Haven of Hope International currently has an overwhelming amount of orphanages that are vetted and ready to move forward with implementing the necessary programs to meet the complex needs of their children, we simply lack the funding to move forward.

People from different backgrounds and professions can become change agents by organizing many contributions, through a fundraising team. Members not only help to fund but they can also choose to offer their time and talent and join us on a mission trip to see firsthand the impact their giving is making.  Its a great way to spend your time together really making a difference in appreciative children that have no parental support.


 Haven of Hope International strengthens and empowers orphanages to rescue, love, restore, and equip the abused and abandoned children they serve. Here are our 3 Hope Impact strategies for you to consider as you are starting up your fundraiser.

Hope Transformation

We work with directors of orphanages to create a 2-3 year strategy that fills in the gaps and training for staff in Trauma Informed Care, strengthens and implements sustainable programs that will equip children to thrive as adults.

Hope Infusion

 Improving global orphan care through specific sustainability projects, programs (psychological, discipleship, academic education, vocational training) and site improvements.

Hope Global Rescue

 Rescuing orphanages from closing with basic operational funding.


Looking for a way to help with one of our Hope Impact Strategies but its too much for you tackle on your own?  Organizing a group of people you are already associated with is a wonderful way to make a significant difference through multiple or sustained donations.

Your fundraiser can be small and informal – a neighborhood dinner or a golf or tennis league that could fund a Hope Infusion or they can be highly organized like a neighborhood community, a corporation or a church and involve contributions of thousands of dollars and demonstrate a commitment of many years – this would be a perfect way to fund a Hope Transformation by Adopting an Orphanage.

Interested in moving some mountains for our kids? Klimbing for Kids Campaign is a great way to get the whole family involved this summer and partner with our founder, Alice Skaff, while she trains for Mt. Kilimanjaro in October.  Explore some creative fun-draising ideas and how you can Name your Mountain and find your stride through some fun virtual climb fundraisers .



Support our founder, Alice Skaff, as she takes on Mount Kiliminjaro with the founder of Metro World, Pastor Bill Wilson in the Klimbing for Kids campaign.  Both determined to raise awareness and provide hope to children that would otherwise have no hope.  Get involved individually or set up a team to help HOHI promote positive change in an orphan’s life.


In most orphanages, when a child turns 18 they are asked to leave to make room for younger ones. Statistics show that the practice leads to youth being ill-equipped to handle living on their own. In the majority of cases, out of desperation and no skills, they end up on the street. Unfortunately, many times they end up in a life of crime or poverty to survive.  Find out how you can provide hope for their future.

Brainstorm with your peers about the potential you can create through a fundraising team.  The skies the limit on what you do together.  What better cause than to change the destiny for orphaned children?
