Fundacion Esperanza


Fundación Esperanza is focused on placing orphans with forever families. In cases when that doesn’t happen, Fundación Esperanza provides good, holistic care for the children while they are legally in our care, and helps them transition successfully into adulthood. We currently have a Baby Home with 22 children, a Boys’ Home with 10 boys, and two 18 year-old women in the Life Transition Program. We also have a Saturday afternoon ministry bathing, clothing, and feeding street children.

The South American country of Bolivia is home to more than 13,000 orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children who live without hope every day.  Of these 13,000 boys and girls, an estimated 5,000 live within the city of Cochabamba. While a small number of adoptions do occur each year, the vast majority of these children grow up either on the streets or in orphanages and institutions, completely unaware of what it is to be loved or told they are a precious creation of God.  While the future may currently be bleak for some, Fundación Esperanza (Hope Foundation), a ministry of Lifesong for Orphans, is committed to changing the trajectory of orphaned and vulnerable children in Bolivia.
