About Us

The vision for an orphanage in the Akwa Ibom state of Nigeria was formed in September 2015. In December 2020, the support of Church of Christ in Roseville, Minnesota brought that vision to life. Our goal was to provide care for orphans, vulnerable and less-priveledged children. Bolstered, our activities have grown to include feeding, clothing, educational assistance, and ministry.
