Hope for Children are helping orphaned, poor and exploited children all over the world. They work to improve the quality of life and advance the rights of children, and wherever possible, to provide practical support which allows children to grow up within their own families and communities.
Hope for Children (HOPE) is a small and growing charity that helps some of the most disadvantaged children in the World. HOPE works in 10 countries across Africa, Asia and Europe, working in areas largely unreached by other charities. Its mission is to provide practical support, such as education and healthcare, to improve children's quality of life, advance their rights and give them a better future. For HOPE, no effort is too big, no need is too small. This year alone HOPE has supported over 70,000 children.
HOPE's aims and objectives are to help disabled, orphaned, poor and exploited children, in particular those living in developing countries. This is achieved through providing, promoting and advancing children’s rights to basic necessities, including education and health care, aimed at sustaining their long term development. Here are two examples of HOPE projects:
The Kidzone Tulia Centre is situated next to the Mathare slum, one of the biggest city slums in Nairobi. It used to have around 25 young girls in full time residential care and schooling. With the appointment of a social worker and the development of more robust permanency strategies for the children, all 25 girls are now going home for the holidays to their families, either extended or immediate, and now only stay at the residential part of the programme during the school term as they live too far away to be day students. Longer term education plans are being developed for the children so as to try and eliminate the residential component all together where possible.
Walk to School, Uganda
This school sponsorship programme provides opportunity to disadvantaged children, primarily from the slums of Namuwongo where they face terrible conditions and have little hope of an education. Hope for Children works with St Barnabas Schools near Kampala where 108 of the 350 students at the school are in the sponsorship programme. However, resources on the ground are limited and many children face difficult personal circumstances.
Please support the REPLACE Campaign. Our objective is to get all children who are in orphanages placed into loving families and to prevent those who are at risk, from going into orphanages.
