DI is doing an amazing job. I've seen their work in Thailand and was impressed with the quality of their care for orphans. Their care includes meeting the physical, mental and emotional needs of the kids in their homes. DI is great about updating donors regarding their work and I've found them to be very accessible to any questions I've had. They are really on the cutting edge of serving in SE Asia in that they work in areas where most can't or won't. It has been a privilege to be involved as a donor!

I can personally attest to the character and integrity of the founder of Divine Inheritance Marcus Young. I have known Marcus for over 20 years and even when I first knew him I was amazed at how he was preparing himself for this life work with passion, commitment and discipline. It is not an accident that DI is having such a profound impact, My husband and I consider it a privilege to be part of this great work that is truly making a difference. We can without hesitation encourage others to do likewise. This non profit work is not only Marcus' "Devine Inheritance" but it is also ours as we come alongside and assist financially or otherwise.

Divine Inheritance is an organistion that truly makes a difference to the lives of children in war torn countries, who have been the victims of unspeakable acts of violence. I have personally witnessed the immense impact this organisation has on the lives of those who have been rescued. Apart from food and shelter, they are given a hope and a future and are being educated and raised to be future leaders in their countries. As they have been treated with love and integrity so shall they lead.

Divine Inheritance is doing the type of work that is often overlooked in the nonprofit world. They fulfill their responsibilities with an engaging integrity and continue to push the enevelope when it comes to creative fundraising and awareness, especially in the 20-something demographic. They are an excellent, established organization that is changing lives one child at a time.

Hi, I have been supporting the work of Divine Inheritance and am totally privileged to do so. This organization is rescuing 'children' from a life of dreadful abuse, abandonment and slavery and providing them with health and wholeness, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
