Current Projects

  • Baroque House In Trebic

    Romania | Casa Kiwi

    Following Ceausescu’s dictatorship, which ended in 1989, the world saw the plight of thousands of orphaned and neglected Romanian children. Orphans Aid International became involved in 2004 through the establishment of ‘Casa Kiwi’. The problems may not be as widely publicised as in 1989, but the neglect of these children that live in Romanian hospitals and institutions is still just as real today. In many ways the need to help is more urgent as many wish to believe the problem has gone away. Therefore, few resources are being provided to address the poverty and abandonment of children. The situation has now extended to the next generation.


  • Baroque House In Trebic

    Russia | The Auyshki Centre

    We have been working in Kostroma, Russia since 2005, and on Boxing Day 2009, we had the joy of seeing the centre officially opened. The Auyshki Centre is providing daily care for more than 20 children. The centre assists children who don't meet the criteria to live in a state orphanage or who are already part of the orphanage system.


  • Baroque House In Trebic

    India | ASHA Neketon

    If you have seen the movie Slumdog Millionaire you've seen the face of the children we serve in Kolkata, India. Since 2007 we have been funding a food and basic medical programme for children that live in the gutters, pavements and rubbish piles of Kolkata. These children are surviving because of practical help given to them via supporters providing the bare necessities such as rice and plastic sheets to sleep under.


  • Baroque House In Trebic

    Uganda | The Imuka Project

    After some years working in the area, 2014 has seen the launch of the Imuka Family Strengthening project. Our team in Uganda are working hard to ensure children are kept in families if at all possible, and are supporting families with all the help they need to keep their children. It’s a different model – but already has local community support and is saving children’s lives.

Five Days. One Goal. Lives Saved. Join Me!

Henoch Kloosterboer - Monday, August 11, 2014

It's Henoch here (that's me there). I'm excited to be gearing up for Live Below the Line 2014!

Last year I was one of 149 participants, Living Below the Line for Orphans Aid International. We all have our stories! I'd love to hear yours!

I begged, pleaded, donated my 31st birthday (which raised $2,000+), and shaved my hair off to raise another $639 in the last 4 hours of the challenge.

And together.. hungry, tired but passionate, we raised $43,356 for real kids in real need! Well, I'm ready to do it all again! OAI are caring for more children than ever before. At last count, over 700 daily in 5 countries. That's half a million meals a year – from Kiwis fundraising for a Kiwi charity keeping it very real. Read More…
