Make Way Partners identifies the unique needs affecting the most vulnerable in our anti-trafficking network. Along with our indigenous partners, we determine specific steps and strategies to prevent the cycle of human trafficking and modern-day oppression for unadoptable orphans and at-risk women.

Step-by-step, we are seeking to do what has never been done before: provide consistent, sustainable, transformational care and infrastructure for orphans, widows, and elderly held captive inside warzones and to equip entire regions to develop and improve.  Through sustainable investments in the surrounding communities we participate in the building of long term, indigenously-led discipleship and relief ministries providing opportunities for long-lasting hope, practical care, and life-transformational healing.


Clean & safe drinking water saves lives and time, empowering vulnerable women and children with more opportunities for their future.


Nutritious foods provided at each location improves the overall health of the vulnerable & helps facilitate healing from malnutrition and trauma.


Medicine and clinics at each of our locations offer orphans and their surrounding communities life-saving care and valuable medical training.


Access to quality K-12 schools and adult literacy classes offers bright futures to a new generation of peacemakers within warzones.


Trauma-informed care addresses the physical, psychological, & spiritual needs of the orphans, widows, staff, and elderly suffering from PTSD.


Invaluable job training and placement gives hope to former slaves, students, and widows in communities with little to no other options.


Safe houses and dormitories in our anti-trafficking network, provides both orphan and widow security, family and a place to belong.


Teaching techniques to grow & produce food brings more stability & self-sufficiency to the communities within these volatile warzones.

Make Dreams Come True

In 2005 we began dreaming about what life for homeless orphans terrorized by slave raiders, hyenas, starvation, and disease could one day be.  At the time, our hopes seemed too farfetched, ridiculous really. Who would even dream of running around a war-torn desert, building schools, clinics, churches, and homes? It had never been done before.  Nearly a decade later, Make Way Partners now has three strategic locations in its Sudan orphan-care network, providing complete care for 1,500 unadoptable orphans. As our orphans are grow they are daring to dream even bigger dreams!  We need your help to make orphans’ dreams come true.  Learn how:

In 2016, we had our first graduating class of seniors from the first high school in the entire region of New Life Ministry. Starting with first grade, 12 years ago, and adding one class at a time, we now have a high school enrollment that is double and even triple the number of students we are currently equipped to educate. Phase II will help us build the essential infrastructure and capacity to continue educating and raising up future leaders! We have invested these 12 years into raising an internal, transformational peace—sustainable peace from within—through education and holistic care to change the nations of Sudan and South Sudan, one orphan at a time. Make Way Partners long history of repeated completion of all projects on time and within budget assures both us and our donors that we can—by the grace of God—accomplish Phase II of our high school for $275,000 and keep the healing and growing going!

MWP provides complete care for 1,500 of the world’s most vulnerable orphans in Sudan and South Sudan. Each of our orphanages is directed by an indigenous leader and is strategically located within Sudan and South Sudan as to maximize accessibility for those who are at highest risk and need.

Each of the three MWP indigenously-led orphan-care facilities features an on-site medical clinic through which we provide medical care to our orphans as well as to the surrounding communities. Currently our medical network serves an average of 45,000 patients per year.

We have recently received a generous grant to purchase a Sterile Surgical Unit for our FHL medical mission. With the ability to surgically perform emergency C-sections, repair fistulas from rape trauma, and provide relief from appendicitis and hernias, we will indeed save many lives in the surrounding communities. Our need now is to improve our infrastructure of clean water, latrines, security fencing, pharmaceutical supplies and a secure storage area, along with exam rooms and staff quarters. This Phase of FHL is $175,000.

Each of our orphanages and our medical network runs its entire ministry helping thousands of orphans and neighboring communities through the use of one Land Cruiser each. These life-saving vehicles are used for everything from emergency evacuations, to food and supply delivery, from rescuing children from the bush, to hauling the sick and even the dead. Land Cruisers are powerful and reliable vehicles. Our mechanics have been able to keep them running through hell and back, even saving them from being swept down swollen rushing, white-watered rivers. However, after more than a decade of ministry, we need to replace them. Ordinarily, each one is priced at nearly $100,000; however, we have a special arrangement with another mission group that sells the same vehicle for $45,000 including delivery. To reequip our ministries for many years to come with four of these life-saving vehicles, a total investment of $180,000 is needed.

Housing for both widows and orphans in the warzones of Sudan and South Sudan is always overwhelming and underfunded. Women and children are literally standing outside the fences of our compounds waiting to come in. Every night our indigenous leaders must close their gates on those vulnerable outside simply because of the limited space and lack of funding. For $50,000 in South Sudan and $75,000 in Sudan, we can build a small dormitory to welcome approximately 25 more orphans and supply two widows with training and a job as their caregivers.

Make Way Partners… going to the most vulnerable & least protected to end human trafficking.
