We are coming back to Atlanta! We want to save the world! We want to save the orphans and young children in Africa! We are coming to Ga Tech in Atlanta on October 8, 2016. We want to raise awareness, raise funds, and develop partnerships in Atlanta and other US cities to help orphans and little children in Africa. We will organize a 5 km Run, a 5km Walk, and a World Record African Dance. We will publish more details soon.
HOPE worldwide Africa would like to thank you for your support of our work with Orphans and Vulnerable Children and Early Childhood Development in Africa. We have begun to scale up Early Childhood Development in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Botswana and it will be used in the churches and the communities that we serve. During 2015 we reached 12,000 young children with Early Childhood Development and we are tracking their progress in nutrition, health, education, and child protection. The impact in the lives of the young children is enormous!
The orphan epidemic in Africa due to AIDS continues to grow and UNICEF has estimated that there are 18,000,000 orphans in Africa that now face increasingly desperate challenges due to lack of health care, education, nutrition, child protection, and increasing poverty. Millions of young girls are now at risk of rape, abuse, and violence. HOPE worldwide has worked with orphans in Africa for 20 years and it has provided care and support to over 172,000 orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, and South Africa.
Funding contributed for the orphans will supply food, educational materials, health care, staff salaries training, capacity building, and program development for these programs in Africa. See Facebook page for HOPE worldwide Africa for more information. Please contact us if you have any questions. Please give our love and thanks to all the disciples.
