Your Sponsorship of $35 per month provides food, clothing, living expenses, and education for one orphan or needy child in Southeast Asia.
Sponsors are encouraged to write to their children several times a year. The letters are then hand-delivered by VBB mission teams. All of the sponsored children love to receive letters, especially from a foreign country. Imagine the delight an abandoned child must feel when he discovers there is someone who cares for him and is praying for him!
Your Sponsorship of $35* provides basic necessities such as housing, food and education for a children’s home in need.

Started in May of 2010, Hope Development Center is a home in Yangon for unprivileged children in the slum area of Hmawbi. It is also for the children of missionaries and pastors whose education can suffer because of the parent’s call to serve in remote villages where there are no schools. This has been a great blessing for those called to ministry. They are trained in the Word of God and offered a good education. The hope is that these children when grown will be mighty witnesses of Christ to their own people. Recently this home has had an increase in children and so we are asking for more home sponsors.
For $35 a month, your donation will provide food, housing, clothes, school uniform, school fees, books and a Bible. Please write "Hope Development Center" in the Home Name in the link below to support these children. May God bless them, and God bless those who support them!
Shekinah Children's Home
We have the opportunity to help care for fifty-eight children at Shekinah Children’s Home in Myanmar (Burma) who have been forced to flee their villages due to violence. The children were formerly living at a refugee camp in Thailand but have now been in Burma for the last three years. The children’s home in the Karenni refugee camp did not have enough support and so some of the children had to leave. The other children came from a home where there have been attacks since spring 2018. The children lost their homes as their villages were attacked and the children were sent as IDPs (internally displaced persons) into the jungle with their parents. There are no schools available for such children.
These precious children need proper food, clothing and an education. They need to be in a place where they are loved, can learn about Jesus and can heal from their pain. To care for these fifty-eight children, we need to raise 50,000 Thai Baht or $1,540 each month. If 58 people would sponsor one child for $30.00 a month, we would have enough support to sustain the home. Or maybe you are able to give a one-time gift. Would you prayerfully consider being a part of supporting the Shekinah Children’s Home? Any amount that you can give will help give these children a future filled with hope and promise.
Once a month the children are allowed to use a soccer field to play soccer. When they are done playing they pray for peace in their country. Would you join in prayer with them and believe God with them that they will live to see peace in Myanmar?

Esther’s Home (also known as Amar Thapa) is situated in Kathmandu in a nice, walled compound, which also houses a church and a Christian school for more than 125 kids. The children from the home attend the Christian school where they learn scripture verses and sing Christian worship songs to Jesus.
The pastor and his wife who started this home have a big heart for the children in Nepal especially for those who have been orphaned or abandoned.
The kids proudly show off their dorms where each child has a handmade quilt from America on their bunk beds. Each child has a small cupboard where his clothes are kept. The girl’s dorm is brightly painted and has flowers and decorations on the walls. The boys prefer to be outside playing soccer. Scripture verses are on the walls of the school written in English and Nepalese. The children are grateful to live in a clean home and sleep in a clean bed and have adults who love and care for them. But most of all, they are grateful for what Jesus has done in their lives. Thank you for helping to bring the hope of our Savior Jesus Christ to these precious children!
Safe Haven Children's Home
Vision Beyond Borders has distributed over 2,460 Bibles in 42 different villages in Pakistan. Now, VBB is partnering with a Pakistani family to build an orphanage in Pakistan to rescue street children. We want to provide them with a Christian home where they can learn life skills and learn about Jesus Christ.
The goal of this project is to reach out to those without a father and without a home. It is on our hearts that we reach out to these children with open helping hands to show God’s love to them. We want to give them the opportunity to grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ as well as be brought in to a home to learn their value and where they belong. We are starting an orphanage in a village to rescue children from the streets. We pray that God provides us with the funding to do so as well as staff to run the Children’s home full time.
There are about 1.5 million street kids in Pakistan today. Over half of these children are runaways forced out of their homes from abuse and living in poverty. The children that are not sold into prostitution make a living by washing cars, shoe shining, or begging for money. They suffer from many illnesses as they do not have proper health services to tend to their needs. With your help we can reduce the number of kids in the streets, giving them a loving home where they have the opportunity to grow in Christ and learn basic life skills.The street children in Pakistan are in need of love and care to survive. They are in desperate need of medical attention, and a safe place to call home.
Ramesh is a brother of Bimala, and he works at prison ministry and once Bimala went to prison to distribute foods for the prisoners, and there she saw the children of the prisoners. So, she talked with Ramesh and planned about working to help those children.
Since July 2015, Asha Nepal has been helping children of incarcerated parents. Due to their fathers being in prison, the children had no support from their village. Some of the children have no mother or family, and were not able to get their basic needs met. We started this branch with only two children, then, many letters were mailed to us and presently we have 20 children. We have provided them with their basic needs, a good education and other additional needs too. We are also teaching them about Christ’s love.
Now it has been two years of this branch office, and we are still in a growing phase. The government offices are slowly recognizing us and involving us in their programs too. The children are in a good state, they are already used to our rules and discipline. They are very well behaved and we are happy to help them. Their parents are very thankful towards us that we are helping their children’s future. The Asha Nepal team is very thankful to Vision Beyond Borders for your support and prayers so we can help these children.
[O]ur children are very good at worshipping, They have Bible devotions every morning and evening. They also have a weekly Bible study at their church.
Saramati Hall I began by faith in 2012 with three children. Our contacts (a husband and wife team) began praying about educating and discipling a few Naga children who Lord willing would later become leaders in their villages. Against all odds, many enormous challenges and with faith in God they began Saramati Hall I. They now have eleven children (representing six different tribes) living at their home in Insein Township in Yangon. These children are from the far away Naga Hills. In May 2018, ten more children arrived to move into Saramati 2. This home still needs to be finished and funds are needed to complete the home (bathrooms, kitchen, water tank, septic tank, and beds). Presently there are 11 children in SH-I and 10 children in SH-II plus 2 wardens. So, there are total 23 of them comprised of various sub-tribes of the Naga such as Konyak, Maguri, Thangkhul, Tangshang, Machen, Lainawng, Solo, Khamiungan.
Nagas are a tribal people group inhabiting northwest Myanmar spread out between Kachin State and Sagaing Division. In India, they are found in Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Assam and present Nagaland states. Their land has been used by various Insurgencies for hideouts by which fact the government of Burma neglected them. The first American missionaries came to present Nagaland state in India 150 years ago. Until then the Nagas people were all animists. It is taking a long time to spread Christianity among the Nagas due to lack of education, communication systems, and different sub tribal dialects. There are nearly forty Naga villages where the Gospel has not yet been preached. Saramati is the name of the highest mountain shared by both India Nagaland and Myanmar Naga hills. Our contact’s vision and prayer is that the Nagas will aim very high and be the highest mountain that cannot be hidden for the sake of Christ; that they will be recognized and appreciated by all and that the children will grow in stature, wisdom and the fear of the Lord.
After hearing of Saramati Hall 1 and 2 many of the Naga people are now interested in sending their children to a Christian boarding home but they cannot pay for their food and lodging. Your monthly support helps to provide shelter, food, clothing, school fees and a Bible for these children. We praise the Lord for a place where these children can come to grow and learn. At Saramati Hall these children are being educated while being taught the Word of God and shown the love of Jesus. Thank you for helping to bring the hope of our Savior Jesus Christ to these dear children!
Winner Educare Land Expansion Project
Location: Myanmar (Burma)
Purpose: Provide a safe place for the children at risk of being sold as child soldiers in Burma to be cared for in a Gospel-centered environment.

NOTE: Land has been purchased and initial construction is done but this is still a need for registration/taxes, painting, furnishing and related expenses to complete the project. Thank you for your support!
Burma is one of the leading countries where children are enslaved as soldiers. Military officers and civilian traffickers receive significant incentives for delivering underage recruits. Children are frequently taken from bus and train stations, markets, or other public places, and threatened with prison if they refuse to obey. They are cut off from communication with their families and sent to military training camps ...
For over 100 years, the Taunggyi Orphanage has been a safe haven for children fleeing the brutality of the Burmese army. Thousands of children have sought refuge from the world in this Christian home. For the last 60 years, a special lady by the name of Miss Emerald has carried the weight of operating this orphanage. With Miss Emerald’s health deteriorating, the home is in desperate need.
Taunggyi Orphanage is located in a Buddhist community where less than five percent of the population is Christian. One courageous woman with a big heart for the orphaned children humbly started the home in the early 1900’s. She stepped out in faith and started the home with no promise of support. However, she had a fierce trust and faith in a Living God, knowing that He was able.
Today over 100 years later, Taunggyi Orphanage is a home and safe refuge to 147 children and 15 adults. The original founder passed the home to her granddaughter, Miss Emerald, who is now 86 years old. She was born at the orphanage, along with her brother and sister. From 1942-1945 the Japanese occupied Burma with cruelty. Miss Emerald’s parents and grandparents were all killed during the Japanese occupation. Raised by her aunt and uncle, Miss Emerald was grateful to the Lord for His provision.
As a young girl, Miss Emerald vowed to continue the work her grandmother had begun and has remained faithful to this vow. Miss Emerald understood the risk of these children living on the streets, not knowing who would take care of them or when their next meal would be. It was then that God called her to be an instrument of God’s love in the lives of these countless children.
Many of the children are from tribal regions of the country. Many of their villages were destroyed and their parents were killed in front of them. In the orphanage, the older girls help with the babies and young children as they desire to follow in Miss Emerald’s footsteps. Some of the older children have opened a small shop on the main street where they sell homemade goods to help Miss Emerald as well.
The children at Taunggyi are such a sweet example of how we can be like Christ. Their joy and smiles are contagious. Each of them is willing to give and share their possessions with others. If there is one place that Vision Beyond Borders wants to continue to support and bless, it’s the Taunggyi orphanage.
Today, Miss Emerald is faced with a difficult challenge. For the first time in 100 years, the orphanage is at risk of being shutdown. This would result in 147 children becoming homeless and countless more being unable to experience the love of Christ that is shown in Taunggyi home.
Vision Beyond Borders just learned that Miss Emerald was cheated out of the land the orphanage sits on. Anxious Chinese investors will come the moment Miss Emerald passes away and demolish the orphanage and develop the land. We invite you to partner with Miss Emerald and the Taunggyi home to give hope to generations of children to come. Our plan involves moving the home north to a rural village, where land has already been purchased, quite reasonably and a new orphanage is about to be built. This orphanage will be larger, capable of housing more children, teaching them new skills, and providing them with a Christ-centered education.
