Austin Omobhude grew up in Nigeria, and when he became a successful businessman in Canada, he wanted to give back to his home country and home village. He has a vision for a children's home where abandoned babies can grow up in a loving family environment.

Project Scope

Mary’s Home for children will house 50 orphans and other vulnerable children in family-style cottages with house-parents to provide them with a family upbringing. Through partnership with local churches, this ministry envisions a primary and post-primary school on a portion of the property. The land has been secured with a perimeter wall and is ready for master planning as well as building and infrastructure design.

Will you join us in helping to master plan and phase this 1/4 hectare site as we bring vision toward reality for children who need a place to call home?
