I have been associated with African Vision of Hope since it's founding. The organization has truely change lives in Zambia one child at a time. We are seeing the fruits of the vision that started 12 years ago. There are now 5 schools with 1700 children and will soon have over 100 children that have graduated the 12th grade. We track their success in the real world and many now have good paying jobs and a large percentage are going into higher education through scholarships provided by African Vision of Hope. The thought of a young boy or girl that had no hope of ever attending school ,now being a productive part of society will change the country.

The amazing transformation of children is the most fruitful life changing attribute that a person will see in the African Vision of Hope schools . In 2003 ,on a dirt floor in a rented beat up building ,with 43 children that were in rags and hungry, a dream and a burden for the children was set into place. Seeing them prosper throught the 10 years that have followed encourages all of us to continue to surrender to the path that God has laid before us . Serving "the least of these" will be a life changing act of service.These children have the ability to change your heart and to brake your heart . Make the choice of sponsoring a child today.

I have served on the Board and worked as a volunteer for African Vision of Hope for over five years. I have seen first hand having gone on a mission trip to Zambia three out of the last four years what difference they are making in that country helping widows and orphans. They are making a difference by giving over 1000 orphans a free education, two meals a day, medical care and a chance to be a productive member in their society. One of the principals said a few years ago that they are giving hope to the hopeless. What is so impressive is the fact that only around 5% of their budget is spent on Administrative funds in the US. So you are assured that the money taken in goes directly to help these children and orphans. AVOH has certainly blessed my life. We have a CEO and Director of Operations who work tirelessly both here in the US and Zambia to see that we are making a difference in that country.
