Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects

April 2020 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Home Projects Update

Our project is supporting 140 children in northern Mozambique in whole or in part. All these children are in school...and all know the Lord!

Of this number, 67 are currently in secondary school; 11 are in vocational programs as diverse as architecture and medical technology; seven are in university degree programs; and 55 are in primary school.

Sponsorship support is a key part of the complex funding of all these different students and programs. We are very grateful for the faithfulness of our IMC "Stop for the One-Canada" sponsors.

April 2019 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

When we began our ministry among the poor in northern Mozambique in 2005, we could never in our most optimistic dreams have foreseen the report we are presenting here today. To God be all the praise and glory!!

In Mozambique, secondary school covers Grades 8-12. This year, we have:

14 girls and 4 boys in Grade 8;

18 girls and 2 boys in Grade 9;

6 girls and 3 boys in Grade 10;

2 girls and 3 boys in Grade 11;

and 4 girls and 1 boy in Grade 12.

October 2018 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

We probably should be changing the title of this project from "orphan-village." In the first place, only about half our resident children in Mieze and Noviane are true orphans. The rest have at least one living parent--usually a mother--but she is either unable or unwilling to care for her children. And many of the village children we are supporting through our sponsorship program have one or both parents alive with whom they are living.

April 2018 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

Our project is currently supporting, in whole or in large part, well over 70 young people who are attending secondary school or pursuing vocational training. This is an amazing statistic, given that preceding generations of these children's families would never have attended secondary school or, in most cases, even completed primary school.

These young people are all committed Christians and are intentionally pursuing the Lord's plan for their individual lives. Many are also quite bold in sharing their own faith with family members and friends.

October 2017 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

We have 80 resident children in our Mieze and Noviane Centres. That's a statistic; but to us they are 80 precious lives...each with his or her individual story.

Sorte Saide is a 16-year-old boy who has lived in our Noviane Centre for over four years. Before that, he lived with a nearby aunt and her alcoholic husband. The husband didn't want to spend any money on Sorte, so he was abused and had no food or clothes. We were already helping Sorte financially; and when we were finally asked to take him into our centre, we did so readily.

October 2016 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

Our 80 resident children at the Mieze and Noviane Children’s Centres all come from the most hopeless and impoverished circumstances imaginable. Many are total orphans; the rest have only one living parent, usually a very poor mother unable (or unwilling) to care for her children. Many never had an opportunity to attend school before coming to our centres.

June 2016 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

Our 80 resident children at the Mieze and Noviane Children’s Centres enjoy welcoming visitors…and especially when they are visitors who’ve come before and built relationships with many of the same kids over several years.

Many of our older Noviane resident kids are now on Facebook and have access to other social media. This has enabled them to maintain communication with sponsors and adult friends from churches on the other side of the world. How different this all is from where we began with these same kids only 6-8 years ago!
