What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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.

Every Orphan's Hope-Zambia

We rescue, raise, and restore orphaned children to fulness of life in Zambia. Our children are raised to their full potential in Christ from newborn to 25 years old
in a family, in a home, and in a community where they are known and loved!

We do this through three programs:
1. Bethel Home-Our baby rescue mission provides focused and intentional familial care for orphans from newborn to 5 years old. Each child has a plan of service that will lead them to a forever family (reintegration when possible, domestic adoption, or My Father's House).

2. My Father's House-By pairing 8 orphans and a widow together in a new home, we've built and sustained 12 My Father's House family homes since 2004. The children in these homes are all school aged.

3. College-2-Career-Upon graduation from grade 12, our children transition to one of these homes with their brothers and sisters. During this season, the children are in trade school, college and university; and are beginning to learn independence. Upon graduation, we assist with job placement and after stability has been established, the child will be fully launched to independence.

Each of the above programs are funded through recurring monthly donors.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

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 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.
