The Management Team
Hope 4 Our Children’s Management Team is comprised of a dedicated group of professionals who are committed to providing solutions to help economically disadvantaged children with opportunities for a better life.
Background and History
Every child is entitled to an education. However, education might not be easily accessible for economically disadvantaged children who lost at least one parent. Education promises a better life for children, yet many obstacles stand in the way, especially in areas hit by natural disasters, such as in Aceh after the tsunami, where the tsunami destroyed thousands of schools and killed thousands of teachers, and in West Sumatra, after the earthquakes killed thousands of parents and children. Hope 4 Our Children was founded in early 2005 after the Tsunami earthquake took more than 230,000 lives in Aceh, Indonesia; 50,000 of which were children. Hope 4 Our Children, a non-profit organization based in Washington D.C. Metro Area, initiated projects to help disadvantaged children in Aceh, Indonesia, where tsunami orphaned thousands of children, ruined thousands of schools, killed thousands of teachers and destroyed the livelihood of thousands of people in the area. Our objective is to help provide economically disadvantaged children with four basic needs: food, shelter, health and education.
Hope 4 Our Children helps to relieve the distress and hardship brought on by natural disaster and the resulting loss of guardians and family. Our objective is to promote the welfare of children in any country or countries, place or places without differentiation on the ground of race, color, nationality, creed or sex; to help the poorest children escape from the cycle of poverty and bring them a brighter future through education and training.
Our Current Programs
