The enormous suffering of millions of children in the third world is an overwhelming problem to say the least. This is particularly the case in sub-Saharan Africa, where decades of poverty and the AIDS epidemic are claiming tens of thousands of lives each year, and the number of AIDS orphans is ready to jump into the millions. What is the Church to do in light of such an important but seemingly impossible situation?
With her father's consent, Nicole Boone founded Goshen International in 2001 to begin to respond to this question. Goshen is a non-denominational international supplemental education program that offers a community-based solution to a variety of social problems through education, food and medical aid, with a vision to significantly advance a given population in one generation. Goshen began its first Learning Center (KLC) in Kurland, South Africa where several hundred children, many orphans, live in third-world conditions.
