The Agape Children's Home is a full-service, residential orphanage in Ghana, West Africa. It was founded by the directors of Agape Gospel Mission, Rick and Donna Whitcomb in 2000.
In Ghana today, tens of thousands of children are without parents. They have become orphans because their parents died from road accidents, HIV/AIDS, malaria, and a host of other diseases. These children are often left in the care of their poor relatives. Many of these relatives are too old and too poor to properly care for these orphans. They often do not have any regular income and they are barely surviving. Because of these problems, the orphans do not receive proper care. Unfortunately many fall victim to abuse, child prostitution and trafficking.
We receive biological orphans into our homes and give them care, education, training, and the love of Jesus. They were sick and malnourished. Many had not heard the Gospel and had never attended Church. But now all their needs are being met. At Agape Children’s Home, all of the orphans are given their own bed, food, medical care, and quality education at a private school
