Key of Hope desires to reach thousands of poverty, HIV and AIDS stricken South African children with the love of God, transforming them into ambassadors of change in their families, schools and communities. Key of Hope hosts multiple mission teams every year with varying purposes and aims ranging from construction to
children’s ministry to conferences for local pastors to sports camps.
