What's An Orphan Care Project?
Both Hands helps churches & orphan/foster care ministries fund their missions through completing a service project helping a widow in their community.
An Orphan Care project works just like an Adoption Fund project, except the funds raised go towards orphan causes, such as an ministry's mission fund or a church's orphan care fund.
Who Can Do An Orphan Care Project?
How It Works
Gather a Team
Both Hands serves widows & orphans, but each project also brings communities together! Every project starts with a project leader that gathers a Core Team of volunteers to serve and fundraise for the cause.
Find a Widow
Widows are often overlooked in our communities and need help, but aren't sure how to find it. Both Hands will help you identify a widow in your community to serve for your project.
Serve for a Day
Now the fun begins! You and your team will serve your widow for a day while building community. Both Hands will coach you through getting supplies donated for tasks such as painting, cleaning, landscaping and decluttering.
Raise Funds for Your
You and your team raise funds for the cause by sending fundraising letters and sharing your web page. Both Hands covers our operating costs through private donors, so NO funds raised by you and your team are deducted for Both Hands' operating costs.
Our Orphan Care projects raise an average of $10,051* for orphan causes!
*Based on the average of every orphan care project completed in 2023. Projects are not guaranteed to raise the average.
