Empowering Children at Risk to Become Children of Change
Our mission is to equip marginalized children to become leaders - those who affect positive change within their communities - by working together with local organizations within a wide variety of cultural contexts.
In the locations HOPE serves, we help create community-based environments of care and opportunity for orphans and vulnerable children, while equipping and supporting their caregivers, leaders, and communities toward sustainability.
“In conflict, famine, and poverty, children are the vulnerable ones who suffer most. The world is home to more than 1.2 billion at-risk children. We believe they deserve a better way to live. These children are at the heart of Hope for the Nations.”
To see children at risk transformed into tomorrow’s leaders by providing nurture, healthcare, education, and community-based care. We make a difference by starting the process of change.
Hope for the Nations began in 1994 with our first home for 25 children in Nepal.
We’ve grown rapidly since then, through partnerships with local organizations in the field, to help thousands of children.
Over the years, we’ve expanded into over twenty countries around the world: building drop-in centers, community-based homes, schools, farms, and children’s homes. We’ve also organized micro-enterprise programs, emergency aid relief, and critically-needed support services during times of crisis.
We consider Hope for the Nations to be a boutique NGO, which means we customize and tailor our work and projects around the communities in which we operate. This allows us to respond to the diverse cultural, political, and economic environments children face in different countries around the world.
Our focus has always been the safety and well-being of children. By addressing the environment and care of children, our projects begin to transform entire communities toward sustainability, growth, and opportunity.
