Causes: Children & Youth, Christianity, Foster Care, International, International Human Rights, International Relief, Religion

Mission: Committed to prevent and combat human trafficking and all forms of modern–day oppression by educating and mobilizing The Body of Christ in countries: 1) Where women & children are at highest risk of human trafficking, forced prostitution and other forms of modern-day oppression. 2) Where little to no other help is available because it is considered either “too” dangerous, “too” expensive or “too” remote for most people to go.

Each orphanage has an education system in place, training and developing leaders for the next generation. The medical network allows Make Way Partners to give life-saving treatment to 45,000 people each year.

Target demographics: vulnerable women and children at-risk to human trafficking.

Direct beneficiaries per year: care for 1,500 unadoptable orphans and their surrounding communities

Geographic areas served: Sudan and South Sudan

Programs: • indigenously led anti-trafficking network • nutritious food and clean water • shelter and 24-hour security • quality education and training • Christ-centered discipleship • proper healthcare and medicine • emotional trauma care and healing support

MWP is a powerful organization as evidenced by its history and results. It speaks loudly of what God can do where there is real faith and commitment. It is truly an unbelievable story except for the fact it really happened. With a small team of volunteers, the Smith's threw their whole lives into following God's will. And God's will is for all people in the world to know His love. One way that MWP is doing that is by loving children in North and South Sudan who have lived their whole life in fear and terror through no fault of their own. Over 1000 children are now housed in three orphanages, loved, fed, educated. The Smiths saw the wisdom of finding believers who live in Sudan to partner with them to do the work of MWP. I feel so blessed to be able to be a part of this ministry and know that I am participating in God's work in Sudan, a dark place where God's light is brightly burning!

Having been a supporter of Make Way Partners since 2005 has allowed me the privilege to watch as the work done through Make Way Partners to combat human trafficking continues to grow. I remember hearing the remarkable stories coming out of Sudan in the early days of what would eventually give birth to MWP's first orphanage in that country. I have seen Make Way Partners used to accomplish amazing things. While the world around them gives in to despair and corruption and hate, those working for Make Way Partners and it's ministries hold out a message of Hope and Love and Forgiveness. It is a beacon of Hope in a desperate place. Lives saved. Lives changed.

We are so touched by Kimberly and the Make Way Partners Organization. Our family supports them as much as we can. They are bravely doing what few would be willing to do. Kimberly's book, Passport Through Darkness was so eye-opening and was a huge blessing.

I first heard of MWP through Focus on the Family Radio Show. I was touched by their works in Sudan. They risked their very own lives to rescue the fatherless. Because of that, my husband and I have been supporting this ministry. We love to receive letters from our children in Sudan! Many times their letters brought tears of joy as I could tell of their strengths, their dreams and their hopes in life. I am thankful these children have a safe shelter and are loved!

I first learned of MWP when I read the book "Passport Through Darkness". It opened my eyes to whole different world in which the level of suffering was far beyond what I could even fathom. How could I turn a blind eye without at least doing something. When I realized that the people who ran the organization put their own "boots on the ground" and participated in the risk and suffering that the people they were ministering to were enveloped in on a daily basis, I knew it was a passionate burden for them; being faithful with money is not an issue when you are willing to give of so many other areas of your life for a burden such as this. I feel totally comfortable donating to them, and realize that every dime we give for the care of the our adopted orphans, go to minister to that child. I consider it a privilege to be able to give to this organization.

My experience with MWP began when a church member did a presentation on what he saw when visiting MWP's New Life orphanage/school in South Sudan. I was so moved that I went home and picked out a child for my husband and I to sponsor. When MWP started this school, there were hundreds of orphans in the area sleeping in trees to avoid being attacked by hyenas and wild dogs. Through the efforts of MWP, there is an orphanage there now that is home to 750 children. They provide complete and total care for these children. Our church now sponsors two more children through MWP. They have opened my eyes to how blessed we are in the USA, and how, as Christians, we are called to care for orphans and widows -- those less fortunate that ourselves. MWP leadership follows this calling so well. I am so proud and happy to be able to partner with this ministry.

My heart goes out to orphans, all over the world. When I read Kimberly Smith's book, Passport Through Darkness, I knew this was the organization I wanted to sponsor a child through. My husband and I have sponsored one child, for two years now, and love the fact, that all money goes directly into the welfare of this child.

I became familiar with Make Way Partners after reading Kimberly Smith's book, Passport Through Darkness. Our family currently sponsors three children in Sudan through the organization, and I can't say enough good things about the experience. 100% of sponsorship funds go directly to the care of the children, and we are constantly updated as to the conditions and circumstances in the areas the children are living. Make Way Partners is committed to going where no one else dares to, and it is an honor to support them!
