Orphans & Widows Education Care Nonprofit

What We Do

We support and promote the education of Orphans and Widows in Africa

School Supplies

We are providing school supplies as we understand the cost of these supplies can result in economic hardships on families. It is our goal to assist those families and the children still in need of academic resources.

Donate Goods

Do you have too much of something? Not want an item anymore? Consider looking into your homes for new and gently used clothing, shoes, books, electronics or computers, and toys. By donating them to us, you can be sure they’ll be given to local children in need who will be more than happy to receive them. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Fund the Cause

Your financial support and donations for orphans and widows sustain our work year-round. A gift of just $10 enables us to impact the lives of countless children and widows. Any contribution big or small is welcomed and considerably appreciated.

YOUR DONATIONS AND CONTRIBUTIONS WILL ALLEVIATE SUFFERING ORPHANS AND STRUGGLING WINDOWS BY INSTILLING HOPE AND A PEACE OF MIND TO THOSE REACHED BY YOUR KINDNESS.

Our Purpose

"To bring a smile in the hearts of those Children and Women and provide them kindness through education and support."
Anything is possible when love and support comes first.

Orphans & Widows Education Care is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to do everything in our power to support underaged children that no longer living with parents/ guardians and women who have lost their spouses and can no longer sustain themselves in harsh conditions.

We as an organization, come together and strive to give orphans and widows hope by aiding them with a sense of belonging, integrating them with caring people and above all portraying that love and support are out there regardless of circumstance.

"We learned that orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes."

— David Platt
