The eager, smiling
faces of the future of Africa!
The purpose of Hope Centers
for Children of Africa is to come to the
aid of orphaned children in Africa.
Hope Centers for
Children of Africa (HCCA)
began with one mission in mind; come to the aid of
orphaned children. As the ministry grew, it became
apparent that widows who were caring for the orphans
needed assistance as well. Today six hundred children
live in “Host Family” homes. Most “Host
Families” are headed by widows. A micro loan
program was implemented to assist in establishing
means of income for the widows.
Baraka Academy is second to none in all of Bunia! In
a community of over 100,000 people, Baraka Academy is the
first school to have its own library.
Today six hundred orphaned/abandoned children have hope because
they are able to attend school! Add another four hundred
children and you find a bustling school setting at Baraka
Academy. Children of staff and others living in the area attend
Baraka Academy as well. We believe the additional four hundred
children assist the orphans in becoming a part of the community
as a whole.
The children come to Baraka Academy:
All children must pass government
tests in order to advance to the next grade.
- Speaking Swahili
- Begin learning French,
the official language of
DRC and are taught in French throughout their
time at Baraka Academy
- Begin learning English
in third grade
