|New Hope In Africa
is a newly-formed, Christian-based nonprofit organization. Mike and Melody Vanderhoff formed this organization to initially work in Mozambique and will branch out to other countries in Africa when the opportunity arises. The organization's goals are to provide safe, clean drinking water to the people of Mozambique, by drilling wells or rehabbing existing wells.
The initial plan is to first provide the water, then plant a church and a school. New Hope In Africa has a non-government organization partner in Mozambique, New Hope Association. This organization was formed by Dr. Zefanias Chihulume, a native of Mozambique. Zef was educated in the United States and could find no higher calling than to serve people in need in his home country. Zef serves on the board of directors of New Hope In Africa.
