We promote primary education for the orphans, vulnerable and abandoned children and we also support them with scholastic materials like books, pencils, and pens. Our education services provide skills and knowledge that will last a life time.
Due to poor medical facilities, many of our orphans have been attacked by different kinds of diseases like chicken pox, jiggers, typhoid and malaria. Your support towards medication facilities is warmly welcomed.
We provide shelter to the total orphans and homeless children but due the high number of the children than the facilities, the shelter conditions are poor. The children lack mattresses, mosquito nets and blankets. This has resulted into poor health conditions.
Vangrace Compassion Orphanage provides daily nutritional meals twice for the orphans, vulnerable and abandoned children. The orphanage also has a garden which helps to sustain this vital feeding program, which has helped to improve the concentration, stamina and general health of the vulnerable children.

One Of Our Mission Is To Produce Sound Morally And Self-Reliant Citizens Through Provision Of A High And Good Standard Practical Education For The Orphans, VCM Set Up A Primary School Which Is Currently Providing Good Quality Education To The Orphans.
The God's Village school is currently in temporary and not so good wooden structures that are always destroyed by termites and some rodents. There is currently a total staff of six teachers and 279 pupils that’s a ratio of approximately 1:39 respectively which is high for the pupils.
pupils study under trees as the wooden structures cann't serve all; this disturbs children during harsh weather conditions like too much sunshine and rainfall.
Absence of learning materials like charts, textbooks, Exercise books and many others stationery is also another great Challenge.
