The Obadiah Project was born out of a vision to give a voice and dignity to the unfortunate (Proverbs 31:8-9). The project seeks to give a home and a holistic care program to street boys ages 4-16 who suffer from various forms of abuse in the streets and are subject to violence, slavery, drugs, and prostitution. The Obadiah Project provides each child with medical assistance, physical care, education, spiritual guidance, vocational training, and a home in a facility outside the city.
Through the generosity of friends, supporters, and the Presbyterian Church, 11.8 acres of land was purchased in the city of Mbour where an infrastructure was established capable of receiving and caring for up to 25 boys. We are also able to house 2 missionary families, provide residency for our staff, and host short-term missionary teams.
Our goal is to build 10 houses that will remove 500 children from the streets of Senegal. They will be in a place where they will receive food, love, care, education, and leisure.
