BNRP helps the orphans in many ways: food, clothing, blankets, shelter (building brick homes), school uniforms and materials, tuition and fees for high school, vocational training, and college.

The newest venture of BNRP is the Sindima Memorial Institute of Arts and Technology. Currently under construction is a school for 2,500 students to train in various skills, careers, and professions: accounting, architecture, business management, computer system technology, engineering, graphics, nursing, medicine, automotive technology,woodwork technology, among other programs.
