Our Mission

To produce high quality products in collaboration with local artisans and craftsmen to create opportunity and serve orphans.

Our Philosophy

At Amado, we believe every child deserves a family and every family deserves a liveable wage. Our vision is to preserve and support families through our business. By providing high quality products in collaboration with local artisans and craftsmen, we seek to maximize opportunity by creating long-term impact that supports local families and protects vulnerable children.

We see this as a collective effort. Every single one of our partners — our artisans and craftsmen, our suppliers, our printers, our designers, our employees, our orphan care partners — all share this exact heartbeat. We believe this vision will only be accomplished through strong, healthy relationships with everyone on our team. After all, we’re better together.

Your purchase at Amado both tells a story and provides a future. Thank you for joining us by purchasing responsibly and partnering with us to serve orphans around the world. Welcome to the Amado family!

Why We Exist

At the heart of Amado is family and the passionate belief that every child around the world deserves a healthy one. With each purchase, up to 50% of profits go towards supporting long-term orphan care initiatives.

Because family is the answer to the orphan crisis, Amado’s primary giving goes towards supporting adoptions. We view adoption as the ultimate solution for providing a vulnerable child with a loving home if family reunification isn’t possible. We do this by providing grants for families to help cover adoption costs.

Another initiative includes supporting children’s homes around the world that operate with a family-style orphan care model. Family-style orphan care differs vastly from the traditional approach of institutional care. By creating a model inspired by the nuclear family unit, with ongoing support for the local and indigenous house parents who remain committed throughout the journey, these children are set up for much greater levels of psychological, emotional, spiritual, and societal success. In cases where this model of care is not available, Amado looks to support organizations that come as close to the family-style care model as possible.
