Brighter Futures Unfolding: Celebrating HOHI’s Future of Hope Scholarship Awardees

In the heart of January’s chill, there was a warm wave of hope sweeping across Africa and South America, thanks to Haven of Hope International (HOHI). This year, through the transformative “Klimbing for Kids” campaign, HOHI proudly awarded 32 Futures of Hope scholarships. These scholarships are not just financial aids; they are the keys to unlocking a world of possibilities for high school, university, college, and vocational training for residents aging out of orphan care.


Education beyond the elementary level in many countries is neither mandatory nor free. This gap often leaves young individuals at a critical age without essential skills or education. HOHI, under the passionate leadership of one of its founders, Alice, is dedicated to filling this gap. Alice’s commitment stems from a deep understanding of the challenges faced by children aging out of orphan care. Her vision is clear – every child should have access to education and marketable job skills, paving their way to a self-sufficient and fulfilling life.


The “Klimbing for Kids” campaign in 2023 marked a significant milestone in this journey. The 32 scholarships awarded are more than numbers; they represent dreams, aspirations, and the future of many young lives. These scholarships cover a wide range of educational and vocational pursuits, acknowledging the diverse talents and interests of these young individuals. Each awardee’s story is a testament to their resilience and the belief that education is a powerful tool in shaping their futures. These are miracle stories in the making.


The excitement among the directors of these orphanages is palpable. They have often shared their concerns about children aging out without adequate skills or education. Now, they see a new chapter unfolding – one filled with hope and opportunities.


As HOHI continues its mission, the impact of these scholarships is a beacon of hope, highlighting the importance of supporting education at every level. It’s a step towards empowering these young minds, ensuring they don’t just survive but thrive in the world beyond orphan care. The Futures of Hope scholarships are more than just financial support; they are investments in a brighter, more hopeful future for every recipient.
