6. How much of my donation will actually go toward the orphans?

7. Will Build Hope build and run these orphanages?
While one of Build Hope’s missions is certainly to build orphanages, we seek to connect the resources of the churches in the United States with the local churches near our orphanages to empower them to take care of these orphanages themselves. We will do our utmost best to ensure that these orphans are properly cared for by striving for financial responsibility, integrity and accountability.
8. How is Build Hope different from larger organizations like World Vision and Compassion?
Build Hope focuses on providing all the basic needs for children without parents and without shelter. We strongly support World Vision and Compassion, but the core difference is nearly all their sponsored children have families and a home. It is more like weekly after-school program they attend for a few hours. However the orphans at Build Hope are abandoned with no home, and rely solely on supporters to provide for their food, shelter, clothing and medical expenses.
