Talita Cumi Children's Home

Raising abandoned children into realized adults for God's glory

He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talita cumi!” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, rise up!”
-Mark 5:41-

Talita Cumi is a place of refuge for orphaned, abused, and abandoned children ages 4 to 18 in the city of Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Talita Cumi means child, arise! It speaks to the spirit of these children, and children everywhere, whose resiliency rises above the apparent limitations of their situations.
