Learn About Samuel's House

Over 5000 children live on the streets of Caracas, Venezuela. Watch the short film below to learn about how you can help save a life, and help meet the needs at the Samuel's House orphanage.

Where we've been...

Hope of Venezuela started in 1999. Since then we have worked to build a self-sustaining orphanage called "Samuel's House that will be able to impact children for years to come with your investment. We believe it's important for our work to extend into education and empowerment for the local community to address the underlying issues which contribute to poverty and child homelessness. The orphanage has a farm which produces avocados, oranges, limons, cocoa, bananas, mangos, row crops along with raising horses, chickens, pigs and cows.

The country of 24 million people is full of natural resources and produces bauxite, iron ore, and mines gold and diamonds. It is a very diverse country with the Andes mountains to the west, over 2,000 miles of beautiful beaches to the north, and the interior of the country dedicated to farming and ranching. The complete bottom half of the country is the Amazon jungle. Venezuela's cocoa is known as some of the worlds best in quality. Cocoa is grown in the eastern part, then shipped to Belgium for processing, then returned for marketing and resale both in the country and internationally.

The capital city of Venezuela, Caracas, is filled with people. Over 6 million are sharing a space of land that is 2 miles wide by 10 miles long. Caracas is surrounded by a mountain that has homes built all the way to the top. These homes are in areas called "barrios" (below) which generally indicate the poor areas. The houses have no foundations or footings and whenever heavy rains come, many of the houses are washed down the hillside. This caused a national tragedy in 2000, when an estimated 100,000 people lost their lives to the mudslides and floods.
