Henry and Neri Tran, former refugees who fled to the United States in 1981, founded the orphanage in October 2009. Their dream to build a home for those children left behind the Pol Pot regime, and today has resulted in an orphanage that currently provides food, nutrition, medical and dental care, transportation, clothes, school fees to children in need. Beyond taking care of the children, Home of Grace alto engages in wider community development projects.
Most of the children come from rural villages near Phnom penh. Each child has a lot at least one parent and had lived in extreme poverty in his or her local village.
In its first year, Home of Grace Orphanage has adopted 60 children. The orphanage will eventually house 200 children.
Sponsorship fees are sent to Home of Grace Ministries in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma to ensure financial accountability. One hundred percent of the funds are then sent to Home of Grace Orphanage in Bati, Cambodia.
Home of Grace Orphanage has local staff that handles the operations, child care, and maintenance of the orphanage. The orphanage staff has a combined 30 years of experience working at various orphanages throughout Cambodia. The children to staff ratio are 12:1.
Home of Grace Orphanage believes in ensuring that each child is fully taken care of. The monthly sponsorship goes toward food, nutrition, medical and dental care, transportation, clothes, school fees and supplies, and other care-taking fees.
Sponsors will receive quarterly updates from the orphanage. Sponsors may contact the orphanage for more frequent updates and are welcomed and encouraged to visit the orphanage.
