Senate Resolution Congratulates The God's Child Project

Conrad and Hoeven Sponsor A Bill on the Bismarck Non-Profit's 20th Anniversary

Washington - Senator Kent Conrad introduced a resolution in the U.S. Senate recognizing the efforts and accomplishments of The God’s Child Project and congratulating the Bismarck based nonprofit on its 20th anniversary.  Senator John Hoeven is an original co-sponsor of the legislation, which praises the work of The God’s Child Project and its founder Patrick Atkinson for working to improve the lives of impoverished children across the world.

"We commend God’s Child for its two decades of compassion and support for the less fortunate, especially the thousands of orphaned and abandoned children around the world. Patrick and all the volunteers with God’s Child are empowering children, helping them escape the bonds of poverty,” Senators Conrad and Hoeven said in a joint statement.

The legislation commends the organization for its efforts to help thousands of women and children break free from poverty and exploitation.

More than 5,000 orphaned, abandoned, and impoverished children and nearly 8,700 widowed, abandoned, and single mothers and their dependents on three continents receive care from, and are educated by, The God’s Child Project.

The God’s Child Project operates schools, a family clinic, social work department, psychology clinic, domestic violence program, legal aid department, and a center for malnourished children.
