The Hope Effect:  Consider donating to support orphans globally.


Millions of orphaned and vulnerable children around the world are growing up without the love of a family.

But there is clear and compelling research on the damaging effects of traditional, institutional orphan care.

Children should not grow up in orphanages…kids do best when they are raised in families.

The Hope Effect is changing orphan care by providing innovative family-style care, which allows every child to flourish and thrive.

We are changing the way the world cares for orphans…because every child deserves a family.

FOUNDER - Joshua Becker

Joshua Becker is an author, speaker, and philanthropist. He has written several best-selling books on minimalism, and his website Becoming Minimalist has more than one million readers each month.

Inspired by his wife’s experience being adopted, Joshua founded The Hope Effect in 2015.


Joe is the founder and executive director of The Hope Effect. Joe’s journey into the orphan care world began more than 20 years ago when he and his wife adopted their daughter Sydney from Korea.

Seven years ago, they adopted again – this time an older child from Thailand who spent the early part of her life in an institution.

Joe has seen firsthand that children develop best when they are in a family environment, and he is passionate about seeing orphans cared for – not in institutions, but in families.
