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.
We’ve seen many children growing up with limitations because their childhoods were deprived. We want to raise children to become adults who uplift this country and make it a better place for the glory of God.

What a start to 2020! We have had huge schooling changes for most of our HTH children to start off the year. In our opinion some of the schools our kids were attending were not the best fit for them individually. After many discussions we decided to look for new schools and took our time
Christmas time is our favourite time of the year here at Hearts that Hope. It’s such a fun time of celebration and joy with year end parties and Christmas concerts. Our kids are easily swept up in the joy of the season and singing and dancing become second nature in our homes. The kids all
One of the hardest things to balance in running an orphanage and being a foster parent is learning how to deal with blood family. Naturally children want to know where they come from and why they don’t have their mom and dad or grandparents around like others in the schools and social settings they are a

Taking a moment… It’s been amazing to see how the children of Hearts That Hope have grown since they have joined our family. It always blows me away when I stop and think how each individual child is when they first come into our family to the present day; and how God has worked in their
“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
