Hope Rising Homes Foundation is about providing safe homes for Orphans, Vulnerable and At-Risk Children. Our goal is to provide hope for these children so they can attain a brighter future and a vision of life beyond their present vulnerable situations. As our name is, we hope to give them a better life.
The number of orphans and vulnerable children in Nigeria in 2014 is estimated at 17.5 million, out of which 7.3 million are orphaned by HIV/AIDS . Some of these children are left with their poor grandparents, some of the children are with mentally ill mothers, sleeping under the bridges, while others roam on streets, exposing them to vulnerable situations of either being sexual exploited at a young and tender age or being sold into child labor. Majority of these children are denied basic rights.
This project will provide a safe and permanent home for the children. It will reduce the suffering of the orphans and vulnerable children, It will build their capacity through giving them love, care, good food education and simple activities to do so. It will provide adequate education to make them good citizens and have a better future through good education right from a tender age.
We strongly believe that with proper intervention, these children will thrive, develop to their full potential, and positively influence and contribute to their immediate communities and to the society at large. It will create awareness to the community and the outside world for the need to protect, promote, preserve and support the vulnerable children and the orphans including their rights.
