OUR MISSION

Every 3 seconds a child is aging out of foster or orphan care. They mountain they must climb to lead successful lives is massive. Haven of Hope International is committed to help the world’s most vulnerable children: orphans. Through our Klimbing for Kids campaign, we are climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds to support their own climb toward leading successful lives.

 

OUR GOAL

Stretching 19,340 feet into the sky, Mt. Kilimanjaro is the world's tallest free-standing mountain. Klimbing for Kids is more than an excursion. It's an act of love. Our goal is to break the mold and revolutionize orphan care for the children that have no other option. Statistics show 99% of orphans may never be adopted. We have the opportunity to change their destiny and the destiny of future generations. We are committed to go to the most extreme heights to raise funds to help change the destiny of orphans around the world. Money raised will provide Future of Hope Scholarships. Future of Hope is a vocational sponsorship program that seeks to provide basic tools for success, identify career goals and possibilities, and assist with the transition out of the orphanage and into adulthood, including continuing education and college.

“The climb they have to success in life is harder than what we're going to be doing in one week.”

Alice Skaff, HOHI President
