 Life Skills Camp 2019

August 2019- Having participated in camp sponsorships for teen orphans in past years, we know the extreme value and necessity of Life Skill Camp.  Students are equipped with significant training in the areas of money management, online safety, sex education, etiquette and social skills, alcohol and drug use, and self-defense as they prepare to live in the world outside of the orphanage where they have spent their lives thus far.  Hope's Heart is honored to help sponsor Huan, Ning, Pei, Xia, Qiu, Long, Niu, Di, Shi, Ting and Zhi to attend this year's camp.






 The Value of Books and Toys

May 2019- Giving children the opportunity and resources to engage in play is vital to their cognitive, emotional and social development. Learning can be fun, and developmental toys and books contribute to their learning, enhance skills, develop motor skills, and give them a chance to interact and imagine.  It is a privlege to provide resources for these children.




 A Memorable Outing

March 2019-  Children from two orphanages and their caregivers had a special day learning about animals, playing, eating out, and enjoying the wonders of being in the community.  It also provided the community the chance to see these wonderful children and watch their amazement of all they experienced.




Many Faces of Education

March 2019- Education spans many avenues.  For children with visual challenges, learning may encompass feeding skills, recognizing body parts through touch, working with tactile learning equipment, sign language, walking with a cane, and many other facets that build skills and confidence.



Education Sponsorships Continue

January 2019-  Education sponsorships continue into the new year for eight children:  Luke, Hudson, Sawyer, Hugh, Janie, Jimmy, Carlos and Gabriel.  Education is critical; and we are thankful these children can move forward in securing a foundation for life.

New School Sponsorships and Some Changes

September 2017-  Four of the five boys we have been supporting for school attendance have moved to another school which does not require tuition support. We will continue to support Luke; and have also added four new student sponsorship:  Jane, Etan, Hudson and Sawyer.  Learning is an exciting time.  We are thankful to be supporting these special children.



Changes in Education Programs

January 2017-   Orphanage education programs that we have supported for many years have recently undergone a change.  The strong school model has benefitted so many of our sponsor children over the years.  With it's success, most of the programs [with the exception of one] have now been turned over to the orphanages themselves and the local government to continue to invest in the education of the children.

Beginning this month, we will continue to help support the one remaining program.  Currently sponsored in this program are Luke, Paul, Peter, Sean and Joseph.  These boys have been in the program for many years and will continue to grow and prosper from the attention given to their educational needs.
