The Hope Effect is a dedicated team of passionate individuals motivated to find and implement new family-based solutions for orphan care around the world. UNICEF estimates there are 153 million orphans globally, 18 million of whom have lost both parents. A growing body of research is shining a light on the damaging effects of traditional, institutional orphan care. Children need adequate personal interaction in a loving environment to achieve their full development potential. The Hope Effect cares for orphans by providing solutions that mimic the family so that each child may flourish and thrive.
