So, this week we finally completed the process of documenting the kids in Ogoloi. We want to give a huge shout out to the team at Children’s Hope Chest for working to get this done.
This is a lengthy process, and necessarily so. When a village like Ogoloi learns that westerners are planning to provide support for orphans in the area, a lot of people might be tempted to send their kids to receive support who are not actually qualified.
Now, to be honest, most kids in this region (with their parents still living) most certainly would benefit from support through Hope Chest, but a lot of care is taken to ensure that the kids with the most dire circumstances are cared for at the Care Points first.
So each of the children are documented and their home/ family/ living circumstances are independently verified. In any case, it has taken quite a while, and we are thrilled to be in a position to move on to the next phase of our “adoption” of these kids and this village.

Until the website for Ogoloi is up and running we are posting photos and brief info of kids who are not yet sponsored on the Ogoloi Facebook page. Please visit and “Like” the page so that we can keep you updated on how the village progresses and our upcoming trips to the region.

Read: THE STORY OF OGOLOI to learn how we came to start this process.
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
– Matthew 25
