We had a very colourful and fun party at the school on December 18 – along with our 610 kids and a parent/guardian and sibling each, there were local community leaders etc, and the total number of people fed exceeded 1,400!

In a slum where there is no social service or welfare system, Child of Hope’s welfare team does some amazing, ground-breaking work, and is a vital part of how we help slum children and their families.

Today is the start of our Christmas Party Appeal 2015! Last year was a great success with kids and guests from the community having a fantastic time. This year we want to do the same, so today we’re launching our advent joke appeal; each day we’ll be posting a corny Christmas cracker style joke or cartoon and we want you to share the post with your friends and loved ones — while at the same time clicking on the donate button! It costs just £4 to provide each Child of Hope child with a present, party food AND a new pair of shoes!

We have teamed up with Just Cards Direct again this year to provide 10% donations on sales of its handmade Christmas cards and gifts from Africa. So if you'd like a source of great cards that also help our work with slum kids... give them a look!

Meet Pius, he’s a very busy guy. During the day he heads up our welfare team and in his spare time he is caretaker of the boys section of our expanding children’s home, currently with 19 lads.

Moses is the head boy at our school and is in the last year of the school (P7) – but before he started at the school he seriously doubted if he would survive a serious infestation of jiggers.

Since Rose approached Child of Hope’s Income Generating Activity team in 2013 for a business grant and training – to set up a small business selling vegetables – she and her husband have been able to purchase a small plot of land where they will build a home one day.
