DONATE BASICS Wherever possible we provide blankets, winter jackets, a change of clothing, shoes, hygiene products, solar lights, medical care for emergencies, and intervention to protect a child from harm. We collect donations and various items from individuals and companies to address these needs of our children.
SPONSOR EDUCATION We fund orphans and vulnerable children to go to school for a year. Some children go to government schools, and those who are older we tutor so that they can return to school or enter school for the first time. We provide counseling to more than 60% of our children because of trauma they’ve experienced. We teach life skills and leadership skills.
FEED A CHILD We feed more than 200 children one meal a day, five days a week. We also provide a vitamin drink to give them energy. For most of these kids, this will be their only meal. In Namibia, one out of three children is malnourished. The children at our Centre have access to clean water to drink and wash with while at our Centre, and they have toilet facilities they can use.
Our book features the stories of many children and women who rely on Family of Hope for support. 100% of all proceeds from the sale of the digital book goes to helping the kids in any of the areas where we have shortfalls. This could include buying food, shoes, solar lights, counseling and more. Buy as a gift for your friends and family.

“After visiting FHS’s premises and seeing what they do for so many kids on a shoe‐string budget, we were moved and impressed. We know our donation is going to a worthy cause. When we see so many community people volunteering to cook food, clean the facility, and watch over the kids within the community to make sure they are safe, we know the community believes in this organization as well.”
