This Season, Give the Gift only God can Repay!


You've probably heard the saying, "He who gives to the poor lends to God", but the best gift you can ever give is that gift given to someone who may never be in a position to repay you. That is the truest unconditional giving. And one of the best examples of it is giving to children, especially motherless or abandoned children, such as the little angels of Mother Theresa Orphanage, Abuja. Let this Christmas be a time of unconditional love and giving for you. We invite you to visit our orphanage to share your blessings with these children. The daily needs of these children are many - and they include shelter, feeding, medicare, and education. Your material and financial donation will be appreciated. Give to these children who may never be in a position to repay you and watch God reward you!
    We invite you to share in the blessings that come from giving to these little ones.Wherever you are in the world, you can donate to Mother Theresa Orphanage, Abuja, one of Nigeria's most caring orphanages. Click here to donate.



The Abuja-based Mother Theresa Children's Home is one of Nigeria's best orphanages. Yet, with only seven years into its existence, it is among the youngest. In quality of service and personal attention to its wards, the orphanage is nearly incomparable with any other. Its founder, Yeye Bolanle Dare - who has the uncommon gift of bonding with every child there as if with her own child - and her retinue of committed staff, treat all the children like princes and princesses.

The environment in its entirety exudes such pleasantness and love, such warmth and compassion, every visitor cannot but get the impression he has walked into one big, closely-integrated family, rather than a house of isolated kids. "This is their home," Yeye Dare emphasizes, "the only home they've ever known. We give them maximum comfort and care and shower love upon each and every one of them so that they can grow up having a kinder and pleasant view of the world."

And even in their tender years here, these kids are subtly taught, not by preachment but by example, to care for and love each other. Thus, it is not uncommon in this extra-ordinary foster home to see a baby - probably a baby abandoned by her own mother - extending her affectionate hands to cater for another and give us all a reason to hope that amidst all the woes in this world tenderness will ultimately prevail.

"Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat."

Permanent Site for MTO

Nigeria’s frontline children’s home, Mother Theresa Orphanage Abuja, has got a permanent site. The new site is a 20-plot land at Kaigini, near Kubwa, FCT, Abuja.

There will also be a fully-equipped clinic and staff quarters, among other structures aimed at giving the children a sense of belonging and preparing them for a bright future.
