An Investment Opportunity for the Discerning Humanitarian

The International Orphan Children’s Fund (I.O.C.F.) is a restricted-use fund established and administered by Lifeline of Hope International Orphan Aid.
The fund’s purpose is to provide discerning businesses and individuals the opportunity to make a difference in our collective future at a global level, while knowing how and where 100% of their money is being spent.

Lifeline of Hope
Lifeline of Hope is a 501 C 3 non-profit incorporated in the State of Montana that has been providing for the daily needs of orphans in 8 countries for more than seven years.

NBC called Lifeline of Hope “…an organization that truly lives up to its name.”

Ending the Cycle of Neglect

• Orphans often suffer from abuse, neglect, poor health, emotional trauma, and lack of education and training without intervention and proper care. • Neglected orphans statistically turn to crime, joining gangs, mafia and even terrorist organizations in order to survive. • This lifestyle makes them more likely to perpetuate the cycle, abandoning their own children, which in turn creates more orphans.

Proven Programs
Lifeline of Hope has spent the last seven years developing programs that break this cycle, programs with proven results. Our programs are based on Maslow’s hierarchy of basic human needs, providing everything the children need to become whole and productive members of society when they integrate as young adults.

Proven Results
Case Study: The last 32 out of 32 graduates from Lermontovka Orphanage in Russia have gone on to become successful young adults in college, vocational schools and in the work force. Compare this to pre-Lifeline statistics of less than 50% successful integration into society. Our programs work!
