“Empowering local churches to care for local orphans in every country.”
The Christian Alliance for Orphans
CAFO equips pastors and leaders to create local church movements/networks that inspire adoption/fostering among local Christians.
The next step is to build the capacity of the network through training on adoption/fostering, parenting, caring for children struggling with trauma, and church support for families.
Then, locally-licensed NGOs are engaged to legally process placements and provide expert counseling and aid to help families thrive. In short, CAFO provides the framework, coaching, global network and tools to enable this process to succeed.
“The vision and support of CAFO has helped fuel movement across the continent, powerfully. African churches and families are saying, 'We will welcome these children God loves so much — even those that aren’t our relatives!'”
