The World Orphan Fund has built homes for special-needs orphans and children of all ages in Honduras. In the coming year, we hope to build an entire orphanage for sexually abused girls in Guatemala and expand a special- needs orphanage in Honduras.

The World Orphan Fund was founded in 2011 after a 20-year-old youth leader from Gainesville asked a stranger to visit an orphanage in Honduras. In just two years we've visited 2,800 orphans at 19 orphanages, and have funded an average of one new project every month, digging wells, feeding children, hiring teachers and creating vocational programs.
In Georgia we help our neighbors. No one understands that better our Governor and First Lady. They've spent a lifetime stepping up to help those in need in our state. When they were asked to Keynote the World Orphan Fund Gala they were more than happy to participate.
Attend the Georgia Gala!
