A Voice for Forgotten Children

International Programs

Agriculture Point Hope’s agricultural program has been in place since 2004. Point Hope teaches and practices organic, sustainable gardening. The agriculture program provides  skills training in vegetable farming, livestock and poultry. Parents or care givers of malnourished children are encouraged to participate in the farming projects and are trained regarding vegetables, fruit, poultry and egg production. In this way Point Hope is not just feeding a hungry child, we are empowering the family to care for the child as they grow.

Nutrition When Point Hope first started working in the refugee camp, almost half of the children living in the region suffered from malnutrition. Adam Sandow, along with the entire Point Hope team, has spent over 10 years working daily to improve the lives of those who are hungry.  Adam's education in public health and nutrition combined with his incredible heart for those who are suffering has changed and saved lives of thousands. To date, we have not lost a SINGLE CHILD ENROLLED IN OUR PROGRAM TO MAL-NOURISHMENT.

Living Water Point Hope’s biggest challenge and our biggest success to date has been getting fresh water into Buduburam! It took four years and quite a bit of money. Finally, in May of 2008, clean and fresh water started flowing into the camp! At first there were just three “fetching stations”, but now there are 19! (A “fetching station” is comprised of double-sided spigots, much like we would see outside in our gardens in America.) Imagine, 38 spigots for 124 acres and 24,000 people!  Such a vast improvement over what was (or was not) there for the previous 18 years.

Education Education opens doors to a better, most fulfilled life for every child, their families, their communities and the world.  Point Hope encourages every child to attend school, to learn and study and use their gifts and talents to make the world we live in a better place.
