We have seen how sponsorship changes lives as it empowers vulnerable children who otherwise face a dark future with no opportunity to break this cycle on their own.
For the many children HOHI has rescued from the sex trafficking industry, and for children living in extreme poverty with little hope of a better future, HOHI provides loving care and a range of services for abandoned or at-risk children and orphans. These services include:
This comprehensive care and training can break the cycle for these children by keeping them from begging or being used in child labour, and protects them from being pulled into the child trafficking industry. We are grateful for each of our sponsors, who in the midst of a pandemic, assist these children to see a hopeful future. On behalf of each child we warmly thank you for your sponsorship.

Standards of Care
Our standards of care are encapsulated in the HOHI Twelve Essentials. We require our partnered projects to implement high standards of child safety and protection at all times. Where possible we seek to reunite children with family whenever it is safe to do so.
HOHI’s projects in India are aimed at the rescue and recovery of sex trafficking victims, and prevention of children at risk being pulled into this industry. These children must be given comprehensive care from the years of trauma and abuse they have faced, both physically and psychologically, and require a lot of love in order to rebuild their future into one of hope and opportunity.
HOHI has supported children’s projects in Miraj for over 14 years including a girls’ home, senior girls’ home, and boys’ home for children who have have been exposed or at risk of exposure to the sex trafficking industry. HOHI has also developed a Night Creche for the children of sex workers in Miraj who would otherwise witness the trauma of their mothers work each night. This is a crucial step in breaking the cycle that they would likely be pulled into themselves. At any given time over 40 children are receiving care.
HOHI’s Pune project cares for 10 girls whose lives are also being healed from years of trauma, abuse and hopelessness as a result of their exposure to the sex trafficking industry. They now have the opportunity to break the cycle and build their own future that is successful, hopeful and free.
The Dhaka project also helps rescue young girls from the sex trafficking industry and provides a safe house, physical and psychological healing and recovery in order to slowly build a better future that is full of hope, success and freedom.
HOHI supports 2 transitional homes for orphans in Indonesia. These homes are for genuine orphans, or children who have been abused or severely neglected.
The Jakarta orphan home commenced in 2004. It has been a small home for many years but recently thanks to a generous donation from our project partner a new facility has been built.
HOHI first became involved in Medan following the tsunami crisis of 2004. After providing thousands of relief packages a refuge was established in Medan for tsunami widows and orphans. The home was then later developed into a transitional home for children at risk. HOHI has built a large complex in Medan and we are looking forward to expanding our care for children following COVID-19.
Maputo is the capital of one of the poorest nations in the world with chronic unemployment challenges. Many children have been orphaned or abandoned and many can be seen scavenging on garbage dumps throughout the day. HOHI cares for a group of 10 children, providing a safe place to live, loving care, protection, education and vocational training, enabling them to break the cycle of a life in extreme poverty and begin building a hopeful future.
