Caring for Orphans, Hand in Hand

“Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.”—Psalm 82:3. Those of us living in the US may look for ways to apply this verse to our lives. But for many people around the world, orphan care is a daily reality, one that appears on their doorstep and sits around their dinner table. One place that is especially true is in the Central African Republic.

Changing a Culture One Heart at a Time: CIDEL

When a nation does not value integrity and moral virtue, the effects are felt in all levels of society. Dr. Augustin Hibaile noticed in his country, the Central African Republic, “a deficit of ethical leaders from all levels of society: family, church, and government,” and he determined to do something about it.

The Center is a theological seminary with student dormitories. It provides training for pastors and evangelists. The seminary building has been completed, but additional dormitories need to be built.

Africa: Publications for African Youth

The goal of Publications for African Youth is to create and distribute culturally relevant publications for French-speaking Africa written from a Christian and biblical perspective. Publications for African young people are our first priority, the magazine Jouv’Afrique being the primary example. We also seeks to publish other predominantly Africa-related materials useful to a broader public both in Africa and in Europe.


Jouv’Afrique : The youth of CAR, Chad, and Cameroon desperately need a Christian life perspective.  This magazine gives them the tools they need to face the problem that African youth deal with, like a Biblical view of sexuality and HIV/AIDS concerns.  Magazines are priced affordably so they can purchase it easily.

CAR: Hand In Hand Orphan Schools

In central Africa, if a close family member dies the culture requires that the brother receive the children who are left behind. In a place where it is difficult for many families to nourish and pay school fees for their own children, it is nearly impossible to also provide for adopted orphans. Many orphans simply are not able to go to school.

To meet this need, Encompass creates partnerships between churches or individuals in North America/Europe and local churches in the CAR, to provide three years of foundational schooling for orphan children within the church and surrounding village. North American/European partners provide funding for school supplies, teacher salaries, and one meal per school day.

  • $4,000 funds a one-year orphan school partnership at one school
  • $4,800 will help provide two motorcycles for the Regional Coordinator

CIDEL (Center International for Development of Ethical Leadership) was founded in 2005 to help central African leaders in the church, education, and government build their minds, hearts, and character. To date, over 700 students have been trained. The dream of founder, Dr. Augustin Hibaile, is to see leaders in his country adopt ethics based on biblical principles, to lead their families, their workplaces, their churches, and their country in partnership with God, and to be an example to neighboring countries.

This project will help Dr. Hibaile with the cost of four training workshops.

  • $725 covers one workshop
  • $2,900 covers four workshops
