Fund a grant to “patron” one of our aged out orphans as they serve in a GLOW project and use their time and talents to “GO LOVE OTHERS WELL”. It is our desire to empower our orphan grads to serve those around them and find fulfillment in giving back to those in need. Overseen by GLOW Team member, Tanya Kurilo, they will partner with local humanitarian organizations who are serving Ukrainians during this time. Our application process for each grad will ensure they are using their time and resources in the best way possible. The grants will provide for basic needs of each participating orphan grad.
Why we serve orphan grads: GLOW started in response to the orphan crisis, as we saw how kids ages 16-18 were dismissed from institutional living and ill-equipped to handle the challenges of adult life without the aid of family. The following statistics propelled us to do something to help:
Orphans that are not adopted and aged out of the system are left to fend for
themselves. Left alone, orphans who age-out of the orphanage system at ages 15 -18, can fall prey to horrific statistics:
– 60% of females end up in prostitution
– 70% of males end up incarcerated
– 10% commit suicide by the age 18
The average life expectancy of an orphan grad is 30 years old.
Our GLOW team has been journeying with orphan grads since 2016, helping them to evade these statistics. Our grant program is one more step in encouraging independence while still supporting these grads with what they need to survive.
Suggested Sponsorship: $50-$5000 one time gift or ongoing monthly.
