KIDS HOPE: Kids Hope Australia is a program giving churches the opportunity to give hope to children in public primary schools by facilitating one-to-one relationships between children and caring church members. Hope in Kids Hope stands for;
H: Helping to meet the emotional, social and academic needs of at-risk children by giving them a one-to-one relationship with a mentor from our church.
O: Owned by our church. This is our ministry to children and families in our neighborhood.
P: Prayer is the foundation for our work. A behind-the-scenes prayer partner from our church prays for each mentor-child relationship.
E: Early primary school years are our focus.
These children need mentoring most because this is the critical time when values are formed, self-esteem is developed and critical academic skills must be acquired.
