About Us

As the family goes, so goes the nation, and so goes the whole world in which we live!” Pope John Paul II, Patron Saint of Famille Espérance

Famille Espérance is a faith-based organization with a membership based approach. Its members are those who have signed and adopted its statutes, and who are committed to following its mission, vision, objectives, and core values. Its members are the primary beneficiaries of the organization’s programmes and services.

However, Famille Espérance also welcomes other interested persons who share its values and mission, and whose needs align with the organization’s areas of intervention. These individuals can benefit from Famille Espérance’s services and support, provided they adhere to the organization’s principles and requirements. Overall, Famille Espérance aims to foster a sense of community and solidarity among its members and beneficiaries, with focus on promoting strong, health, and harmonious families based on christian values.
