30 Years

Sewing and Sowing Seeds of Hope

Serving Orphans, Widows, Others in Need

SOWN was founded as Caring for China's Orphans nearly 30 years ago to deliver basic needs to children in an orphanage in the Anhui province of China. In a long dreamed of expansion of the work, CFCO rebranded in 2023 to reflect ongoing support of families in Nigeria as well as support of widows and the elderly in Nashville.

Read more about our rebranding and the origins of "SOWN" on our About page.


What we do

We change lives. We do this through supplying basic needs to those we serve. Nutrition, education, clothing and medicine - these are basic needs all children, all humans, deserve to be able to access.  


Success Story

Meet David

David and his brother came to one of our partner orphanages when he was 8 years old and Jeannie had the privilege of not only watching him grow up with many trips to his orphanage, but be a guest at his wedding in 2016! David is pictured with Gidgette (on his left ), who at the time was a younger resident of the orphanage, along with Jeannie and two of the orphanage's youngest children. He is one of our kids who attended high school thanks to sponsorships and is now married and a father. ​ This is one of the many success stories of our journey and is due to the generosity of our supporters. Thank you!

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms” 

(1 Peter 4:10)
