At Hearts That Hope we desire to create a loving environment in which vulnerable children can thrive, while recognising and encouraging their individual interests and talents.

“I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.” Martin Luther King Jr. We love hearing the dreams that our children hold in their hearts for their futures and we love walking
BROKEN AND BEAUTIFUL. For myself and Hearts that Hope I have a much bigger dream than just starting and running a children’s home. I long for people to see the love of Christ through me as we raise these children and I want them to start doing the same. So with this in mind I write

At Hearts that Hope the month of March meant… School holidays!!! It is one of the highlights of our year when the kids are on school holiday as we get to spend quality time with them. With the busy pace of life and the routine of school it is so nice to get the opportunity to slow down and
We are entering a new phase in Hearts That Hope this 2019 as two of our children (S’celo and Ollie) are in their final year of primary school and next year will be starting high school. Being an American living in South Africa this process is something that is completely foreign to me. In America
