Widows & Orphans

Widows & Orphans

The Widows and Orphan Fund exists to fulfil James 1:27, as well as numerous other commands in the Bible to care for Widows and Orphans. World Challenge, in obedience to the Word, reaches out to these severely impoverish and abandoned people groups with the message of hope found in Jesus Christ. This is carried out practically by the careful selection of needy individuals through our local partners. These partners often utilize a network of local church volunteers to visit, share the gospel, bring to church and meet practical daily survival needs such as food, medicine and shelter for the widow and orphan. In addition, job training and income generating programs are provided to help participants find a measure of self-sufficiency.

World Challenge’s partners are continuing to help families and widows who refuse to leave their homeland, even as it is torn apart by war.

God is reaching and restoring the lives of widows, one elderly woman in particular, through unexpected means: a posho vegetable shop. 

God is consoling the broken hearts of those who have lost loved ones and giving them hope for the future.

World Challenge’s partners in Kenya are helping abandoned kids create a better future. 

God is a healer who knows every way in which our heart, mind and body is burdened by the curse of sin.
