Identifying and training best practices in residential orphan care
Who We Are
We are a group of trainers and investors from diverse backgrounds who care deeply about orphans. Our mission is to transform the lives of high-risk orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) by improving the quality of care in orphanages around the world. We follow a mentorship model, walking closely with OVC care providers, addressing their specific individual concerns, and following their progress for years after training.
Here's the Problem
Millions of kids are growing up in orphanages, and they are not growing into successful adults. Substance abuse. Prostitution. Incarceration. Homelessness. Suicide. Most of them are failing by any social measure, and their children often end up in the same alternative care system that failed them.
What We Do
Love is not enough. Children also need structure, stability, security. Children growing up in orphanages need a safety net when they age out, and a real chance to succeed as independent adults.
Hope Institute partners with OVC care providers. We teach research-driven strategies that have proven successful in the field, and we adapt the training experience to each unique program. Because our training is highly customized, we have been able to address the challenges of OVC programs in 4 countries.
