About This Ministry

“I want to see what is the best way to help children without families – what is that?”

Asked director, Samuel Rich. And so they set out on a 22 nation journey for two years, with a lean budget from crowdfunding and donations from family and friends. Statistics appeared daunting at the start, 8-10 million children living in orphanages, and 100 million on the streets, but the more the team traveled, the more hope for family began to emerge. 70+ interviews with social workers, advocates, doctors, and authors revealed strategies that the team is now sharing with the world in their film.


Our Focus

In April of 2013, the LOST KITES team came together in Kona, Hawaii. They had recently completed two documentary projects and overseas volunteer service in Argentina, Panama, Rwanda, Uganda, India and Nepal with media advocacy non-profit, A Voice for the Voiceless. They had all witnessed the plight of children separated from their family, and wanted to do something about it.

We promote three major action steps:

Safely transfer global funding from orphanages to family-based care

Increase the number of workers to prevent separation and restore children to families

Encourage foster care and adoption when necessary
