As a philanthropist Everline is the founder of HOPE Africa Foundation, an organization that is working towards eradicating homelessness among street children in Kenya by providing the affected with clothing, food and psychological support in collaboration with a number of rehabilitation centres in Kenya. ”A society that has turned its attention away from street children is a society that is headed for destruction, with the rise of street children most of them being boys, we are busy building bridges to social and economic injustices for our future societies, we don’t have to beat them up or just send them away from one part of the city to another, we need to help these children, even if it means opening our doors for them to be part of our families, these children are angels and they need our help because at the end of the day it is ”we” the ”society” that has put them in this mess” – Everline Aboka
HOPE Africa Foundation’s main vision is to build a more spacious rescue centre that will act as a transition home for the cold, hungry, lonely and love deprived street children. The street children enrolled in the organization are taught life skills and hand work that can help them attain financial independence in adulthood. The organization also tracks down these children’s families and relatives and involve the two parties in counselling till reunion is achieved.
