Imagine a world where every child has a loving, stable home.

Orphaned and vulnerable children need more than shelter. They need a family that welcomes them as their own. “Our Children” need a family, not an institution, where they will feel loved and safe.

Welcome to Our Children International

We are an organization dedicated to providing loving and supportive family-style care for orphaned and vulnerable children around the world. Our mission is to embrace these children as our own, providing them with the food, education, and shelter they need to thrive.

How we measure success

How we measure success

At OCIC, we are dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children. We believe that every child deserves to grow and thrive in a loving and supportive environment, and that's exactly what we provide at our family-style shelters.

Strong Foundation

At OCIC, we focus on providing a secure and loving home for our children, as well as ensuring their physical and emotional well-being through access to health care, nutrition, and other necessities.

Invest in the Future

Education is a key focus for OCIC, and we work to provide every child with the resources they need to succeed in school and beyond. We also teach our children about agriculture, helping them to develop skills that can support them in the future.

Cultivating Faith and Love

OCIC families attend church regularly and pray together, and our parents teach our children to love others as Jesus loves them. Our vision is to see Burundi transformed and every orphan home in Jesus' name.

Healthy Families

OCIC prioritizes the health and well-being of each child in our care. This includes providing food, vitamins, medication, and medical and dental care as needed. OCIC also plans medical and dental care trips to ensure that our children have access to the care they need.

Joyful Childhood

At OCIC, we believe that childhood should be fun, and we work to create opportunities for our children to laugh, play, and enjoy their childhood.

Maintaining the cultural identity

At OCIC, we believe that every child has the right to grow and thrive in their own culture and community. That's why we are committed to maintaining the cultural identity of the children in our care, while also providing them with the education and support they need to reach their full potential.

We understand that each child's cultural background is a vital part of their identity, and we strive to honor and preserve this as they grow and develop. At the same time, we believe that it is important to provide these children with the resources and support they need to succeed, both in their own culture and beyond.

We believe that this approach is the best way to ensure that our children are able to grow into confident, capable adults who are equipped to make a positive impact in their communities and their country. We are dedicated to helping our children achieve their full potential, and we believe that by honoring their culture and providing them with the tools they need to succeed, we can help them create a brighter future for themselves and for those around them.
