Giving Childhood Back to Children

The HIC Youth Care Facility is a registered Non-Profit organization, operating a child and youth care center with the goal of providing holistic and respectful home care to a small group of residents.

Our aim is to provide a warm, comfortable, safe and loving home for all our children, with the interaction of other organizations involved in the individual children’s needs.

Securing a brighter future for our children


Our vision is to break the cycle of abuse, neglect, HIV, and abandonment in the lives of children, through empowering these children with strong family values, structure and love and support. The result being that when a child from HIC (Hope in Christ) grows up and gets married and has children of his/her own, they will impart these same family structures and values and thereby bring down the statistics of abuse, neglect, HIV, and abandonment for future generations to come.


The Hope In Christ mission aims to promote the dignity and self-worth of all residents and we strive to give them an excellent quality of life as defined by the residents individually and as a group. To that end we aim to provide a Christian, safe, secure and loving environment to the residents, where they will be provided with adequate support, The Hope in Christ Mission is not just a care giving facility –  it is their home and community.
