Visions of Hope Foundation, Inc. (VOH) is the children and youth ministry of the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Group of Ministries. It was established in 1999 to address the needs of poor children and youth from disadvantaged families and to give them the chance to grow and reach full maturity as individuals in the image and likeness of God. Initially, its objective was to provide cash assistance for the elementary and high school education of abandoned, orphaned and neglected children in urban and rural poor communities where the CCT branches were operating.
The idea of serving young children originated from houses in CCT communities where fellowship group meetings of the micro finance ministry under the CCT Credit Cooperative were held. Community partners often brought their young children with them to these meetings where the children grabbed their focus away from the fellowship. It was then that some branches began to offer child care services while fellowship meetings were held. In time, CCT thought of establishing preschools in open or rented spaces near the branches and founded the CCT- Visions of Hope Christian School on September 2011.
Today, VOH operates community-based kindergartens, tribal schools, residential homes, community health clinics and other community-based social services for children and youth geared towards nurturing the Filipino children and youth in Christ-centered faith families, empowering them as agents of change for community transformation and nation-building.
