African Vision of Hope is a Christian organization committed to bringing immediate and lasting solutions to children and families living in extreme poverty. We confront the root causes of poverty by providing opportunities to be educated, grow up healthy, develop leadership and economic skills and learn about God’s love.

Every African Vision of Hope program is built on a Biblical perspective with an emphasis on building relationships and making disciples. All of our teachers are trained in Christian education, providing our students with a Biblical worldview.

Our History

Over 20 years ago, a ripple was started. From one rented room in a tavern to 6 schools across Zambia, since then, the years have brought incredible waves of change in the lives of thousands of Zambians. Generations have been impacted and poverty has been fought head-on.

In 2003, African Vision of Hope had 23 students, 1 classroom, and served 5,000 meals a year. Last year, all 6 schools totaled 3,250 students in attendance and served over 800,000 meals. This is all because of YOU.

Thank you for over 20 years of transforming lives. Here’s to many more!
