Hope for
Children at Risk

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 that they deserve a better way to live. These children are at the heart of Hope for the Nations.


Our Story

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 twenty-one countries around the world: building drop-in centers, community-based homes, and schools. We’ve also organized micro-enterprise programs, emergency aid relief, and critically-needed support services.

We consider Hope for the Nations to be a “boutique” NGO, which means we customize and tailor our work around our

projects’ unique communities. 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 a community’s children, our projects begin to transform entire communities.

We seek to empower children at risk to become children of change.


Our Core Values

Faith-based Principles

We are a faith-based development organization that is dedicated to working with, and on behalf of, the world’s most marginalized and vulnerable population – “at-risk” children.

Community-based Care

Motivated by our faith in God’s love for these children and His ability to transform lives, we believe that children grow and develop best in a loving environment within a community setting.


We believe that partnership with individuals and local organizations is essential to sustainable development and local ownership of projects.


Accountability is essential in all the work we do. Country directors, staff, and volunteers are accountable to the Hope for the Nations Board of Directors. All financial transactions are open to the scrutiny of government, the Board of Directors and any who ask.


We empower children from all backgrounds regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender to become leaders in their communities, affecting positive change and development.
