There are 163,000,000 orphans in the world today. Without help almost all are destined to a life of poverty, exploitation, or crime.
But, true holistic care from committed and caring adults can change everything.
- Spiritual and physical care provide the foundation necessary to grow strong.
- Education breaks generations of demoralizing and back-breaking poverty.
- Emotional care responds to the crushing weight of trauma.
- Social skills bring confidence to navigate a chaotic and unfamiliar world.
We can’t do this alone.
No person, community, organization, or government can end the orphan crisis by themselves, but we can do it together. It’s an overwhelming, exhilarating, humbling call. We won’t stop until every child is known and loved.

5-Point Child Development Plan
We long to see sustainability of the orphan – children who grow to be dependent on Jesus, interdependent in their communities, and independent adults. To that end, Back2Back’s 5-Point Child Development Plan centers around providing deep, holistic care to each child we serve. By providing holistic care, rather than merely meeting physical needs, we can truly help orphaned and vulnerable children experience restoration.
To Back2Back, providing spiritual care means helping each child understand the love and protection of their heavenly Father. Through opportunities for spiritual growth, such as discipleship and Bible study, we empower each child to discover his or her tremendous significance as an individual. Further, we pray and guide children to realize their unique purpose in the grand story God is writing.
Back2Back partners with children’s homes and marginalized communities to improve the quality of physical care for children. We help meet basic needs, such as regular medical and dental care, nutritious meals, warm clothing, clean water and safe shelter.
When children have access to quality education, they are significantly more likely to become self-sustaining individuals who give back to their community. To see this goal realized, we provide each child with the tools needed to succeed, assisting with tuition fees, tutoring children who are struggling academically, and even offering full college scholarships to children who participate in Back2Back’s Hope Education Program. We invest in the future of each child, enabling them to reach their academic goals so that they might ultimately break free from the cycle of poverty.
Many of the children we serve suffer from psychological issues as a result of abandonment, past abuse and neglect. By living alongside them, we earn their trust and begin a dialogue of recovery. We address issues such as anxiety, depression, and attachment disorders by providing trauma-informed caregivers and staff, and by offering opportunities for children to seek healing through counseling.
Back2Back recognizes the need for positive social interaction. We encourage each child to pursue personal growth by offering training in vital life skills, such as conflict resolution, family values, stewardship, work ethic, independent living skills, community interaction and interpersonal communication. By mentoring children in these areas, and modeling healthy relationships, we help them flourish relationally.
