What makes Abode for Children unique?
We support two schools and orphanages, providing wholistic support to children in dire circumstances. We work with them and their families to provide a safe atmosphere and life-changing education that will help children to become confident and productive citizens who can raise the standard of living for themselves and their community.
Sponsor a Child
Our orphanages and schools in Nigeria and India are equipping children to improve their lives and to have a positive impact on their community as a whole for generations to come. By educating nearly 1,000 children each year, we are preparing them for brighter futures as successful, productive citizens who will positively impact their local economy and raise the standard of living for entire community.
