OUR WORK

Hope for a Child in Christ (HOCIC) is a non-governmental organization (NGO), which was established in 1995 and registered as a Private Voluntary Organisation in 1999.

The organisation was formed in response to the call of the Zimbabwean government for a multi sectoral response towards HIV and AIDS. Many people were dying and living behind orphans. A number of interdenominational churches formed HOCIC to provide holistic psycho social support services to Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) and their families. However over the years the  organisation has revolved and is now implementing livelihoods, child protection and empowerment programs for vulnerable communities and marginalised groups with the main focus on women, youth, children and people with disabilities.
