Who is Open Home Africa?
Open Home Africa’s mission is to help families and singles open their homes to children in need of loving homes. OHA strives toward a loving home for every child.
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.Psalm 68:5
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.James 1:27
Open Home Africa’s 3 Principles
AWARENESS – LEADS TO ACTION
Before taking action, you must first understand the need. We want to help you see through the eyes of the social worker and the child who needs a loving home. You will learn their stories and the challenges they face so that you can take your next step.
ENCOURAGEMENT – YOU ARE NOT ALONE
You want to embark on the journey of adoption or fostering a child but yourself feeling overwhelmed, don’t know where to start. You are not alone. There is hope, and we will bring you resources and encouragement to help you.
ADVOCACY – YOU CAN BE A VOICE
You know the need is overwhelming, and you want to engage and encourage others to open their homes. We are ready to equip you to be a voice for the adoption and foster care community so that you can mobilise others to meet the need.
