Purpose

For every child and family in Zambia to be released from extreme poverty and have the ability to fulfill the purpose God has for their lives.


Mission statement

African Vision of Hope is a Christian organization committed to bringing immediate and lasting solutions to children and families living in extreme poverty. We confront the root causes of poverty by providing opportunities to be educated, grow up healthy, develop leadership and economic skills and learn about God's love.


Statement of faith

We believe in the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God and divinely inspired.

One God exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His atoning death and resurrection.

Jesus Christ shed His blood for the salvation of the lost and sinful man.

Redemption comes only through believing in Jesus Christ as the One and Only Savior of the world.
