Angel Home Orphanage

A Safe Haven for Orphaned Children

The Franciscan Sisters of St. Bernadette operate the Angel Home Orphanage for the Rulenge-Ngara Diocese. Prior to our contribution, the Sisters had to disperse orphans before school age due to a lack of resources. 

These children had no hope of an education. 

Now, the Sisters are able to house and care for the children who - we hope - will be sponsored at a Catholic grade school.

Indoor plumbing has been added to provide water for the orphans and sisters. The interior has also been finished. The orphanage can accommodate up to 60 children, and there are now 55 living there. They range in age from infants to 13 years old, with one high school student. The sisters help to prepare younger children to attend school through pre-school and kindergarten programs, which is very important because good Catholic boarding schools are quite academically competitive. A number of the children are sponsored at St. Severine and St. Peter Claver grade schools. They return to the orphanage when school is not in session.
