An orphanage is a large family.

Sponsor an Orphanage

Can you imagine being responsible for raising 75-100 children? You can share that responsibility. Be an orphanage sponsor.

1 group photo of all the children at the orphanage each year

1 newsletter about the orphanage each year

“We are overwhelmed by your kind support. Children are growing healthy and stronger because of the extra nutritious food like milk and eggs that your are providing by sponsoring our orphanage.”

– Uttam, orphanage administrator


  • Why sponsor an orphanage rather than a child?

    Some donors may not wish to have a one-on-one relationship with a particular child. We are equally grateful to those individuals who make a regular monthly donation to help an orphanage. When you sponsor an orphanage, we will send you a group photo of the children and a newsletter about the orphanage. You will receive one of each every year.

  • How will my sponsorship help the orphanage?

    The orphanages we support always need extra funding for infrastructure, staff for running the orphanage, medical expenses, and educational expenses for the children. Your donation can help give these children a happy and healthy childhood and a solid education. Experience the joy of uplifting all the children.

  • Can I terminate my sponsorship at any time?

    Yes. You do not sign a contract with us and you are under no obligation to continue your support. You can cancel sponsorship at any time. To cancel, please call or email to let us know that you want to end the relationship you have with the orphanage.

  • How is my sponsorship donation used?

    World’s Children is committed to honoring your stated preferences for sponsorship donations. In some circumstances, such as an unforeseen change in a partner organization, your contribution will be used for the greatest need of vulnerable children living in poverty.

Still Need Help?

Board Member

Loretta met David Purviance on a chance trip in 2006, while seeking to be of service to the vulnerable children in India.  Since then, Loretta has been a longtime supporter of World’s Children as a donor, sponsor, and previous Board member.  She had the wonderful opportunity to return to India twice to visit several World’s Children orphanages, and even identified the Happy Home orphanage and petitioned to bring it into the WC family. Loretta raised funds to build a well at Happy Home, where it now has clean water for all the children and staff.

Loretta currently works with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services as the Program Manager for the six Medical Hubs – the child abuse evaluation clinics for the County. She also serves as the Program Manager for the County’s Gender Health Program, serving patients seeking gender-affirming care in a safe environment.  Before her work with Los Angeles County, Loretta spent many years serving non-profit organizations in CA and in MN, her last as the Executive Director of a statewide non-profit in MN. She has a long history of volunteer work including Board Member and Board Chair service, grant writing and fundraising experience, program development, and creative leadership, all serving our most vulnerable and disenfranchised populations.

Loretta holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Services, a Master’s degree in Spiritual Psychology, and a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership.  She lives in Los Angeles County with her partner, Myck, and their rescue kitties, Scooter and Thunder.
