What We Do

The Christ's Hope Model

Every day thousands of people in sub-Saharan Africa die because of AIDS. Children affected by AIDS are often stigmatized and marginalized by society and their communities, abandoned and left to live on the streets or in underfunded orphanages severed from their extended family and their community.

We care for the AIDS-affected child because of Jesus’ command to care for the orphan and the powerful influence that a child’s faith can have on a whole community.

To accomplish this, we have devised a system that focuses on three core principles. First, our 27 Ministry CarePoints are the locations where our work takes place. The Ministry CarePoints are where over 1,200 children go to receive the support required to help them break the cycle of AIDS and poverty in their lives. Second, our Care and Compassion program helps us prevent more children from becoming orphans by caring for people who are already suffering from AIDS. Third, our Genesis Design program assists children to see that they are made in God’s image and have inherent dignity and value as human beings.

Ministry CarePoints

Ministry CarePoints are strategically located centers that provide children with the educational, physical, spiritual and emotional support they need to grow and the ability to live with an extended family member or a foster family rather than being institutionalized or abandoned. LEARN MORE>>

Care and Compassion

In many instances, those who have AIDS suffer from access to humane care. Stigma, lack of knowledge, and fear of the disease; prevent them from being accepted by society. Our Care and Compassion staff work tirelessly to return the dignity of those who have been left to die because of their disease. It is in these moments that sharing the hope of Christ with a dying patient, or while helping them administer their medicine that the gospel can penetrate their life. LEARN MORE>>


"Genesis Design will take you back, right to the beginning, to hear the voice of truth...the voice of God the Almighty Creator. Genesis tells us, in the first three chapters of the Bible, exactly how God created us. In turn, Genesis Design teaches us how to create a happy home that everybody longs for."
- Sylvia Holtzhausen, Genesis Design founder and creator

Genesis Design

Each day we are teaching our children at the Ministry CarePoints that they are made in the image of their creator and because of that single truth, they have value. Genesis Design teaches biblical manhood, womanhood, sexuality, and marriage. As a result, boys and girls grow up knowing that their heavenly Father loves them, and that has a direct impact on their lives. LEARN MORE>>
