African Vision of Hope started because one person in a small town in Illinois heard that kids in Africa needed help and she wanted to do something. Since then over 1000 orphans in Zambia and their families have been given schools, clothes, and food. The schools and orphanages are run at a local level be a Zambian man of character and integrity. The money given to African Vision of Hope helps kids in such practical ways. I recently became a child sponsor, and I am so glad that I did. My parents have made a few trips to Zambia to visit their sponsored children and see the work being done. I highly highly recommend this non-profit.
