Mission Statement


Forgotten Voices is demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ by equipping local churches in southern Africa to meet the physical and spiritual needs of children orphaned by AIDS in their communities. 
 
When Jesus spoke the command to care for widows and orphans, we believe that He meant what He said.  In Africa, this is the single greatest thing anyone can do.  As communities continue to be literally desolated by the HIV/AIDS virus, surviving children have turned to the church for help and hope.  In a place where death and brokenness are the hallmark of existence, Forgotten Voices is on a mission to provide our African partners with the support they need to be agents of love and reconciliation to the nearly 2 million orphaned children in their own towns and villages.
 
Overview of Ministry Activity
 
We are a group of people that care deeply for the hopes and dreams of our local church friends in southern Africa who work hard every day, caring for vulnerable children. They spend their days and nights crying out to God for someone to hear their voices and join them in the work God has called them to -- championing the cause of kids. 
 
Our team is dedicated to sharing their stories and helping provide funding/networking/resources to equip the local church to respond in love through unique, custom responses to the plight of children orphaned by AIDS in southern Africa.
 
Plans and Goals
 
Our Vision is to empower children orphaned by AIDS and their communities by:
 
• Strengthening the work of pastors and local churches through education, leadership development, and the provision of financial support.
Committing to scalable projects that can be sustained through local resources.
Engaging our partners to participate in the mission through service, prayer support and financial contributions.
• Being a witness and agent of hope to encourage local communities and pastors and partners to provide an expanded vision of the possibilities for ministry.
