Hope Community Center Kenya Charity Profile
In fact, the volunteers and teams who minister to our children come from many different (countries,regions, Christian denominations), as do the staff who work in our orphanage.
Our passion is to love the most desperate and vulnerable children in the communities where we serve and to permanently change the direction of their lives. The needs of children at risk around the world are staggering, and those needs cannot be met unless many different individuals, churches and organizations work together, each committing themselves to that part of the task which they have been called to accomplish. Accordingly, it is our desire is to work cooperatively with every other person, church or organization who shares in our heart and our vision for helping these children.
