In an increasingly competitive technological world, we seek to equip children from disadvantaged backgrounds with effective computer skills. HOHI funds the set up and ongoing support for many computer schools targeting primary school pupils, and these classes are held after school, 3 afternoons a week. Trained teachers take the children through a curriculum that ensures they have basic computer skill competencies that prepares them for High School.
HOHI is managed by a great team of volunteers and has only one part time paid office administrator. With low overheads of 10% for administration and 7% for compliance, HOHI ensures that 83% reaches the children and women in need. HOHI also provides the possibility of contact with your sponsor child through letter writing or a video connection. Some sponsors also join a team that visits the various projects.
There are always costs involved in managing not for profit organizations. HOHI employs an administrator who manages sponsorships and the HOHI office. There are costs involved in media, insurance, phones, communication with sponsors, etc. We are careful to ensure we are good stewards with every donated dollar.
For most projects, 90% of donated funds go directly to the needy. In rare cases, that percentage goes down to 83%. Our aim is to keep that number as high as possible.
Feel free to contact us directly if you have further inquiries on this matter.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Receipts are issued through Global Development Group.
The problem of world poverty is enormous and can often seem unconquerable. Looking at the overwhelming nature of world poverty can be discouraging. However, by approaching the problem one child at a time, lives can be saved. By sponsoring a child today, you are giving hope to one person, helping take away their suffering and offering them a better life. We change the world one person at a time.
Children will remain in a HOHI sponsorship programme until they turn 18, or are adopted, or until we find foster care for them, or until they graduate from college or with other qualifications and can be employed. We understand that sometimes the financial situation of a sponsor changes, and they are no longer able to continue sponsoring a HOHI child. If your financial situation as a sponsor changes, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible.
Your letters are most welcome. Please contact the HOHI office for more information if you would like to write a letter to your sponsor child.
The Australian government gives 0.4% of its budget to international aid. The UN recommended percentage of a country’s budget allocated to international aid is 0.7%. The Australian government falls short. Even if the Australian government could reach this standard, it would not be enough to eradicate poverty. We need your help to break the cycle of poverty.
