THE FOUNDERS STORY
In Spring of 2007, Brittany and Christina met while studying at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Over the years they became close friends, and college roommates, and built a friendship which they shared their faith and hearts with each other. After graduation both went their separate ways, as Brittany pursued her career in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Christina in Atlanta, Georgia; not knowing that one day God would make a way to bring them back together, to help with furthering His Kingdom. In October 2012, they met Tiffany Smiling and God joined them together to not only become great friends but inspire one another to pursue the dreams in their hearts. ORPHANS.
In October 2012, they established a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called Project Orphans. Their hearts behind Project Orphans are ones that are pure, they believe strongly that God has called them to live a full life, and in doing so, giving is a major part. God is clear throughout His word, what His feelings are on caring for orphans. James 1:27 says, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress.” All God needs to accomplish His purpose on earth, are human vessels willing to step out.
Project Orphans was founded to be an organization that builds dreams and restores lives. We will not build orphan communities on our own; we will walk alongside the local church and community to help them meet their own needs, build their own dreams, and empower them to stop the cycle of poverty. We will take risks and risk it all for God’s glory to be known - world changers are first and foremost, risk takers and big dreamers.
