About Us: Love Justice International (LJI) is a Christian nonprofit organization compelled by God's love to fight the world's greatest injustices. We fight injustice in two primary ways: through our expanding anti-human trafficking work and by caring for orphaned and abandoned children. We currently work throughout Asia and Africa.

Position Overview: LJI operates 17 family homes and one hostel for orphaned and abandoned children in Nepal, India, and Bangladesh.
