Supporting World Orphans
South Ridge Church has supported the work of Tacy Layne, a local support-raised writer/editor for World Orphans, since 2015. World Orphans works in 12 different countries to equip, inspire, and mobilize local churches to care for orphaned children, vulnerable families, and refugees in their communities.
In an effort to provide long-term stabilization for families, World Orphans works through local churches to economically empower orphan caregivers and single mothers. Earlier this year, 19 caregivers from two churches in Ethiopia completed business training. The women in this program have gone from being unable to save money to not only saving for their futures, but also owning their own businesses. Business ownership ensures that these women have reliable income to provide for their families.
