About Gideon Orphanage Home
On this page
Gideon Orphanage Home is a subsidiary of GIVING HANDS, it
is a non governmental orphanage home approved by the Ogun
State Government. Gideon Orphanage has a vision to help
take orphans, abused and abandoned children off the streets
through rehabilitation, reformation and reintegration.
Giving them better opportunities in life with regards to:
These opportunities will be provided in a home filled
with love and care, enabling the children become valuable
members of society.
- Portable Water
Rehabilitation: The children would be rehabilitated
under the most conducive environment and shown unconditional
Reformation: This would be achieved through
education and extra curricula activities. Education is the
best investment any child could have. This project is designed
to help train the children as far as the university level in
any chosen career of their choice, with the help of a counselor.
Reintegration: Some of the children would
be reintegrated into the society through adoption and fostering.
We hope to partner with the Ogun State Government, Corporate
bodies, Religious groups and Social philanthropic organisations
(for the adoption and fostering process).
We strongly believe these children need to live in a homely
environment with lots of love and care, this would enable them
adjust well in adulthood.
In addition we hope to remove the stigma attached to the "orphan
status" by creating a leverage that will promote equality
amongst these children and their peers all over the world.
Our Challenges include funds, facilities and
infrastructures to provide quality care, education and support
these children deserve. As we progress with this great vision,
we trust God that you would be a part of this noble cause to
put a smile on the faces of the children.
We invite you to be a part of our dream of a greater Nigeria
devoid of street urchins, beggars and homeless children labouring
for little or nothing in abominable conditions.
