Rod and Sarah Martin founded Orphan Resources International in 2002, while visiting their first adopted child from Guatemala. During this time several orphanages where visited, and the great need for a support network was recognized. From this point ORI was developed on a small scale to take work teams and donations to 2 or 3 private Guatemalan orphanages. Over the last 6 years over 40 orphanages have been added to our list of support as the funding has increased. To date all of the programs in place have been funded by private monetary donations and or grants through foundations. Three years ago a shipping program was put into place for transporting donated goods by shipping containers to our warehouse in Guatemala. We also have volunteer programs in place to assist in the orphanages, including administrative directors and other support staff in country.
All the board members serving are all voluntarily giving of their time in providing general oversight to ORI.
