Where Does Your Money Go?
First of all, Hopegivers International is not an adoption agency. In fact, Hopegivers International is international for a reason. We do not offer the children for adoption, nor do we simply provide hope for the “now”, but for the “here AND now”, for the future, and for eternity. Our mission is not just to provide a meal tomorrow and a bag of clothes the next, but to rescue, take in and provide full orphan care for the children living on the streets in India. Hopegivers International provides 24/7 care to the orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk. Orphans in India can rest peacefully at night in the warmth of a bed, under the roof of a “Hope Home”, with clothes on their back, food to eat, education, healthcare, and love from a family environment that LIVE to SERVE them.
Not your ordinary….YES! We agree. 24/7 orphan homes known as Hope Homes are what make us unique. This is what we call a “holistic approach” to raising up leaders in India today, but raising orphan leaders worldwide is our overall goal. We rescue and house orphans, raising them up to be productive members of society; leaders in their community!
When you need advice, do you go to people who have never experienced what you are going through? Probably not. You want to talk with someone who understands your dilemma.
So, who better to change the lives of the lost, lonely, and abandoned than the ones living within that culture, society, corruption, and desperation? These children live it, know it, understand it and grow up passionate to make the change they want to see.
We desperately need your support in order to continue not only feeding and clothing, but RAISING these children – and bringing in additional orphans who are without hope on their own – to be the next generation that will rescue more children.
Here are some of the ways your donation helps in the fight against orphan rescue
$150: Your gift provides full orphan care for a child for one month. This includes food, clothing, shelter, education, and normal medical needs like vaccines and flu shots.
$150 may not seem like a lot, but it works! Whether you contribute monthly or give a one time gift, thank you for your heart to help one more child have a chance in this life and in the next.
$50: Provides a Christmas Hope Chest which includes: a new outfit, a new pair of shoes, a blanket, socks, underwear, a sweet treat, some toiletries, a new Bible and a small toy/gift for every orphan.
The children we rescue have never received a Christmas gift! If they ever heard about Christmas in their world prior to Hopegivers, they never understood the reason for our celebration. Every Hope Chest says “I have a future and a hope!” It says, “I am loved; I am not invisible!”
Please put at least one orphan at the TOP of your Christmas list this year. If you cannot contribute the full $75, please give what you can so that every child receives a Hope Chest on December 25th.
$50: Gives one orphan a Hope Pack.
A Hope Pack is needed for each child before starting the school year. It includes: a new book bag that is filled with a new uniform, new shoes and some toiletries, pencils, paper, pens and other grade specific supplies that are used up by the end of every school year.
Children grow! They need bigger uniforms and larger shoes. After food, you will hear excitement and gratitude in the voice of every child who understands that getting an education is a privilege. Even the youngest of our orphans realize that an education means they have a bright future ahead of them. They can dream of being a pastor, a nurse, a doctor or an engineer.
Every orphan who has ever completed their education with Hopegivers is employed!
Your gift gives each child not just hope for a future; it gives them a future!
$35: Covers the cost to feed an orphan for a month – 3 meals a day. When a child first comes to us, most are seriously malnourished. With clean water and healthy food three times a day, one would hardly recognize them as the same child after only a short time in a Hope Home.
Like everywhere else in the world, food prices in India continue to go up. At one time we could feed a child for under $30 a month. That is no longer possible. When an orphan has been with us for a few months and is asked what they like most about their new life, you will hear “food!”
