There are an estimated 153 million orphans in the world today (UNICEF). This reality, as well as our biblical mandate to care for those in need, gives cause for action and is the reason Taylor University has created a program led by Dr. Scott and Professor Jennifer Moeschberger to equip students to care for orphans and vulnerable children.
