Who We Are

Children of Hope is a volunteer organization governed by a Board of Directors which is comprised of community leaders, entrepreneurs, and young professionals

Board members are committed to delivering Children of Hope’s mandate and continuing to grow its ability to “make a difference” through advocacy and raising funds for orphans and destitute children.

The Board’s responsibilities include accountability, administering and approving funds, managing projects, and providing guidance on proposed initiatives. Our committed volunteer base comprises of individuals with various skills and expertise, which are leveraged to steer our key initiatives. Many of our volunteers are parents with young families, from various backgrounds and cultures, who feel compelled to help those children in the world who are vulnerable and in dire need of our help.

Children of Hope is federally registered with the Government of Canada and Canada Revenue Agency (Registered Charity No: 84038 4879 RR0001) and functions under the Canada corporations Act. The organization maintains a strict policy of accountability and transparency in all its transactions.

Objectives

We hope to fulfill three key objectives with Children of Hope:
  • To raise funds to meet the basic needs of orphans and destitute children to ease their suffering irrespective of race, religion or creed.
  • To educate Canadians about the needs of orphaned and destitute children around the world.
  • To support local and international charities whose goal is to help orphaned and destitute children within Canada and around the world.

Our Mission

In the Canadian spirit of helping the less fortunate, we have responded to overwhelming needs of orphaned and destitute children by establishing a federally registered organization called the Children of Hope.

We are independent, but we work alongside other agencies that share our goal: the desire to service the neediest of humanity. We recognize and respect all faiths and are motivated by the Islamic principle that helping an orphan and destitute child is among the most compelling of moral duties. We believe in easing the suffering of all orphaned and destitute children irrespective of race, religion or creed.
