Every child is entitled to an education. However, it is not as easily accessible for economically disadvantaged children who’ve lost a parent. Education promises a better life for children, yet many obstacles stand in the way especially in areas affected by natural disasters. These cities include Aceh after the tsunami, where it destroyed thousands of schools and took the lives of thousands of teachers, and in West Sumatra, after the earthquakes took the lives of thousands of parents and children.
Hope 4 Our Children is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Washington DC Metro area, United States, focusing on helping economically disadvantaged children with their 4 (four) basic needs, which are food, shelter, health, and education. We were founded in early 2005 after the Tsunami earthquake took more than 230,000 lives in Aceh, Indonesia; 50,000 of which were children. Our first projects consisted of serving disadvantaged children in Aceh, Indonesia, where the tsunami ruined thousands of schools and homes, took the lives of thousands including parents of children, and destroyed the livelihood of thousands in the area.
