In 2012 it was observed that the number of vulnerable children was at a higher increase due to the HIV/ AIDS problem and many had lost hope for the future, there was a need to restore back hope so we decided to extend the ministry to different communities through Hope for Joy community Outreach and Orphan sponsorship program.
