What we are planning
Our goal is simple and fundamental. We want to build Marian refuges worldwide, which give the special children of this world, the orphans, a new home. Children will not be referred to foster families, but can experience what care, security, continuity and stability constitutes. In this community they learn and work together to shape their lives. They are supported with a top educational format from the age of six until they obtain their High School degree. During these formative years, they will grow up in a family network of togetherness and hopefully personify a worldview that integrates love, character, integrity and faith.
The refuges are will be located in environments where clean water is available and land can be cultivated for practical purposes. The aim is to achieve a degree of economic independence and to promote a natural self-sufficient life lifestyle. Children are educated in cooperation with the respective education ministry of the state in which they are located or according to an international educational standard such as the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. They will be accompanied by volunteers and accomplished educators as well as academic specialists, who can teach and live onsite. In addition, the Marian Refuges offer educators and volunteers an environment of faith, meditation and peace from a harried worldly environment in a beautiful natural setting. It is foreseen that the refuges will also manufacture products to spur creativity and innovation while increasing economic and spiritual independence.
Why we want to help
Children wait daily for an adopter
unfilled jobs in children's homes
Increase in the number of children coming into care over the last 10 years
There are 50000 Children in Germany looking for a loving family environment.
We find it extremely sad that many of these young people are not in regular contact with loving, independent and positive role models. Their principal contacts are paid social workers.
From our point of view, these caregivers alone are not enough to provide the children with a deep sense of unconditional love and attention, for a future of accomplishment, happiness and fulfillment. The project is supported by professional supervisors, therapists and e-Learning experts.
There are 1500 vacant jobs in German children's homes The number of children entering orphanages or Children’s homes increased by 54% during the last decade. Often there are no meaningful family ties and when they do exist, they are often heavily burdened by existential deficiencies and excessive regulatory interference.
