The local church in every nation
standing as the first answer for vulnerable children

Membership in the CAFO Global Network is not first a chance to receive, but an opportunity to grow and guide a global movement together.

THE OPPORTUNITY

Visionary Christians in countries around the globe yearn to see the local church open wide as a place of welcome and care for orphaned and vulnerable children.

The CAFO Global Network aids these national leaders in their calling – working with them to connect and equip local churches, NGOs, and advocates for wise, effective care for vulnerable children in local communities.

THE WORK

By offering culturally-relevant resources, training and connections from around the world, the CAFO Global Network guides emerging movements to develop into effective, sustainable Bridge Networks.

While every local Bridge Network is unique, each serves as the hub of a vibrant local movement, connecting churches as well as NGOs, government agencies and other allies. Bridge Networks work especially to equip congregations to provide emotional, spiritual and practical support to adoptive, foster and biological families. They often lead awareness and advocacy campaigns, offer foster and adoptive family recruitment and training, guide churches in development of post-adoption/foster care support for families, and more.

THE ONGOING VISION

As part of the CAFO Global Network, each Bridge Network is encouraged not only to receive, but also to share with other networks. As a result, leaders both access and share excellent resources, training and connections around the world.

Guided by participating local leaders, the Global Network identifies critical needs, coordinates new resource development and delivery, and provides targeted support to help each network achieve its own unique vision and goals.

MEMBERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Local Networks may choose to join the CAFO Global Network as either a Movement Supporter or as a Bridge Network.

Bridge Network

Bridge Networks are non-competing entities that serve as a rallying point for churches and act as a liaison between those churches and other public and private NGOs and institutions engaged in child welfare. They play a variety of roles including, but not limited to, awareness and advocacy campaigns, recruitment, pre-adoption and pre-foster care training, post-adoptive and foster care support, local church ministry support and ongoing education.
