Welcome to Theresa’s House

A place for children in need in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

About Theresa’s House

Founded by Theresa Kashale in 2006, Theresa’s House is a collaborative project between the communities in Sioux Falls, SD and Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Our mission is to provide protection for children who have been left orphaned or abandoned in the Congo due to years of civil war and the AIDS epidemic. We promote their integration into the social mainstream by providing shelter, food, and education.

You Can Pray

Although the Democratic Republic of the Congo has known much trauma and war, it has also been blessed with exquisite beauty and abundant natural resources. Pray that God will raise up wise leaders to lead and protect the Congolese people.

Isaiah 58:11
