Home-Base: Creating a Hope and Future for Orphaned and Vulnerable Youth

VISION
• To create a home-base for orphaned and vulnerable youth, equipping them as they embark on their studies and begin the next season of their lives.
• To provide as many scholars as possible with career guidance and information so that they can make wise choices.

FOCUS
We at Home-Base are all about helping young people, specifically those who have been orphaned or come from vulnerable backgrounds, become all that they can be. Our focus is on:
• Providing these young people with career guidance, to help them make wise choices;
• Working with educational institutions and child-care organizations to connect each young person with the best study options for them;
• Providing a home for these young people while they are studying; a safe place where they can grow into their full potential.
