Dorries Promise / Forever Changed

Dorries Promise aka Forever Changed International

Dorie’s Promise Guatemala is an orphanage run by Forever Changed International. Heather Radu founded Forever Changed International in 2009, as an extension of her two decades working with orphans worldwide.

Our vision is to meet the needs of the most vulnerable children in the world. We work to provide a place for these orphans to find a loving home. Dorie’s Promise Guatemala is our first orphanage, and we look forward to expanding into other countries as the Lord leads in the future.

Every gift you give to our ministry goes toward improving the lives of children who would otherwise have no other hope. Please consider sponsoring a child today!

Our goal

Our goal is to see Dorie’s Promise Guatemala fully funded by monthly sponsors. To do that, we want every child to be sponsored at 120 percent. Why 120 percent? In order to take in new children, we need to have resources readily available to accept them into our home.
