CAFO

Uniting 750 Churches & 190 NGOs

https://www.cafo.org

       

The Christian Alliance for Orphans unites 190+ respected organizations and over 650 church members.  Our joint initiatives inspire and equip Christians to live out effectively the Bible’s call to care for orphans and vulnerable children. Learn How

CAFO was birthed at a gathering of thirty-eight Christian leaders in 2004. Although serving in diverse fields, they carried a shared sense that God desired to call His people to step up decisively for orphans and foster youth. They pledged to “leave logos and egos at the door” to advance this vision in shared action.

The size and scope of CAFO’s work has grown significantly over the years, but the core mission remains the same. CAFO members join in coordinated initiatives that grow effective adoption, foster care and global orphan care rooted in the local church.  These include the annual CAFO Summit, the Orphan Sunday campaign, the Global Movements Initiative, the National Foster Care Initiative, the Applied Research & Best Practice Initiative, the National Church Ministry Initiative, and an array of other shared undertakings.

Without CAFO, many good ministries would still faithfully serve – yet often in isolation or even competition. Today, we get to see what is achieved when we labor together for a vision larger than any one of us could accomplish alone.

As CAFO helps Christians understand God’s call to care for vulnerable children and equips for effective response, the impact reaches far beyond a single program or met need.  Rather, an ever-growing community of passionate individuals, families, churches and organizations invest time, talent and treasure in a personal and sustained commitment to caring for children in the name of Jesus.

Collaborate, a forum for global leaders, is a Summit experience designed for global Christian leaders who are either leading national orphan care movements in their countries or desire to begin one. Join other national leaders from around the world to share expertise, make new connections, learn best practices and add your voice to CAFO Global Network projects and objectives that are key to vibrant, locally-led orphan care networks. Collaborate begins as a pre-Summit intensive and concludes with a post-Summit lunch and afternoon workshop.
