Serving abandoned and disadvantaged children in Kisumu, Kenya SINCE 2007

The students that we serve consist of children from various disadvantaged groups, including but not limited to, children from backgrounds of poverty, abuse and HIV/AIDS in the Kisumu area. Hope for the Child will enable orphans to become adults who are able to contribute to society and defeat poverty for generations to come. Through education and community leadership initiatives, we inspire children to realize their full potential in life. The aim of HFTC is to bring not only food and substance to the body, but to nurture the mind and soul through love, education, and parental guidance.

"Kenya is among the world’s 30 poorest countries, ranking 152 out of 177 countries on the 2006 Human Development Index."

"More than 15 million people – including more than half the rural population – are without access to safe water or sanitation facilities."

1.2 million of school-going aged children remain unenrolled


Thank you for a tremendous year and helping us make a difference in so many lives. We look forward to a prosperous partnership in 2018 as we help so many more. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
