Founding of Women for Orphans Worldwide:
In July of 2009, thirteen mothers and daughters traveled to Guatemala with Orphan Outreach to serve together. After seeing the immense needs of the orphans in Guatemala, the team decided to start Women for Orphans worldwide as a way to continue working with Orphan Outreach from home.
According to UNICEF, there are more than 163 million orphans in the world. Orphan Outreach was founded to make a lasting difference to Orphans and vulnerable kids by developing and supporting programs that prepare them for fulfilling, independent life in their community. Orphan Outreach is based in Plano, Texas. They serve several different countries: Guatemala, Honduras, Russia, India, Kenya, Latvia, Ukraine and here in the United States.
Founding of WOW – East Texas in 2016:
A group from KVNE Christian Radio traveled together on an annual radio station mission trip with Orphan Outreach to Guatemala in June 2016. Several on the team decided to begin our own Women for Orphans Worldwide Chapter in East Texas.
