Why GIOF Exists

Genesis Diez Ministries / Why GIOF Exists

01Why GIOF Exists

Genesis International Orphanage Foundation

Was established by Ken & Greg Amstutz, two brothers, who desired to help the children in orphanages of Baja California, Mexico while affecting the lives of volunteers from the US, Canada & Mexico. In 1999, Genesis Diez A.C. came into existence as a non-profit, tax-exempt Mexican educational civil association. Then in 2001, Genesis International Orphanage Foundation achieved the official U.S. government 501 (c)(3) non-profit, tax exempt educational organization status.

Mission: Genesis International Orphanage Foundation desires to be ambassadors in creating awareness and financial support to the Mexican Genesis Diez’s Healing programs and the Beautiful Gate Orphanage.  The children they serve are rescued precious children that were Abandoned, Abused, Enslaved & Traumatized.

Vision: Genesis International Orphanage Foundation partners with national and international Government, non-government, private institutions and individuals to create opportunities for these displaced children that God brings to Mexico’s Genesis door.
