Our main objective at Hope in Christ Children’s Home is to give each child a full quality of life.

As a volunteer, you can help us achieve our objective and make it possible to give each child the opportunity to have a fulfilled life, by offering us your time and talents. Volunteering won’t just make a great impact in the children’s lives here at Hope in Christ; you would also be richly rewarded, with the experience of enriching these children’s lives.
