Assist International's 30th Anniversary

POSTPONED: Light Around the World Gala Online Auction

Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, the online auction will be postponed.  We will let you know when the auction will be reopened. Thank you for your continued support! 


Benefiting the CHILD: ASSIST program.

Several of our generous supporters have donated auction items with expiration dates (example baseball tickets for this summer). You may bid on these items  up to 7pm PDT on March 28th. 

Your generosity now will provide the resources to meet the ongoing needs.


The Need

Over 90% of orphans in the world live in low and middle-income countries. These children are orphaned from things like HIV/AIDS and armed conflict. With no one to care for them, many of these children suffer from hunger, malnutrition, and lack of education.

Our Solution

Assist International believes that every child deserves the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life, and there is nothing more life-changing than providing a child with a family and education. We care for orphaned and vulnerable children by developing and sustaining family-style orphan villages.

We also build and support schools for children. Education is the foundation of a hopeful, productive future, yet in the world today, millions of children do not have the opportunity to attend primary school. We work with our partners to provide educational opportunities for children that have limited or no access to education.

Join Us

Assist International was birthed out of a response to the needs of orphaned and vulnerable children. Since 1990, this has always been the center of our mission. For almost 30 years, we’ve been on the front lines, building orphan homes and schools and meeting the needs of suffering children.

When you join CHILD: ASSIST, you will be directly supporting Assist International’s programs for orphaned and vulnerable children.
These programs, located in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Romania, and Thailand, provide orphaned and vulnerable children with a home, a family, and access to education.
