Sunrise Children's Home

Who we are
Sunrise Children's Home International is an Oregon non-profit corporation whose mission is to help disadvantaged children throughout the world achieve their full potential.
 
What we do
Our main focus for the past 16 years has been on Sunrise Children's Home in San Nicolas, Argentina. Our most important accomplishment has been to improve the spiritual, physical and mental wellbeing of hundreds of abandoned, abused and neglected children at Sunrise. We operate a sponsorship program, organize and lead groups of construction and maintenance volunteers, arrange for short-term volunteers, and operate a scholarship program.


Based on the success of our program in Argentina, we are seeking to expand our program to other children’s homes.


We do not own or operate children’s homes. Rather, we support existing homes that meet our stringent screening criteria.

 
What is unique about us
Unlike most charitable organizations, we receive no salaries. 100% of all donations are used for the purposes specified by the donors. Travel and other expenses incurred in connection with fund raising and administration are covered by donations received for that purpose.
 
Why we do what we do
Many children's homes throughout the world provide only the very basic needs of the children. Often, the children leave the homes and face the same conditions that brought them there in the first place. The mental and physical abilities of many children in the homes are not unlike those of the general population. They just don't have the same opportunities to develop these abilities. Many of the homes are not able to provide staff that can be adequate substitute parents.


Sunrise Children's Home International believes the children in these homes should be treated just like children in normal loving, caring homes. Our mission is to seek out children's homes where the director and staff have the same vision and are limited only by lack of support and encouragement. We become partners in this endeavor. Our experience in Argentina proves that this works. For the first time in the home's 40- year history, children are optimistic about their future and not only are completing primary and secondary school but are going on to trade schools or college.


The cycle of poverty, abuse and abandonment is being broken!

 
Would you like to help?
There are several ways you can help. You can sponsor a child through monthly donations, make one-time or periodic donations for special projects, accompany us on a maintenance or construction trip, contribute to our scholarship program or serve as a short-term volunteer. You can also arrange for us to make a presentation to your organization, church or company.


If you are a doctor, dentist, nurse, optometrist or other health worker, we also have volunteer opportunities for you.


Many of the children love to have pen pals.


Providing a safe, caring haven for children and helping them reach their full potential and become productive members of society is one of the most rewarding experiences anyone can have.


Please join us in our mission. Thanks for caring!
