Dear friend of Asia’s Hope,
Thanks to the generosity of our partners and supporters and the goodness of our God, we have built an innovative, effective and indigenously-led organization that is providing real homes and families for orphaned children and is transforming the communities in which they live.
Right now, we’re watching the first generation of kids to be rescued and raised at Asia’s Hope graduate high school, attend university and vocational training, get jobs, get married — and in some cases, return home to join our staff as teachers and caregivers!
We’ve learned a lot over the past decade and a half, and we’ve proven to ourselves — and to others — that residential orphan homes don’t have to be institutional: they can truly function as a family, providing the love and support each child needs to not only survive, but thrive.
I hope that this review will leave you both encouraged and inspired. As you read it, join me in thanking God for giving us the opportunity and the resources to provide family-style orphan care for kids at risk of sexual and economic exploitation, build high-quality schools for some of the world’s poorest children and provide university scholarships for bright young adults who have succeeded beyond even our dreams despite enduring the unimaginable trauma and loss that brought them into our care.
