Programs + Results

What we aim to solve

In many places around the world, children do not have access to education, medical care, or other basic necessities. In Ukraine, parents of children with special needs are encouraged to put their children in state care. These children are sent to institutions where they are often subjected to abuse and neglect. There is little support, financial or emotional, for parents who choose to keep their children at home with them. Meanwhile, the children who live in the institutions need loving caregivers, cheerful surroundings and basic supplies, which are often in short supply. Children in the Philippines who live in extreme poverty lack access to quality healthcare. They are often denied government assistance, so medical conditions that could have been treated become life- threatening. This is particularly true of children with special needs. Even healthy children need tools to succeed in school, such as uniform, shoes, books, and supplies. These basic needs are often not met.

Maya's Hope works to improve the quality of life of orphaned, impoverished, and special-needs children on a global scale. Whether providing funding for loving caregivers, vitamin-rich formula, or access to quality medical care, Maya's Hope improves lives, one child at a time!

Through sponsorship and donations, donors provide funds to help with our programs which provide consistent care, education and access to medical care. Maya's Hope identifies children and families who are in great need and monitors the progress of each child through our charity partners in both the Philippines and Ukraine. We provide updates through social media to allow transparency of our programs and funding.

Maya's Hope would not exist if it wasn't for our wonderful volunteers and donors. We have strategic partnerships with charities that implement our programs in Ukraine and the Philippines. Thanks to our Board members, volunteers, and host committee at our home base in New York City, we improve and save lives one child at a time.

We provide updates to our donors on the progress of all children with the Maya's Hope programs. Donors and followers can find updates on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. www.facebook.com/mayashope www.instagram/com/mayashopefoundation

Maya’s Hope is currently sponsoring and providing care for 300+ children in the Philippines and 600+ children in institutions and foster homes in Ukraine. Since 2010, more than 45 children have been adopted thanks to awareness spread by Maya’s Hope. More than 60 life-saving medical procedures have been performed. Maya's Hope has expanded from one charity partner in Zaporizhia, Ukraine to 4 partners in both Eastern and Western Ukraine. Maya's Hope has taken children with rare conditions to help provide medical assistance. We plan on expanding our program in the Philippines to include more children with special needs.
