For almost 25 years we were making progress against poverty. Then it started to get worse again because of inflation, COVID, and wars.

Asia and the Middle East have been hit very hard. In India, COVID devastated families, increasing the number of orphans by 1.9 million. In total, India has over 30 million orphans.

Jordan hosts one million refugees who fled the war in Syria.

With your help, we aim to help as many children as possible find hope for a brighter future. In all we do, we share and model God’s love.


Did you know? Some info about Asia & The Middle East

Helping Children Rise Above Poverty

India accounts for 30% of all children around the world living in extreme poverty.

Youth unemployment rates in the Middle East have been the highest in the world for over 25 years.

For example, half of the youth in Jordan could not find jobs in 2021.

Asia has the world’s most orphans. India alone has over 30 million, with many facing a lack of education, food, and health care.

Serving where the need is great

Icon - India
India has high levels of malnutrition (38.4% of children are stunted) and poor learning outcomes (only 42.5% of children in grade three can read a grade one text). However, India’s growth over the last two decades has contributed phenomenally to global human development. Extreme poverty in India reduced to 21%, infant mortality has more than halved, and two million fewer children are out-of-school.
Icon - Jordan
Poverty in Jordan disproportionately affects the refugee populations. The number of Syrians in Jordan living below the country’s poverty line is 78%.  Jordan has one of the youngest populations in the world, with 63% of its population under the age of 30. During COVID, almost 50% of youth were unemployed. The situation for girls is even more challenging, as Jordan has the third lowest female labor force participation rate in the world. 
Global Action in Asia & The Middle East

Meet a local partner that is making a difference

The best way to help kids is through local organizations. That is why we work with local churches, orphanges, and ministries. They know the kids around them. They know how to help quickly.
