Frequently Asked Questions
All ages are welcome! If they are under the age of 16, we ask that there be an adult present to supervise.

How is Giving Children Hope different from other international relief and development organizations?
One of our core values is listening. As a listening organization, we work with partners in developing countries and listen to their needs instead of imposing our own ideas or strategies on the community. It is the community that decides what they need and which projects are prioritized. Instead of being community based, we are community initiated. A project has the greatest chance for success when the community has true ownership and input into the development.
