A Child's Hope is developing a new model of orphanage – what we have come to refer to as an "Academy" – that will provide a home and living environment and provide parental/family aspects of growing up for Haitian orphans. Realizing how most orphanages are there merely designed to keep kids fed and to provide shelter – our goal is to provide an environment aimed at giving kids a real shot at life in an educational, vocational, recreational, and spiritual way.
We want to create a place where children can grow and develop their God given talents to become productive citizens and leaders of Haiti. We are not talking about just another orphanage. Our model is designed to work with a wide range of partners to develop an entirely different kind of environment for lost children. Learn more »
"A Child's Hope" is conceived to provide a safe, loving and supportive Christian home for abandoned children of Haiti.
Our mission is to provide lost or abandoned children a home, an education and life skills that will allow them to rebuild and lead the Haiti of tomorrow.
Our vision is to create a home for lost children in Haiti. With a Christian foundation, the focus will be on education, and the physical and mental well being of each child.
Our ultimate goal is for these children of Hope to grow and mature to become productive leaders in the Haitian Society.
As founders of "A Child's Hope," we want to join with Haitian partners who share a common Christian vision to aid Haiti in its rebuilding efforts.
Our chosen path is to work with Haiti's orphaned, abandoned and lost children–an underserved and decidedly underprivileged group.
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is: to look after orphans
and widows in their distress... – James 1:27
We believe in strong family values that have the children's best physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual interest at heart.
"train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old
he will not turn from it." – Proverbs 22:6
Our goal is to involve Haitians to the utmost in this program and to embrace the Haitian culture
We are committed to see the "A Child's Hope" community flourish and thrive for its members as they grow and progress through the program.
"A Child's Hope" will be a home for its members to look to as family.
"A Child's Hope" will provide a multi-lingual curriculum. Creole will be the primary language with English & French as secondary languages. Speaking the different languages will enhance the students' potential as they become employed and serve their country.
The Haitian culture is to be respected and it will form the foundation for the social and educational programs at "A Child's Hope"
The Founders will provide opportunities for others to serve.
The Founders have no economic or monetary incentive from these efforts.
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the lord, not men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
