Our Story

Taking Care of Vulnerable Children & Youth

Maranatha International Foundation was founded on the belief that any child in the right mental space approaching life with the right knowledge can unlock the future in better ways than we can imagine. By taking care of at risk children and youth, our aim is to avail equal opportunities for them by reinforcing their belief and mentality to achieve more in life irrespective of their background.

A child should be a free spirit, imagining and dreaming of a limitless future. In a state, they are able to learn, develop interests and skills – to guide a path to a prosperous future together with their peers. To train a child to grow with the right mentality about life and the community around is the greatest gift you can ever bestow. And isn’t this what we are called on to do?

For our CHildren

We are here to serve

A mountain can be moved! Carrying a stone/rock or a truck full of dirt from in on a daily basis is the task at hand. Eventually, you look back at where the mountain was and it will be no more. The obstacle of poverty, hunger, poor mental health and lack of education, is the mountain we are moving, in order to provide a clear path for all our children to have a better future. We have an incredible and committed team leading this charge.
