Forgotten Fund
Description:
The Forgotten Fund is an unrestricted fund, assisting orphans and vulnerable children through special self-sustainability projects submitted by our transnational partners.
 
Additionally, because FCW ensures that 100 percent of all child sponsorship donations to go directly to sponsored children, the Forgotten Fund is necessary in order to provide for administrative, mailing and marketing costs associated with the FCW ministry.  It also helps to pay for the costs associated with yearly clothing shipments to India and the Ukraine.

Child Trafficking Initiatives
Description:

It is estimated that a child is trafficked around the world every 26 seconds. Some experts believe that 80 percent of all trafficked children face sexual exploitation and 19 percent are forced into labor. It is our goal at Forgotten Children Worldwide to help end trafficking through partnerships and initiatives.
 
  • Prevention Initiatives: Self-sustainability projects help mothers generate sustaining income that helps her provide for her children. Orphan homes give children who are extremely vulnerable to trafficking a place to call home and be protected. 
 
  • Rescue and Aftercare Initiatives: Construction of homes and dormitories that provide refuge for those that have been and are being rescued allow children to be loved, rehabilitated, and reformed through aftercare programs, counseling and education.

Dormitory Donation
Description:

Pastor Richard Okowi, one of FCW’s trusted partners in Uganda, rescued 14 young girls (ages 15-17) out of forced prostitution in the city of Kampala.

Currently,the girls are being housed in very cramped conditions, with all 14 of them living together in a space no bigger than a typical 1-car garage. As the child trafficking program expands, there is simply no room to house any more girls. By building safe and adequate housing, not only will our partners be able to provide rescued girls with a healthy, clean living space, but they will also be able to provide an environment where rescued girls can experience the healing they need in order to reenter society and earn a living on their own.

Well Project Donation
Description:
 
Clean Water
Because digging an adequate well can cost a village $10,000 (well over a decade's worth of wages), few areas have consistent access to drinking water that is free from life-threatening bacteria. According to the World Health Organization, lack of access to clean water kills one out of every five children, and 99 percent of those deaths are occurring in the developing world. Well-aware of these statistics, FCW works with transnational partners to drill boreholes and construct wells that will provide hundreds of children clean and safe drinking water.
 
Wellness 
FCW also focuses on other wellness initiatives and projects:
 
Multi-Vitamins: For about $1 a week, a child can receive a daily multivitamin that will aid in physical and mental development. These vitamins help to prevent illness like Vitamin A deficiency, which is associated with blindness, viral infections, and child mortality.
 
Deworming Pills: Intestinal worms are a major issue for children, especially where clean water cannot be found.  For $4 a year, a child will be given one deworming pill every six months, helping to prevent intestinal worms from stealing essential nutrients needed for basic childhood development and survival.
 
Mosquito Nets: For $10, a simple mosquito net can help prevent a child from contracting malaria--the number one killer of children in the world.

Orphan Home Donation
Description:
Orphan homes are small, intimate homes that house eight to twelve children. Children placed in orphan homes are loved and nurtured by house parents. Placement at an orphan home allows children to avoid the overcrowded environments of orphanages where it is difficult for children to receive the nurture and care needed to ensure a healthy well being.
 
FCW also funds other construction projects, including kitchens, dining halls, pavilions and security walls.

Chicken(s)

Donation amount: $1.00

Description:
$1: 100 pennies provides a family with one chicken. Just one chicken will produce enough eggs to give two children one egg per week.While that might not sound like much, one egg provides a child with natural antibiotics and protein, contributing to overall health and wellness.
 
$3:  For less than the cost of a gourmet coffee, $3 provides three chickens to one family, providing a child with an education, clothes, medicine, food and Christian discipleship for 365 days.

Self-Sustainability
Description:
Self-Sustainability projects help those in desperate poverty generate a self-sustaining income in order to provide for their children and community. These projects make a long-term impact on communities caring for orphans.
 
Heifer Farms - One heifer can produce enough milk to help 10 children per year with their education, clothing, food, first-aid medical, spiritual guidance and mentoring, and some English training.
 
Chicken Farms-. Three chickens will produce enough eggs to sponsor all the needs of a child for ONE year, including their education, clothes, medicine, food and spiritual guidance and mentoring.
 
Goat Ranches- Goats can provide much needed nutrition from milk and self-sustaining income for families caring for orphans, vulnerable children and those in poverty.   
 
Tailor Training- The opportunity for training equips women with sewing skills and resources, allowing them to generate an income. This income is significant in helping women provide for their children and guard against human trafficking.
 
*Other projects could include sheep shearing, jewelry-making, and transportation initiatives.

Sheep Rearing
Description:
 
In India, women face discrimination based on their caste and their economic status.  Many of them end up working as temple prostitutes or Devadasis, later discarded to the streets when their services are no longer needed.   
 
We have partnered with Pastor Solomon to empower these women, many of them single mothers, to live a dignified life of hope and fulfillment.  In time, they develop values of self-respect and gain freedom for themselves, and their children, from sexual exploitation.
 
We have a urgent need to provide funding for a sheep rearing project as a means for generating income.  Wool from sheep will be sold, helping these women provide the necessities for themselves and the children under their care.
 
The amount needed to successfully fund this project is $1436.00
 
Will you donate $5 to help single mothers care for their themselves and their children?
