IN EVERY OTHER PART OF THE WORLD THE NUMBER OF ORPHANS IS DECREASING, IN AFRICA THE NUMBERS ARE INCREASING AT AN ALARMING RATE.
There are at least 147 MILLION ORPHANS worldwide.
Over 30 percent of the children who die in the world are African, even though they make up only 10% of the world’s children.
The numbers are staggering! Most of these children have been orphaned due to the AIDS pandemic, which generates more orphans than any other disease the world has ever known.
These orphans must not only be fed and provided with health-care; they must also be educated and trained so that they are able to grow and become self-sufficient. This will save the children and benefit their communities and the world.
World Voice of Hope is passionate about this work and we welcome your partnership.
OUR CORPORATE PARTNERS
WE CONSULT WITH ENTREPRENEURS AND RENOWNED INNOVATORS TO TACKLE THE PROBLEMS OF POVERTY AND TO CREATE SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS THAT ENABLE THE POOR TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES.
The markets alone cannot solve the problems of poverty; nor are charity and aid enough to tackle the challenges faced by over two-thirds of the world’s population living in poverty. Patient capital is a third way that seeks to bridge the gap between the efficiency and scale of market-based approaches and the social impact of pure philanthropy.
World Voice of Hope Foundation partners with donors to create sustainable solutions such as drilling boreholes for needy and remote communities to provide clean water to orphanages and communities in the most vulnerable areas around the world. In addition, we work to alleviate malnutrition and hunger in one of the world’s lowest socioeconomic sectors- orphaned children. We believe that when children have the nutrients they need to survive and thrive, waves of human potential will be unleashed.

OUR WORK IS CREATING CHANGE AROUND THE GLOBE AND IN THE LIVES OF THE WORLD'S POOR
DRILLING FOR LIFE
One child dies from a water-related disease every 21 seconds. Even though there has been a decrease of deaths in recent years, “I find the fact that more than 750,000 children still die every year around the world because of severe dehydration due to diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and improper hygiene unacceptable.” (Statistic from water.org)
This is the reason that World Voice of Hope is focused on providing clean water through bore holes and water tanks, for orphanages and communities in the most vulnerable areas around the world.
FARMING FOR ORPHANS
6.3 million children under age five died in 2013, nearly 17,000 every day. The risk of a child dying before completing five years of age is highest in Africa (90 per 1000 live births), about 7 times higher than in Europe (12 per 1000 live births). Approximately 3.1 million children die from hunger each year. (worldhunger.org)
This is why World Voice of Hope is so passionate about partnering with communities to address immediate food needs for the many endless orphans around the world, and to also grow sustainable food for the future.
Increasing access to education and retention at school is instrumental not only in the health and well being of the individual, but also in their future children and families. Being orphaned or made vulnerable can play a very active role in whether a child goes to school.
Many orphans around the world, are not educated, often due to the fact that they speak their tribal mother tongue, but not the accepted language of the region. These children are at greater risk for exploitation, early marriage, and lower income-earning potential. This is why World Voice of Hope provides educational materials to orphanages, to ensure the orphans we serve are educated, and can survive and thrive.
