What we aim to solve

Every Orphan's Hope was formed in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Zambia; specifically to care for the orphan and widow left on their own after the death or desertion of their caretaker and provider. Our mission is to care for orphans and widows in tangible ways by providing them with a home and creating a new family by placing 8 orphans in a home with 1 widow. The widow becomes their mother and raises them to adulthood while we provide the infrastructure and support needed to do so.

We are aiming to restore life to these children and widows by giving them back a family in which they can thrive. Additionally, we provide all they need to fully reach their innate potential. Ultimately, we want to see a generation of kids rise up in Zambia and help the nation as a whole rise above poverty and embrace a better future.

We have a holistic approach to orphan care from newborn to young adult. We have three programs that serve as a process for the care we provide. A baby will start in our Bethel Home which is a nursery home for children newborn to 5 years old. This home has a 1 to 5 direct ratio to mother care and less than that when you include relief mothers and staff. When a child is not reintegrated or domestically adopted from Bethel, they move into our second program, My Father's House, at age 5. These homes are permanent family homes made up of 8 orphaned children and 1 widow. The children are provided with all needs necessary for them to reach their fullest potential. When a child graduates grade 12 and is ready for the next step in their education, they transition to our College-to-Career homes in which they learn independence along side their brothers and sisters. During this time the child receives an education via trade school, college and university. Our team works with each child on future plans and goal setting for life. Once a child graduates and has a stable and sustaining job, they are formally launched into adulthood.

We have been serving our children for 16 years and have done so successfully. We have a strong donor base who provides much of the funding for our programs through sponsorship, recurring monthly gifts, and large major gifts. Additionally, we have two organization led businesses in Zambia (raising chickens and selling bicycles) that assist with 20% of the required budget for our non-profit organization.

Our organization is able to track the progress of each child. We do this through tracking their mental, social, educational, and health statuses. We have on-site social workers responsible for ensuring each child is thriving and for reporting to the social welfare department of the government. We have seen a high graduation rate in comparison to the country's national average. Additionally, our children that have been launched into adulthood have solid and stable careers.

Our organization has grown to include a full baby rescue mission in which we currently have capacity (and serve) 20 babies. Additionally, we have grown to 12 My Father's House family homes and over the next two years will have 55 children in our college-2-career program (currently at 26). Over the next 3 years, we plan to expand our ministry to make room for additional children. The plan is as follows: 2020-Build a new Bethel Home which doubles our capacity (from 20 to 40 babies) 2021-Purchase a College-to-Career property in which our students are able to all live on the same property and have a mama near by. This will expand capacity from 26 to 55/60 kids and will provide long term infrastructure for the program. 2022-Build 4 additional My Father's House homes in order to care for more children as they are brought to us by social welfare or through Bethel Home.
