Hope for the Nations (HFTN) exists in order to create hope in the lives of “Children at Risk” in developing countries. Hope for the Nations
focuses on children are “at-risk” due to conflict and war, extreme poverty and child trafficking.
To this end, Hope for the Nations helps to create community-based environments of care and opportunity for orphans and vulnerable children,
while equipping and supporting their caregivers and communities towards this goal. By investing in children, Hope for the Nations believes that
it is possible for “Today’s Orphans” to become “Tomorrow’s Leaders”.
Hope for the Nations works in partnership with other organizations towards the fulfillment of the UN Millenium Development Goals, and is
committed to ensuring that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is upheld in the communities in which we work.

More than a rescue operation, Hope for the Nations (HFTN) works in partnership with local and international organizations towards the long-term goal of seeing ‘Children at Risk’ transformed into ‘Tomorrow's Leaders’ through the provision of loving care, healthcare and education, and through building healthy communities and self-sufficiency.

partnerships. Accordingly, HFTN strategically aligns itself with nationals who share HFTN’s vision and values, but who may not have the means to
carry it out. Hope for the Nations’ “coalitions" always include:
- Leadership who oversee, guide and direct projects;

- Entrepreneurs who fuel projects through expertise, labor or finances;
- National Participation by leaders who share our vision and commitment.
