Open Child Sponsorship Teams 2017

Open teams give anyone the opportunity to join an already-planned mission trip. These trips bring together missions-minded individuals from all over the United States and Canada. Our open teams also present a unique opportunity for child sponsors. Whether you already sponsor a child or are considering the opportunity – open trips are a great way to meet sponsored children in person! Upcoming open teams will be highly relational and focus on spending time with the children in our program.

 
 

From Hood to Coast to Haiti

Everything changed for the Belizaire family after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Mr. Belizaire was killed, and the family’s home was destroyed. Mrs. Belizaire has three children, and struggled to make ends meet by selling clothing on the street. The Belizaire children (Ralph, Carl, and Carla) were sponsored by generous friends through Forward Edge, which provided them with education, safe water and food—but without a safe home, it was difficult to stay healthy and keep up in school.
