Who We Are

Orphan Advocates International (OAI) is a 501c3 volunteer based non-profit organization created to assist children living in orphanages through humanitarian aid, medical treatment, education, and safe housing.

Orphan Advocates was started over five years ago after Director Jeanette Dubanoski and her husband Mark adopted two children from Russia. They personally experienced the tragic conditions and situations these children cope with daily. Since that time, they have made it their goal to look for ways to help some of those children left behind. The first step was to start Orphan Advocates International, a 501c3 volunteer based non profit created specifically to assist children living in orphanages. What started out as a way to try and give back, has turned into a network of people who care and want to make a difference in these kids lives.
