Shalom Foundation Enhancement Center Inc. is an organization registered in the U.S. It is created to provide shelter, social, and religious education to disadvantaged children. In partnership with Shalom Foundation Enhancement Center is Shalom Foundation for Children Enhancement International (which includes Shalom Foundation Orphanage) an organization based in Nigeria, West Africa. Both organizations are non-for-profit, and non-governmental organizations. Shalom Foundation for Children Enhancement International caters for a wide array of children including deprived, destitute, and/ or abandoned children and adolescents. Other than deprivation (as these are children from socioeconomically challenged families), and abandonment, about 20 % of our children are developmentally, emotionally, and/or mentally challenged. Overall, the children can be categorized into the following groups; orphans (both or single parented), children given up at birth by teenage mothers, children placed temporarily in the orphanage due to parent’s physical disability, children of deceased HIV victims, children from homes of separated parents, and children from unstable, insane, and/or mentally challenged mothers. In a way, the organization serves as orphanages, foster care, and mental health center. Overall, the organization provides comprehensive care that includes food, shelter, education, legal assistance, spiritual, and moral guidance. Adoption and foster care services are available. In addition, in terms of educational assistance the organization runs a government approved Montessori elementary & nursery school for both the children of the center and the public as well. Other programs provided within the organization are a growing bible school and a mini feeding outreach for the immediate neighborhood. Donations are the source of our survival.
