Hope 4others

We believe God calls us to care for the orphan and the vulnerable. So we choose to come alongside children living in poverty and equip them with the resources and relationships they need to survive and thrive. Poverty is complex, but we believe it is also conquerable... one life at a time. Take a look below to see how you can help a child conquer poverty and reach their full potential in Christ!

Love a child. Empower a family. Transform a community.

Spring of Hope CarePoint

We've partnered with Ethiopian NGO Stand for Vulnerable Organization to open a child development program in rural Ambo, Ethiopia. The Spring of Hope CarePoint currently serves 131 orphaned and vulnerable children. Spring of Hope connects each child to a caring person who will give $38/month, write letters, and pray for their sponsored child.


What your sponsorship provides: 

  • Education: enrollment in the local public school, regular private tutoring, learning materials, school uniform and school supplies
  • Shoes and clothing
  • Supplemental food for the child's family
  • Medical care
  • Christian discipleship and mentoring
  • A loving, encouraging friendship

What makes Spring of Hope unique? Find out below!

Spring of Hope: 

Family Empowerment Program

Spring of Hope focuses on a child's holistic development, which includes family empowerment. The parents and guardians of the children at Spring of Hope are organized into 10 self-help groups (SHGs). In these groups, they receive training in entrepreneurial skills to build a sustainable income and gradually move their families toward self-reliance.


Sponsor a Child - When you sponsor a child at Spring of Hope, you also empower his/her parent in their Self-Help Group!

Donate - Provide a grant to the Self-Help Groups to support their new collective Grinding Mill business!

Spring of Hope: Child Correspondence

Writing letters is the greatest way to offer that special friendship a child longs for! We hope you take the time to regularly send encouragement to your sponsored child. Your words encourage, inspire, and remind them of God's great love for them! 

Send an online letter (1 week delivery)

Mail a letter (6-8 weeks delivery)

Next Write Night: Early spring 2019

Location: Church of God of San Jose (Map)

We know our letters are important to the children, but we also know it's hard to send letters consistently. That's why we host two Write Nights each year, intentionally setting aside time as a community to encourage our kids! This way, every child receives at least two letters every year. We provide refreshments and all the writing materials. Our Write Nights are also a fun way to connect with other sponsors. We hope you can join us!

Spring of Hope: Mission Trips

We believe sponsors need the opportunity to see and experience the impact of their support! Nothing strengthens your relationship with your sponsored child better than spending a week in their shoes, visiting their home, and getting to know their family and culture.

Once a year, we host trips to the Spring of Hope community. The trip is usually 10 days in length, including travel, and the cost (including airline tickets, accommodations, food, in-country travel, and support staff) totals around $2,800 per traveler. 

2019 Trip Dates: to be determined

Spring of Hope: Community Development Projects

Sponsors also have the opportunity to support development projects that will transform their child’s community! Spring of Hope has a long-term development plan that includes projects such as the provision of water points for the community, building libraries, and installing public toilet facilities. 

Current development project: 

Gosu WASH Project

This project will bring access to safe sanitation for the Spring of Hope community. It will include the construction of two gender-specific VIP (ventilated improved pit) latrine blocks at the church compound where the Spring of Hope children and guardians gather. Read More
