Family is important in Igbo Culture, and having many children is considered a blessing. While the average family with five children certainly has an advantage for working in area farm fields, the family often suffers economic deprivation that manifests itself in children’s stunted growth, poor physical and emotional health, and illiteracy.
OneHopeChildren provides orphans and poor children with quality health care and the basic education that will improve their lives.
We focus on helping these children attain at least basic education and skills that help them break the circle of poverty for life!
Education decreases the likelihood of these children getting involved with drugs, gangs, prostitution, and other criminal activities that can be lucrative.
OneHopeChildren has taken it as a goal to provide education for the poor children to the highest level.
Many children have received education assistance to grow and learn. Five of the beneficiaries have been admitted to study in the higher institutions, around which was least expected.
