Our Mission

The South American country of Bolivia is home to more than 13,000 orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children who live without hope every day.  Of these 13,000 boys and girls, an estimated 5,000 live within the city of Cochabamba. While a small number of adoptions do occur each year, the vast majority of these children grow up either on the streets or in orphanages and institutions, completely unaware of what it is to be loved or told they are a precious creation of God.  While the future may currently be bleak for some, Fundación Esperanza (Hope Foundation), a ministry of Lifesong for Orphans, is committed to changing the trajectory of orphaned and vulnerable children in Bolivia.

Our hope is to reunite children with biological family members, work with the Bolivian government to have the children placed in adoption or provide long term care when reunion or adoption are not possible.
