Hope for the Nations (HFTN) Children’s Charity is a non profit organisation based in the United Kingdom and founded in 2002.
Over the course of time HFTN has broadened its scope and sharpened its focus. HFTN is now engaged in community development, poverty reduction and gender equity issues in areas that affect children.
Through a system of coalition and partnerships, we have established projects in Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Swaziland, Sri Lanka and India. As we have developed, we have been able to generate financial support for existing HFTN international projects in Romania, Thailand and occasionally Nepal. HFTN is continuing to develop its relationships and international networks in order to increase the efficiency of efforts directed to helping children at risk around the world.
Our Corporate Values
Faith-based Principles & Local Community
Hope for the Nations is a faith-based Christian development organisation that is dedicated to working with, and on behalf of, the world’s most marginalized and vulnerable population – orphans and vulnerable children. Motivated by our faith in God’s love for these children and His ability to transform lives, we are committed to standards of excellence in care and believe that children grow and develop best in a loving environment within a community setting.
Coalition & Partnership
Hope for the Nations believes that coalition and partnership with local organisations is essential to sustainable development and local ownership of projects.
Volunteering & Accountability
Volunteering and accountability are central to all of Hope for the Nation’s work. Accordingly, all directors, staff and volunteers are accountable to the Hope for the Nations Board of Directors. All financial transactions are open to the scrutiny of the Canadian, US and UK governments, the Board of Directors, and any who ask.
Hope for the Nations serves children from all backgrounds regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
Hope for the Nations makes a difference by starting the process of change.
More than a rescue operation, Hope for the Nations (HFTN) works in partnership with local and international organizations towards the long-term goal of seeing ‘Children at Risk’ transformed into ‘Tomorrow’s Leaders’ through the provision of loving care, healthcare and education, and through building healthy communities and self-sufficiency. HFTN does this by focusing on improving the human security and capacity of the children and communities that it works for, all in a sustainable way.
Hope for the Nations believes that the only way to address the monumental challenges facing ‘Children at Risk’ is through coalition and partnerships. Accordingly, HFTN strategically aligns itself with nationals who share HFTN’s vision and values, but who may not have the means to carry it out. Hope for the Nations’ “coalitions” always include:
- Leadership who oversee, guide and direct projects
- Organizations that facilitate the operation of the Children’s Homes
- Entrepreneurs who fuel projects through expertise, labour or finances
- National Participation by leaders who share our vision and commitment
