Who Are We?

 

We Support 450 Orphans and Vulnerable Children Annually

Family of Hope Services is based in Katutura, a former township on the outskirts of the capital city of Windhoek, in Namibia.  People in Katutura live in tin shacks and have no running water or electricity.  Yet they must pay for school fees, uniforms, books, exam fees, and support their children with very little income and no government support.

For 14 years we’ve been helping orphaned and vulnerable children in Namibia find a better life. 

    • We educate these kids to instill life skills so they have a chance in the world.
    • We feed these kids so they have the proper nutrition to nourish their bodies and keep them healthy.
    • We find sponsors for school, donors for food, sponsors for counseling and medical care, volunteers for tutoring and self-esteem building.
    • We help older kids (between 10 and 16) who’ve never been to school in their lives, to reach a level where they can get into the formal school system.
    • We give kids who feel helpless, a safety net to ensure they are protected.
    • We rely on donations of money for school fees, food, clothing, school items, toiletries, and furniture.
