Whether you are a donor, a volunteer, someone browsing our blog, or something else entirely – we are interested in hearing your feedback about Living Hope International.
We’ve compiled a survey here on our site which you can get to by clicking this sentence.
Your answers will help us to improve how we operate – however that’s not the only benefit!
A couple lucky people who complete the survey will be selected to receive a box of snacks from China! Some classic Chinese favorites, impossible to find elsewhere, will be sent right to your doorstep! If you’ve been missing White Rabbit (milk-flavored tootsie rolls) or salad Pretz (sort of like a savory Pocky), or if you’ve never tried any but are interested – this is your chance!
The survey will remain open through the beginning of August. Winners will be randomly selected and informed after the survey closes.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Ultimately the goal of Living Hope International is to have an impact on the children we help. Over the years many children have been cared for in Living Hope’s Children’s Home and Training Center, and as we approach the ten-year anniversary some of those children are reaching the age where they start to move forward with their lives.
For some, seeing a child move out of the home is bittersweet, as they have grown up under the care of Living Hope, building life-long relationships and forging a new path for their lives. However, in all families once a child becomes an adult they need to spread their wings and fly. This leap towards independence is often fraught with difficulties, but Living Hope seeks to provide every child with the appropriate job training and working support to ensure they succeed ‘out there’.
Today, the vast majority of the children we care for are still under the age of 18, and thus still in school and primarily living within our homes. But some of our older children have started to move forward, finding careers that they can get excited about. The care for these children from Living Hope continues, but as their lives become independent, financially and otherwise, these children represent the fulfilled work of Living Hope International. Our now-grown children are the impact we are having as an organization, and each of them as individuals bring a swell of pride to all of us here at Living Hope.
Some of these children have recently written letters to express their feelings about moving on. We’ve made a page here on our website where our first five ‘success stories’ have been posted, with more coming as older children gradually ‘leave the nest’.
For a very real picture of the impact Living Hope is having, and what our American sponsors can and have accomplished, please visit this new page, located under the ‘Sponsorship’ tab, and see what Ruth, Grace, Sherry, Annie and Noelle have shared.
Welcome to the new Living Hope International website and blog! We’re excited to start conversations – talking about our kids in China, bringing you news about China and global orphan care, and keeping you current about projects and needs. Take a look around and let us hear from you!
