About Sophia

Born: November 2, 2012

Sophia is a young girl from India, a country rich in culture and beauty but paralyzed by religious persecution and an unjust caste system. When rebels attacked Sophia’s village, her family lost everything including their ability to provide for her. Sophia suffers from a lung disease, but she doesn’t let that hold her back. Sophia is doing well in school and dreams of becoming a police officer when she grows up.

India is a country rich in culture and beauty but remains paralyzed by religious persecution, extreme poverty and an unjust caste system. With one-third of the world’s unreached people groups living in India it is easy to see how spiritual darkness and tradition perpetuates the suffering of the most vulnerable… orphans. India leads the world in orphaned children with an overwhelming 25.7 million orphans living without hope. Because of the caste system, a large majority of orphaned children are considered “untouchable” forcing them into child labor, crime and unspeakable human trafficking. Project Hope Worldwide seeks to provide light in the darkness and restore hope to vulnerable children through our excellent holistic care.
