Join us

Please join the For the Love of Our Kids Campaign. Help us find 14 sponsors by February 14th to support AHOPE for Children. Childhood should be a carefree time, filled with laughter, learning and family. For one million Ethiopian children, this is not a reality. AIDS had decimated their lives – orphaning them and leaving many of them HIV positive.
Imagine... a whole generation without family, health, or hope. It’s unfathomable. Amid the desperation is AHOPE for Children, a highly effective nonprofit that runs two amazing homes for HIV-affected Ethiopian children as well as a Child Development Center serving over 300 children. AHOPE protects and respects the Ethiopian culture while caring for and finding adoptive homes for these homeless children.
For just $35 a month, you can make a profound impact on those who need us the most. Do it for the love of our children. To sign up for our sponsorship program please visit our website.

May 2011 bring you peace and hope!

Tuesday, November 30, 2010


Dec. 1, 2010 This day marks a day when all over the world people are increasing their efforts to change how HIV/AIDS impacts our world. They are educating, singing, pleading, discussing - they are making a difference. Hopefully a difference that will carry all the way until WORLD AIDS DAY 2011. I hope this post will encourage you to step out and more importantly step up so that a child living, fighting in Ethiopia will also live to see next year's WORLD AIDS DAY.

I believe in change and that one person can make a difference. I'm an AHOPE volunteer and I believe that even if I just make a change for one child it will be worth it. I've met the children of AHOPE Ethiopia. They have dreams and hopes and the strength to do some amazing things with their lives and they deserve the chance to live those dreams. So be a part of making a difference. Consider sponsorship, get creative on fundraising, educate yourself on HIV and AIDS, find an event in your community...

Find a way to make a difference.

AHOPE Targets 25 New Sponsors for November

AHOPE for Children needs 25 new sponsors for the month of November. Greater demands from Ethiopia and the need for a Youth Development Program in 2011 means we need your help. Your sponsorship dollars are critical to our success. Sponsorship has always proven to be the backbone of how AHOPE funds many of its lifesaving services.

Please help us meet our goal of 25 new sponsorships this month. AHOPE has always been blessed with remarkably responsive supporters. As a team, we are confident that we can once again react to the needs of the kids.

A Way to Give

Macy’s and AHOPE for Children are teaming up again this year!

Since 2006, Macy's Shop for a Cause event has partnered with non-profit organizations nationwide to raise more than $34 million for their ongoing charitable efforts. This is your chance to participate in this monumental event on Saturday, October 16, 2010.
Shop for a Cause gives you the opportunity to help AHOPE by purchasing a $5 savings pass for exclusive savings and offers in every Macy's store and a chance to win a $500 gift card, exclusive to each store. As a participating charity, AHOPE for Children keeps 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each savings pass.....but we need your help!

Please support AHOPE and help HIV+ orphans in Ethiopia!

Whether you purchase one savings pass or you purchase 20, 40, 50 etc. you are helping our fundraising efforts immensely. If you choose to purchase several, we are asking that you pay for the savings passes at $5 each and then reimburse yourself as they sell. If you do not sell them all, we are happy to give you back the money owed, so please keep track. Once your money is received, we will send you coupon booklets immediately.
