We would like to introduce a platform to you that is very close to our hearts here at Christian Adoption Consultants. MARKED is an amazing organization that dreams of emptying orphanages across Latin America and beyond by getting to the root of the problem. Breaking cycles of poverty, drug abuse, trafficking, imprisonment, criminal activity and abandonment by empowering lives with sustainable systems to go further than they could have dreamed. Empowering families to be made whole is what they are going after.
Their mission is to reach those who are often forgotten about, as well as those targeted by organized crime groups. They exist to partner, build, and create sustainable programs and jobs that both provide education as well as daily needs such as food, clothing, and appropriate medical attention. Their desire is to see the generational cycle of drug abuse, imprisonment, and homelessness broken forever for their kids. They aim to change mindsets and create a culture and legacy of adoption in this generation that is passed down to the generations to come.
Their methods are simple: they partner with existing children’s homes (orphanages) and establish preventative centers in villages and at risk communities. They identify the problems and/or lack, meet with their team, define major goals, develop a plan and get to work. Their plan is not to recreate the wheel, but to partner with systems and government that are already in place and need support and direction to succeed.
Although they do have their own and intend to build more bases and centers, they believe that to truly change the world they must carry vision not to just build more structures but rather empty the ones that already exist through a model of empowerment, sustainability and whole families.
They believe in reunification when possible, adoption when necessary, and family always. All the while, teaching, training, equipping and empowering families in high risk communities with the tools to succeed, no matter the cost.
