Joe Brandi thanks sponsors at Unity 4 Orphans 2022 Wave-A-Thon in San Diego

Wave-A-Thon Highlights: Dedicated Supporters!

Unity 4 Orphans is so thankful for the support that led to a successful fundraiser at our 2nd Annual Wave-A-Thon! The students in our ESL program in Nicaragua are now learning valuable life skills through education and new curriculum in the English language, which will open doors for them in their future.

Juliana knitted stuffed animals for the orphans

Thank you for the stuffed animals. God bless you!

We recently introduced Juliana, a 5th grader from San Diego who graciously chose to support Unity 4 Orphans for a school project by making stuffed animal “companions” for the children at the orphanages we serve. A few weeks ago, Juliana joined us on a service trip to Mexico to deliver her handmade creations, and brought joy to kids who need it most.

Help U4O Make Giving Tuesday the Best One Yet!

Children living in poverty worldwide experience the holidays as they would any other day: full of insecurity over food, shelter, and other basic human needs. This holiday season, Unity 4 Orphans’ Giving Tuesday mission is to make sure underprivileged orphans and children continue to feel seen and supported for a better tomorrow and a brighter future!

Service Trips Offer Unique Team-Building Experiences

Whether for team building within a corporation, a church group, or a collection of friends, Unity 4 Orphans’ day trips to orphanages in Tijuana provide a memorable way for teams to bond with one another and the children we serve.

Window Screens Matter!

Providing for simple inadequacies that affect children’s lifestyle enables them to do their best in school and more importantly, lets them know that they are valuable and loved.

National Nonprofit Day

One of the missions of Unity 4 Orphans is to bring awareness to the ways in which people are contributing to the needs of those less fortunate, especially children living in poverty, and we proudly share in National Nonprofit Day!

One Child Living in Poverty

Many of us may not be able to relate to this level of poverty, but we can all relate to how stressors in our environment play a role in our relationships and our ability to make progress. This is the story of one child living in poverty.

Counseling Gives Hope for Brighter Futures

Unity 4 Orphans’ heart for the children we serve calls us to help meet needs for not only their physical health and education, but also their emotional and mental health. With the support of our gracious donors, we have hired psychologists to work with the children in Miramar and Tijuana.

Celebrating Our Rockstar Volunteers!

Over a sunny weekend in June we gathered to celebrate our amazing Unity4Orphans team members and volunteers! The outdoor patio at Solterra Winery & Kitchen in Leucadia was a perfect venue, and we enjoyed delicious food and delightful company!

College Conversations in Nicaragua

Unity 4 Orphans staff hosted a meeting for ESL program students in Nicaragua to share their experiences in—and expectations of—university life. Current university students were enthusiastic to guide their younger counterparts and shared admirable goals, like helping their families and communities once they graduate. Their conversations demonstrate our commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty by supporting education and opening career opportunities.
