Hope Family Ministries was founded in 2005 in Burundi by Reverend Sylvestre Hakizimana. This local nonprofit organization consists of a dedicated group of individuals, primarily made up of family members and faithful members of the Local Church. Their mission is to provide hope and support to those in need within their community. Through various programs and initiatives, Hope Family Ministries aims to improve the lives of individuals and families by addressing their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Reverend Sylvestre Hakizimana's vision and the commitment of the organization's members have allowed them to make a positive impact in the lives of many people in Burundi.

The establishment of HFM was driven by the desire to guide and educate families on the Christian values needed for harmonious living at home. Additionally, the organization aimed to facilitate workshops and conferences for couples, equipping them with moral and spiritual knowledge. HFM also sought to implement activities that would enable financial stability for individuals, as well as engage in evangelistic and charitable efforts within hospitals and prisons. One of their important goals was to combat and prevent the spread of AIDS/HIV through educational initiatives. Furthermore, HFM was dedicated to providing assistance to war orphans and those affected by AIDS/HIV. They aimed to achieve this by constructing health centers and schools, while also establishing prayer and development centers within communities.

Since its establishment in 2006, HFM has successfully implemented various projects. One of the most significant projects is the support provided to primary and secondary school children. This support includes providing school materials such as notebooks, shoes, soaps, uniforms, and tuition. Each year, 100 children have received this assistance. HFM has also established a center in Kayokwe commune, Mwaro Province, where two houses have already been built. The organization aims to complete the third additional house that will be utilized for vocational training. Additionally, HFM has conducted seminars on AIDS awareness for pastoralists and leaders of vulnerable groups, including youth and women.
