Sister Stan's Children
"Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers, that you do unto me." Matt. 25:40.

Moved In, But Still Building!

Sister Stan traveled to the United States in March of 2010 and met with the West African Development Support Organization (WADSO), a Colorado based Catholic charity that promotes sustainable development projects serving the poor in West Africa. WADSO in turn introduced Sister Stan to Engineering Ministries International (EMI), another Colorado based Christian organization made up of volunteer engineers, architects, and other design professionals. A team of ten volunteers was quickly organized and, from September 25 - October 7, 2010, was hosted by Sister Stan in her rented home in the village of Sang, Ghana. They spent that time sharing in her vision and mission, assessing the site, researching local building standards, and finally providing Sister Stan with a complete design of Phase One of Nazareth Home for God's Children.

The orphanage and Sister Stan's vision will be accomplished in phases as the budget allows. Phase One will provide for the orphanage itself with room for 50 children, designed with expansion in mind and taking into consideration special needs requirements for handicapped children. Included in the orphanage will be a parlor, kitchen and dining room, play areas, office, guest rooms and laundry, and a temporary chapel. To help generate an income for the orphanage, this phase will also incorporate agricultural space for farming maize and beans and for raising animals, and a vocational school with public shops to make and sell baked goods, clothing, and jewelry. All the different phases will include:

Phase One: Orphanage, Votech School and Shops ***Completed August 16, 2014!***
Phase Two: Primary and Secondary Schools and Medical Clinic
Phase Three: Chapel and Staff/Guest Housing
Phase Four: Convent and Additional Housing
