our focus GOW is active in the following geographies:

  • 31 Million Orphans
  • 1/6 of Residents Live in a Slum
  • 10 Million Bonded Laborers
  • 4 Million Orphans
  • 50% Don't have any living Kin
  • 5.1 Million children are out of school

The children are just like our children. Only with a lot, lot less opportunities. They love to run. They love to play. They love to learn. And they long for someone to love them. They are just like our children.

Zack Guthrie

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

1 Corinthians 13

My heart has always been drawn to orphans and children in need, as well as widows. When I heard that GOW worked directly through their ministry in supporting and helping these women and children, I knew I had to be a part of that. And after traveling to India to see firsthand the impact of this ministry, I was deeply touched. I saw firsthand that GOW was having a major role in raising up lives that otherwise would have been discarded in the harsh reality of the life of the poor and forgotten in this nation.

Jennifer Humphrey

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
