Who We Are
Hope for Children is a child-focused charitable organization committed to working towards the care, protection and upliftment of children living in severe poverty. Hope for Children projects in rural and urban poverty pockets focus on the educational, physical, emotional, social and moral development of children through community-based child wellbeing initiatives. We work in partnership with civil society organizations, donors, and governments to create lasting change in the lives of underprivileged children, their families and communities.
Our approach is modeled around bringing change at all levels. We work alongside the marginalized to empower families and communities to lead a dignified life, capable of protecting, caring and educating children to pursue a career of their own choice. We help break the cycle of intergenerational poverty by following an innovative model of community development approach in underprivileged rural villages and urban slums.WHAT WE DO VIEW OUR ACTIVITIES

About the Metropolitan
Moran Mor Athanasius Yohan I Metropolitan
Moran Mor Athanasius Yohan I, the Metropolitan of Believers Eastern Church (formerly Dr K.P. Yohannan Metropolitan), was born and brought up in Niranam, Kerala. Niranam has immense historical significance in the tradition of Saint Thomas, a disciple of Jesus Christ who planted the first church there in AD 52.
Moran Mor Athanasius Yohan I Metropolitan dedicated his life to God at a young age to serve the needy and downtrodden. He prayed, “Oh my Lord, let my heart break with the things that break Your heart” and his life was never the same. It’s his belief that one can only demonstrate God’s love by loving people.
