Founded in 2012, House of Hope Orphanage is a beacon of love, care, and hope for over 176 children who have been orphaned or abandoned in the North West Region of Cameroon.

The orphanage began with just 7 children and has since grown due to the increasing need for support, particularly in light of the ongoing "Ambazonia" crisis that has left thousands of parents dead and even more women and children displaced.

The purpose of House of Hope Orphanage is to provide “A Place To Call Home” for orphaned or abandoned children in Cameroon.

Challenges: Overcoming Obstacles to Make a Home

House of Hope Orphanage faces various challenges in its quest to create “A Place To Call Home” for the children:
Limited resources: As the number of children in need continues to grow, so does the demand for resources.
Ongoing crisis: The “Ambazonia” crisis has led to the displacement of thousands of families, increasing the number of children seeking refuge at the orphanage.
Founder’s health: Malvis Ayaba, the founder of House of Hope Orphanage, has been battling kidney failure since 2019. Her health has recently deteriorated, adding to the challenges faced by the orphanage.
