 million orphans in India. The number of children in India orphaned by AIDS alone is approaching two million, according to UN estimates. The impacts of the AIDS crisis have not yet begun to fully emerge in India, and AIDS-related orphaning is not yet occurring at a large scale. Yet, India has the largest number of AIDS orphans of any country in the world. This number is expected to more than double in five years, and the proportion of orphaned children will remain exceptionally high until 2020 or 2030.

The ministry of Orphan Outreach is dedicated to improving the lives of these children by giving them a hope for a brighter future through early intervention, education and evangelism.

Russia
There are more than 700,000 orphans living in 2,000 state-run orphanages in Russia alone. Statistics show that only one out of ten Russian orphans becomes a functional member of society. The others are lost to drugs, crime and suicide. Millions of Russian children are on the run living on the streets or in underground sewers desperately needing basic food, medicine and clothes. Orphan Outreach is working with orphans in Russia, particularly in the St. Petersburg and Leningrad regions to help them adjust to living a productive life after graduating out of the orphanage.
