"A dream you dream alone is only a dream, but a dream you dream together is a reality."
An Orphan's Wish began in February 2008 by people who share the same heart for orphans and for the children who would never have a chance at adoption. An Orphans Wish’s first project was in Gulin, China, and operated for almost 6 years. Working in partnership with Helping Hands Volunteer Association and the Trower family, we were able to provide funding for medical care, education, physical therapy, club foot casting treatment and wonderful care for the hundreds of children we were able to care for during this time. Currently, An Orphans Wish is in the process of getting it’s second project off the ground in China.
An Orphan's Wish, a registered 501 (c)3 corporation, is an all volunteer foundation. We have established a wonderful network of volunteers throughout the United States and other countries who dedicate their time and energy to helping orphaned children. Our overhead costs are extremely low. About 96% of every donation received goes directly to our projects in China to support the children we serve.
We promote and encourage the partnership of the local Chinese community and local businesses. As we strive to increase their awareness of the needs of these children through education, we are seeing a steady increase in this community's commitment and dedication to helping these children.
At An Orphan's Wish we believe in creating awareness through training and educating our Chinese staff and partners. It is our ultimate goal that this project be completely run by the citizens of China.
