Welcome to Equip Orphan Outreach
"Our orphanage staff are wonderful, and have huge hearts, but many of them have limited or no education on the psychological effects of trauma."
- Orphanage director in Jinotega, Nicaragua
Awareness of this issue gave us the inspiration and vision to send experienced counselors and social workers to facilitate a 5-day workshop for orphanage staff all over the developing world, as well as a separate workshop for the orphans themselves. The workshops specifically help to identify and cope with issues such as anger, anxiety, self-esteem, and identity. We work with the kids on identifying feelings and behaviors, overcoming negative self-talk, and rectifying harmful behaviors. Also, we work with the staff to educate them on the psychological effects of trauma, and how to manage negative behaviors and emotional outbursts associated with past traumatic experiences.

"These workshops benefit us and help us work with the children. Not all of us have the capacity to take these courses, and we are thankful that you spend the time, money, and resources to bring these materials to us."
-Caregiver in Nicaragua
"It was incredible to see what an impact our small team of three was able to make in five short days. We not only saw the children open up and the walls come down, but we also saw the staff open up, and barriers breaking down with them too. They told us we had given them strength. I felt honored to have been able to bring hope to so many through this gifted organization."
