Home of Hope
Home of Hope is a children's home in Mchinji, Malawi, providing shelter, food, medical care and love to over 500 children. Home of Hope also provides an education for over 600 children in Nursery through Secondary classes.
Home of Hope is a private children's home founded by Reverend Chipeta (Agogo - Chichewa for Grandparent) in 1992. Himself an orphan at 14, he founded Home of Hope after he and his wife took in grandchildren following the death of their parents. Since then he has sought to provide growing numbers of orphans and other vulnerable children with the opportunity to live an independent life to the full.
His daughter Lucy is now the Executive Director of Home of Hope and his grandson Shinghai is also involved with the day to day running of the home.
Home of Hope consists of 5 main sectors: the Village, the School, the Farm, the Clinic and the Vocational Centre. Together they enable the Home to best meet the needs of those they care for.
