By sponsoring one of the 197 children in our orphanages you can help us to feed, cloth, educate, provide health care and ensure a safe haven for these lovely children. They didn't choose to be where they are and deserve to be loved and taken care of. It gives us the opportunity to live Christ to them and help them to understand that in spite of their sad circumstances God loves them and want to take care of them.
Please concider a monthly donation of $30 that can help us to take care of one orphan.
We are very excited to welcome Marius to our team!

There are 48.5 million orphans in Africa. The majority of orphans originate from losing parents to Malaria, HIV, AIDS and poverty. Many of the children are born infected and as these children grow older and have children of their own, they will die, leaving their children orphaned just as they were.
Because of limited medical and educational influences in their lives, the cycle of disease continues to affect each generation.
Hands on Africa aims to help the people of Africa to help themselves. HOA train and employ local people to take care of the orphans and widows. At the Bible Seminaries pastors are trained to preach the Gospel effectively, to disciple those who come to Christ and to plant churches to accommodate these new believers. The Masters graduates are already involved in lecturing in the Bible Seminaries and they ate establishing satellite schools.
Hands on Africa dedicate all of their time and
resources to help the people of Africa break the cycle.
YOU can make a difference by joining us.
