Where ORA New Zealand Works
UGANDA - CHILD FOCUSED RURAL COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
With the support of New Zealand donors ORA Uganda partners with communities where poverty and HIV/AIDS have eroded hope and left a large number of orphans. We work alongside the ORA Uganda team to nurture and educate their orphans and vulnerable children, helping them to reach their God-given potential. Our vision is to equip, inspire and empower Ugandans to help other Ugandans; together working towards a sustainable future.
UGANDA - RESCUING STREET CHILDREN
Hope Foundation is rescuing and rehabilitating children at risk of being trafficked while living on the streets of Uganda. ORA New Zealand is partnering with Hope Foundation as they give hope to these children by giving them a home and love, education, health care, mentoring, and if at all possible reconciliation with their extended families.
KENYA - SOCIAL BUSINESS
Chafisi provides education for orphans and vulnerable children in a village near the coast in Kenya. ORA New Zealand focuses on the future self-sustainability of this project, including a market garden social business.
In Eastern Europe we are working in Moldova to establish safe homes for teens at risk of being trafficked, and with a pilot agricultural - microcredit loan - agricultural social business project.
We support ORA Bulgaria's human trafficking prevention education programme, talking to at risk women and children in orphanages and Roma communities. ORA Bulgaria is raising awareness of the human trafficking; prevention is a great tool for minimizing the number of the human trafficking victims from Bulgaria to Western Europe and beyond.
South East Asia
In Myanmar we are partnering with Project: AK-47 to get kids as young as six years old released from drug cartels and armies.
