We strongly believe in the capacity that each child have within. Our program and activities are therefore designed in that way to explore and reach their goals.
Our organization is currently active in Mwanza, where we have been identifying and approaching street children ourselves with the help of the local police and woman & child welfare departement. Currently we provide care, support and protection for 60-70 children. We make sure each child has the ability to go to school and is provided with the necessery equipement like books and uniforms. We provide them home tuitions, health check-ups and medicines and make sure they have a daily nutritional meal. Besides that, different activities are organised for children to get stimulated and able to explore their talents and interests.
Hope children home is founded by Justin Cosmas. As a child, Justin experienced life as an orphan in Mwanza himself. In a later age, he also worked in an orphanage setting that, whilst providing some welcome relief to children’s suffering, highlighted the blinding truth that children deserve and require holistic care alongside supportive and guiding relationships with trusted adult.
We believe that children deserve and require holistic care alongside supportive and guiding relationships with trusted adults and that no child should ever be in the need of leaving their home. Therefore we also believe that the solution need to be found within the family itself and that it is still the best place and solution for a child to grow up. Within this mindset we help and support families by providing them tools and educate them to become the parent that fullfill the children’s needs. Financial support is therefor only provided for the child’s basic and educational needs. For the children who aren’t in the possibility anymore to live with their parents or family we provide them a safe foster family.
