Through some great international partnerships, Watermark's people can make a lifelong impact - and build relationships with a kid halfway around the world.
For more information on the usefulness of orphan programs, see our blog posts on the topic:

ALARM ORPHAN SPONSORSHIP
Watermark partners with ALARM to support 600 orphans and other at-risk children in Uganda. We pay school fees for all children in the ALARM program. Most of the children have lost parents and are living with relatives or in a child-headed home; others are living with a parent who is HIV-positive and unable able to care for their children. The ALARM orphan program connects each child to a local church and an individual mentor and provides discipleship, counseling and trauma healing, purity training, hygiene training, conflict resolution venues through Peace Clubs, and other resources and mentorship as needed.
All 594 children in the ALARM Orphan program are currently being sponsored by members of the Watermark family.
If you are interested in sponsoring a child, please consider partnering with Mission of Hope Haiti (see below) or Compassion International.
MISSION OF HOPE HAITI ORPHAN SPONSORSHIP
Mission of Hope Haiti is a ministry that serves a region of Haiti north of Port-au-Prince through a school, an orphanage, food distribution, and local construction that builds homes for families. MOH also provides medical care to the region, including providing prosthetic limbs to those who need them.
Watermark families can directly sponsor kids to help provide a Christ-centered education and a meal each day. Visit mohhaiti.org/child-sponsorship to find out more.
