Summary

Education changes everything - especially for a girl living in the developing world. Hope Now is a home for 58 HIV-positive children including 27 girls. We have 9 girls in college or a trade school and the rest are in an English medium school. Our oldest Roja is a senior at KIMS Medical College working toward a bachelor degree in Physical Therapy and will graduate in 2020. We pay 100% of all college costs. We are committed to educating our girls to the level they desire to ensure a stable life.

Challenge

India has the third largest HIV epidemic in the world. In the developing world, access to healthcare is not free - if you have money you receive care, if not you don't. The Indian government is not able to care for HIV-positive children so when parents die, the children have few options. Hope Now provides a home, access to quality healthcare and an education through college for 58 HIV-positive orphans. Girls are particularly vulnerable in this patriarchal society. Hope Now provides a future.

Solution

Without Hope Now our kids would have no where to live, no education and no hope for a future. We provide a life filled with love, a family and a solid education through college or a trade school. Education is the most critical part of what we do. An education ensures a stable adult life when they are ready to pursue their dreams.

Long-Term Impact

By educating every child we ensure they will become part of a community, contribute to the economy and serve as ambassadors for people living with HIV/AIDS. None of our kids will pass on the virus, which - over time - will diminish the spread of HIV/AIDS within India. Our kids will live a normal life span. With a quality education they can and will change India as they move to more progressive society that includes girls at every level. Our Hope Now girls will be a part of that change.
