Reclaimed Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization birthed out of a desire to exalt Christ by fulfilling the biblical mandate to serve orphans and the poor. We seek to accomplish this by focusing on three priority areas: education, service and financial assistance.
Founded in Starkville, Miss., in 2012, Reclaimed Project connects those who wish to serve to underserved people in that state and around the world.
Reclaimed Project will assist families who wish to adopt…
- Help educate people about the plight of the nearly 150 millions orphans around the world
- Connect prospective adoptive families to a mentor family who has adopted through the same agency and/or in the same country
- Provide grants to assist families with the financial burden associated with adoption costs
- Award scholarships to college students who were orphaned or adopted
Reclaimed Project will partner alongside orphanages and their local communities to help create and sustain change through…
- Supporting (meeting financial needs)
- Going (sending teams)
- Connecting (matching local churches with orphanages)
- Partnering (helping people help themselves)
Reclaimed Project currently supports:
Restoration Hope serves the oppressed and fatherless by partnering with established ministries in Sweetwaters, South Africa, that are demonstrating the unconditional love of Christ and working to restore hope to places being destroyed by poverty and injustice.
The Orphan Care Center in Lobatse, Botswana, was founded by two recent Mississippi College graduates who desire to serve the orphaned and vulnerable children in this country ravaged by AIDS. Botswana is home to more children orphaned by AIDS than any other country in the world. Some 93,000 children have lost at least one parents, and many are infected from birth. Women in the local church make headbands from scraps of traditional African wedding fabrics to provide food, medicine, clothing and educational materials for the Orphan Care Center’s children. Reclaimed Project will support a number of initiatives in this holistic orphan care ministry.
A number of other partnerships are in the works, both locally and in Africa, to support vulnerable children.
The first round of adoption grants for families adopting domestically and internationally will soon be awarded. Please contact us for application information.
The 1:27 Initiative
Reclaimed Project has launched the 1:27 Initiative. It focuses on giving the public a way to support our work through donations in retail settings as well as encouraging one-time and recurring donations. 1:27 focuses on living out the call of James 1:27, to help those in need.
The heart of the 1:27 Initiative is to allow 1 person to leverage into the movement by giving 27. It may be .27 at a cash register as you checkout. It may be 1 person giving $27 per month. It’s about being others minded as you are shopping and fighting for those who have no voice. The question is … Will you fight with us? Will you be part of the change? Consider giving the next time you see the 1:27 Initiative sign.
