Our purpose is to create awareness in the United States about the God-given mission to raise One Million Orphan Leaders Worldwide by 2030 and raise funds in order to rescue, raise and train orphaned, abandoned and at-risk children.
Hopegivers takes a holistic approach to every ministry we operate. We don’t just feed the children: we feed, clothe, shelter, provide medical care, educate and love every child as any parent would.
We have several long-term goals, but our primary goal here in the US is to communicate the mission and the needs necessary to accomplish that mission to as many people as possible. We are praying for ministry partners who will pray for us and financially contribute to the mission of One Million Orphan Leaders Worldwide by 2030! The children we raise, train and send out into their communities continue the cycle of rescuing and sharing the love of Christ with more children.
We ask for prayer, offer updates through email and the mail, and leave the rest up to God.
Presently (2014) we are caring for 5000 orphans. Our long-term goal is to consistently care for a minimum of 10,000 orphans at any one time. Prior to the 2006 persecution, we did have 10,000 orphans under our care.
All of our children are raised in Hope Homes that are managed by “house parents” – many who were once orphans themselves. Our Hope Homes care for a minimum of 10 children up to 2500 in our largest location.
No. We do have several that are fully sponsored, but most have only some level of sponsorship. We also have Hope Homes that receive no help at all!
We trust God every month to bring in the funds when donors choose to give through “Where Most Needed”. Those are the funds we primarily use to help us keep the Hope Homes not fully sponsored functioning. By the grace of God, this has worked well for many years.
Yes. We minister to lepers. We also give shelter, clothing, food, medical attention, and vocational training to Dowry Castaway women (burned brides). We also care for their children in our Hope Homes. We raise support for widows, for the families of martyrs, children with AIDS, and blind children. We also minister to children in the slum areas near our churches and Hope Homes.
Costs vary according to location, but generally $25,000 will build one of our smaller Hope Homes.
Depending on the location and size – $10,000
Yes! Hundreds do every year. They come to see the children, Dowry Castaway women and the lepers. Hopegivers’ Indian staff creates an itinerary based on what you want to see, how you want to help and how long you want to stay. The staff – both US and in India – plans trips that are interesting, informative, safe and spiritually rewarding.

Invite one of our ministry speakers to share about the ministry at a Sunday morning, Sunday evening service, a youth group/conference, men’s or women’s ministry group or conference. This is a great way to get the word out to many people at one time. When you help us spread the word about the ministry, God moves on hearts and more children are rescued!
