Step up and Join us


The Klimbing for Kids campaign is a joint effort between Haven of Hope International and Metro World Child, an organization that provides hope for impoverished children around the world.  They’ve joined forces to raise awareness for vulnerable orphan children, and programs that support to provide hope and build futures.  Together, along with you, we can be the voice these children simply do not have. 

This October, Alice Skaff will join Pastor Bill Wilson, and climbers from around the world, to summit Africa’s highest mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro.  Climbing for five days and 175,000 feet of trail, through five diverse climate zones will not be an easy task. Neither is the journey for the millions of orphaned children without the help they desperately need.

HOHI’s Hope Impact strategies provide sustainable programs to struggling orphanages and the requests continue to come in.  By raising $1.00 per foot of trail ($175,000), we hope to help these children waiting for a lifeline.  We are thinking big and dreaming bigger – a concept we also teach the kids.

Join us through a one-time donation or take part in The Step Challenge Fundraiser. You may not want to venture up Mt. Kilimanjaro, but you may have a local mountain you’d like to take on or commit to a stair challenge.
