What We do

The Sierra Leone Project was established to meet the needs of children in Sierra Leone.  Many of the children in this project have seen their parents killed in the civil war, they are orphans or their parents are too poor to care for them.  Sierra Leone is a country stricken by poverty with very little industry.  You may have heard about this country in the recent years as one that was affected by Ebola.  This project rescues children from living on the streets and gives them hope.  Pastor Francis, his wife Agnes, and other staff give these children a loving home with God as the center.  They know everything they are given comes from their Heavenly Father. 

Because of the generous donations of supporters, the children receive:

  • Two meals a day of nutritional food
  • Clothing/shoes/material needs

  • Education

  • Clean water

  • Medical care

  • A loving home and a bed to sleep in

  • Staff to take care of the children and the grounds

  • Peace of mind

This project is made possible by New Hope Initiative.  New Hope Initiative is a faith-based, non-profit organization that has a compelling desire to bring real positive change to some of the poorest communities in the world. We do that by a multi-faceted approach of nutritional, educational, economic, and spiritual assistance. We partner with respected local leaders in some of the world’s most difficult neighborhoods to offer self-sustaining projects of hope that will change a community forever. We accomplish this by leveraging the gifts, talents, and passions of people, like you, all over the world who want to help us make this world a better place. New Hope Initiative is a registered 501(c)3 organization.  For more information visit:

Mission Trips

Trips to foreign countries can be life changing.  You can be the hands and feet of Jesus and serve others, but what is always surprising is how much they fill us up and how much we learn from them.  We have multiple trips throughout the year and we would love for you to join us.  Just send us an email and we will give you more information.
