There are currently 12-14 million orphans in Africa waiting for someone to nurture, raise and develop them. The local church partnered with the first world church can accomplish this goal. These kids are going to be the next generation of leadership in Africa. The culture of destruction and despair in Africa can be changed in one generation.
