"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." - James 1:27 (English-NIV)
Since 2000, with the support of our friends, over 2000 children have benefited by having a safe and loving environment in which to grow and thrive. They have received a good education from primary to college. We have Masters's Degree graduates, doctors, nurses, teachers, high-ranking police officers, lawyers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and computer scientists, all having passed through New Hope and are now part of the robust New Hope Alumni who mentor the current New Hope population.
New Hope continues to impact the surrounding community by mobilising food donations for the poor and providing water during a drought.
We have built over 80 houses for poor grandmothers who would otherwise live on the roadside in sheds. We help educate their orphaned grandchildren. Over the years, the grandmothers move on to their properties with the help of their working grandchildren, and we get new occupants for their houses.
OAKRIDGE CENTER OF EXCELLENCE
In 2019, we set up the Oakridge Center of Excellence to provide quality education for the children in New Hope and the community in our education support program.
Oakridge has risen to a top-performing school in the region. We look to expand to the technical college level.
