About Us
Serving God by serving others

With your support, we seek to turn despair into hope by providing the best care for the world's poorest children.

Our vision is a world where no child has to endure the shame, indignity, and despair of poverty.

Since 1995, our supporters have helped to create that world by modeling God's love and helping children have stable lives.

Our kids receive support for education, healthcare, food, and shelter. You help transform children from being on the brink of despair, to having hope for their future. 





The word "action" in our name describes us perfectly.

Your gifts to Global Action are quickly used to help children with food, education, and healthcare. 

We are fast, because we work with local groups who know the neediest kids in their communities.

They make sure that kids are quickly helped in times of need.

Our founder, Dwaine Lee, served in ministry for 60 years. During that time he visited over 100 countries and saw a great need to help suffering children.

In order to help, he made friendships with people. He got to know the local churches and orphanages. Most importantly, he developed relationships with supporters like you.

The Encourager

Dwaine loved to encourage others and bring out the best in them. People loved being around him. Supporters around the world wanted to join him to provide hope for children in need.

Our newsletter and blog are called The Encourager. Dwaine used the newsletter to send out inspirational and uplifting messages to our supporters, as well as to Christian leaders around the world.

We are thankful for everyone who has joined us. We could not do this without you. 

This partnership of people continues to change lives around the world. 


We believe that the world's poorest kids should have the opportunity to live healthy and happy lives.

In Memorium

Our story starts way back in 1995 with a vision to make a difference in a hurting world.

Founder, Global Action International

Dwaine Lee, Global Action Founder


Our founder, Rev. Dwaine Lee, had a passion for God and a commitment to serving the poor.

After pastoring for over 30 years and traveling to more than 100 countries, he founded Global Action International in 1995 and Children's Christian Lifeline in 2010. His goal was to help make a direct impact in the lives of the hurting, vulnerable, and sick.

Rev. Lee passed away in 2021, but his vision lives on through our dedicated volunteers, generous supporters, and the thousands of children served by this ministry.


     I believe the following scripture to be the backbone of our commitment to make a difference in the world,

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the earth."  (Acts 1:8).

Just as the first Christians started out by spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to local believers and then branched out to neighboring communities and other nations, we share that commitment today.
