Our vision is to empower orphaned children through sustainable solutions, shifting the mindset from dependency towards a self sufficient, more hopeful future. 


Your future isn't really hopeful if you're entirely dependent on donations from strangers. One of our goals is to enable the child headed families programme and the vocational school to become financially sustainable in the long term.

Vocational School

Edith’s Hope built and manages a residential vocational school for orphaned children to learn skills that will empower them to earn a wage in order to support themselves and their families.

Child Headed Families project

Child headed families are where one or both parents have died, often from HIV or other impacts of extreme poverty, leaving the eldest child with responsibility for all of their siblings.
