Since 2012, my colleagues and I have been deeply moved by the level of trauma and suffering endured by different vulnerable groups of people due to poverty, disease, domestic violence and war. Families are torn apart, mental health problems are common, and many orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) are unable to attain their developmental milestones as well as educational goals. As a result, many people have abandoned the idea that life can ever be normal again.
Hope Partners Africa was begun to restore hope and to help vulnerable people rebuild their lives through care of their physical needs and provision of health care services, school fees or tuition, mentorship, research and other innovations.
We are confident that vulnerable people, whether they are families living day to day as refugees or orphans and other vulnerable children found by the side of the road, can be made whole and hopeful. We invite you to join us in this great work. Bring your expertise or donate to support this incredible work knowing that together we can make a difference.
