How You Can Help
There are many ways to support the work of Orphaids but here are the key options:
A voluntary networker in any given locality will do 3 things:
If you would like to help in this way, just get a recommendation from your local church and write to us about becoming a networker.
Giving & Fundraising
of all we want to thank God and His people for the wonderful financial
support already received. In over 3 years of intensive building
work, we did not have to lay off any workers for even one day.
the immediate future, Orphaids Ecuador will continue to depend on UK
support for the daily running of the orphanage. Although our
missionary personnel will not be paid by Orphaids, the Ecuadorian staff
will be paid wages and, of course, the orphans will be fully supported.
You can help by making a regular donation to Orphaids using our Standing Order Form and, if possible, sign a Gift Aid Form so that we can recover the tax - please find details of Tax Free Giving in our fact sheet.
You can also make a donation via our JustGiving account. This cuts down on our admin costs as they reclaim any Gift Aid on our behalf. You could make a one-off donation or setup a regular monthly donation for as little or as much as you like. We'd be just as grateful for a regular £2 per month as we would for £20.
you could create sponsored events or take part in events such as the
Flora London Marathon or local activities and provide valuable help
towards the wages and maintenance bills.

You can create a fundraising page atJustGiving too.
you are intending to organise your own sponsored event, it is important
that we know about it in advance. For liability reasons, your
event can be run in aid of Orphaids but not in the name of Orphaids.
Please feel free to download a Sponsor Form if you intend to take part in an event.
Our partnership with you will be somewhat different to usual one supporter/one child scheme, which you have probably seen in place with various organisations.
Our ethos with the scheme is ‘why ask you to pay per month to support one child, when you can give this same amount of money and actually help many more’.
cost of keeping a child at the project in
In order to join the scheme, we ask you to complete an Application Form, a Standing Order (minimum monthly donation is £18.00, but you can give more if you wish) and if you are a UK Tax Payer, we ask that you also complete a Gift Aid Form – enabling us to make the most of your financial commitment.
In return for your commitment to supporting the scheme you will receive:
quarter you will receive a profile and up-date on one of the children at
the project – each time you will receive a different story, this way
you will build up a file of all the children
– it will take some time to receive a profile for each of
the children and therefore you will be able to see the full scope
& impact of your giving, keep
in touch with where your money is going and to see the personal side of
Insurance Scheme - 'thinking outside the donation box'
Would you like to be able to give more money to Orphaids without it costing you extra?
Think of the various insurance policies you take out during the course of a year - car insurance, home buildings and contents, travel insurance and even business insurance.
Contact Chris Knott Insurance for a comparative quote when your renewal falls due and they will pay a percentage of their commission to Orphaids for every policy sold.
If the price and level of cover is the same as or better than that already enjoyed by you with your current provider, you can switch to Chris Knott Insurance for good reason.
They use the same well-known providers you are probably insured with already (Norwich Union, Zurich, HSBC Insurance, Fortis, AXA, etc) and have access to the same or better rates.
Call them for a quote free on 0800 917 2274 or, for more details about their products, visit the website at www.chrisknott.co.uk. Remember to quote reference '648' or 'Orphaids'.
The donation to Orphaids will not cost you extra and is not added to your premium. It really is a profit share.
Though the need for financial support is great, we know that we are working in vain if we do not rely on God. In John 15:5 Jesus says 'apart from me you can do nothing'. We want God to be at the centre of our work and we continuously ask him for guidance.
The best way for you to support Orphaids is through regular prayer - prayer that is powerful and effective.
However, in our busy lives it can sometimes be hard to know what to pray for, where to begin - so we have created a seven day prayer diary for you to use as a template if you wish.
