The New Hope Clinic and Orphanage provides shelter, bible study programs, and health care for children living with HIV/Aids, most of whom have been orphaned or abandoned as a result of HIV/Aids.
March To The Top has provided substantial funding towards construction of the New Hope Orphanage and Clinic.
The facilities include a nursery and dormitory for up to 150 children, as well as housing for permanent and visiting volunteers and staff.
It also includes a full kitchen, library and clinic. The 10 acre property also contains rich soil for planting crops, including beans, maize and potatoes. Currently, mature mango, avocado and banana trees occupy the property. In addition, cows, goats, chickens and other livestock have been donated to the community so that it becomes more self sustaining.
A small clinic has just been completed on site with doctors who come and volunteer their time so that the children have immediate access to medical care.
The project, under leadership of AINA (the Italian Association of Nomades of Love), is inspired and lead by Vicky Quondamatteo, who has selflessly worked on many projects throughout Africa and the world,including St. Anne's Maternity Hospital in Igoji, Kenya. The goal of AINA is to defend children's rights in third world countries, in particular the right to education and self-suffciency.
Currently there are 85 children (as of January, 2012). March to the Top provides AINA monthly support to help with the cost of operating the orphanage and clinic.
