What’s This All About?
Forever Home at Living Hope
“I love worshiping God through singing. God is the One who made me and I will trust Him always. He is the God of all and I will dance for Him and do everything for Him in the name of Jesus.”
Living Hope is truly giving hope to orphaned children in Zambia. We are seeing our children become responsible adults succeeding in college, careers and most importantly sharing the hope of Christ, they have received. Give hope today!
See how our children come to living hope
Living Hope begins by praying to God and asking Him to guide us to the children He has selected for us. We generally choose children from the rural villages. We contact local pastors and community leaders to seek their help in identifying “at risk” children who would benefit from Living Hope’s care. Our first priority is “double orphans” – those children that have lost both parents, and are in the custody of ill equipped, disinterested, or, sadly, exploitative individuals. Secondly, we will accept “single orphans” – a child who has lost either the mother or the father and due to extenuating circumstances the remaining parent is unable or unwilling to care for the child. In many cases Living Hope is rescuing the child from a life of hunger, servitude and sometimes abuse.
We then confirm with the guardians or next-of-kin their willingness to give Living Hope custody (the right to raise the child). At that point, the guardian or next-of-kin must sign the appropriate documents providing Living Hope legal guardianship of the child. This is necessary in case the child would ever need medical attention. Living Hope will not pay guardians or next-of-kin to obtain children. We typically chose children between the ages of 6 and 9. Living Hope welcomes new children as we have the ability to provide for them, which is why sponsorship is so important.
