Our Vision

Our vision is to break the cycle of abuse, neglect, HIV, and abandonment in the lives of children, through empowering these children with strong family values, structure and love and support. The result being that when a child from HIC (Hope in Christ) grows up and gets married and has children of his/her own, they will impart these same family structures and values and thereby bring down the statistics of abuse, neglect, HIV, and abandonment for future generations to come.
