Over 26 million children worldwide live without parents.
Additionally, there is growing research that traditional, institutional style orphanages are failing those they desire to help. When children do not receive adequate personal interaction within a loving environment, development is stunted and learning abilities are delayed or lost. Kids are aging out of these traditional-style orphanages behind in almost every stage of human development.
The Hope Effect is remedying this situation around the world by focusing on and implementing orphan care strategies that mimic the family unit.
