The Philippines has among the highest incidences of child trafficking and sexual abuse including internet pornography.
Recent statistics have shown that 54% of those abused in OSEC (Online Sexual Exploitation of Children) cases are children under the age of 12. Because we know that this breaks God`s heart, we are doing something about it.
Rancho provides a safe haven for girls who have been rescued out of the evils of online sex trafficking.
At the Rancho, children will be taught about the love of Christ. In addition to basic food, shelter and medical care, they will also receive counseling, mentoring, and life skills training.
There is an on-site school where the girls will be able to complete junior high school. They are also taught music, dance, arts & sports.
To encourage sustainability, Rancho cultivates a variety of fruits and vegetables and even chickens, ducks and a goat.
Our dream is to have completed campus which consists of 10 cottages, a school, gym, chapel, clinic and staff housing.
Completed and on-going projects include:
Construction of canteen/kitchen - Project Completed- June 2020
Construction of library/clinic - Project Completed - January 2021

Rancho ni Cristo began operations on December 2015. Currently, Rancho ni Cristo is taking care of 34 girls, ages 5-20.
Due to the sensitive nature of this program, specific information about the children in the home will not be given on this website. Sponsorship opportunities exist for those who are willing to help provide the intensive care the children receive at Rancho Ni Cristo. Sponsorship is $25/month with 4 sponsors needed per child. Those interested in sponsoring one of these children should also be aware that any specific information concerning the child's true identity cannot be shared with the sponsors. Sponsors will receive an information sheet using an alias name for the child and a photo of the child that does not reveal their face. These measures are necessary by law in the Philippines to protect these children from further exploitation.
For more information or to inquire about sponsoring a child, please contact us using the Contact Us form on this website.
