THE ARCHIBALD PROJECT PRODUCES STORIES THAT INCREASE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE CARING FOR ORPHANED AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN AND HELP THEM THRIVE IN THEIR EFFORTS.
Stories that Create Family
There are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in this world, but getting involved is overwhelming and scary while staying involved requires help.
Our stories and resources provide you with the encouragement, answers, and support you need to get involved and thrive in this important work.
As more people get involved and stay involved, vulnerable children all over the world will have family.
The Power of a Story
Our Founding Story
In the fall of 2011, Nick and I felt led to document the adoption of a Bulgarian boy named Archie who has Down Syndrome. We made the trip to Bulgaria, and upon returning, posted the photos and story of the adoption on social media. A few weeks later, we received an email from a woman we had never met saying that she and her husband had seen the adoption story, were deeply moved, and were now adopting a child with a chronic illness because of Archie’s story. This woman further shared that had they not seen the photos of Archie’s adoption, they would have never found their child.
In that moment we realized that sharing stories like Archie’s had the potential to make an impact in the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children all over the world. So in 2012, we formed a non-profit centered around storytelling, naming it after Archie, whose adoption story started it all.
Since this adoption in 2011, The Archibald Project has grown into the leading Orphan Care Advocacy Organization and continues to help people all over the world get involved in caring for orphaned and vulnerable children.
