1. BRIEF HISTORY OF HOHVIPAD
Horn of Hope Vision for Peace and Development of Nigeria (HOHVIPAD) has been in existence for, well over a decade-since 2005. A small group of burdened people with Christ-like love, within our local Church Community- Our Father’s House and Ministry International Yola, the Adamawa State Capital, became obsessed with and began to respond positively to various pressing needs among the low income people, widows, the sick, indigent pupils and students. HOHVIPAD then helped to reach out to indigent Pupils and Students with Scholarship offers, supported several widows, the sick, HIV and Aids Patients and the less privileged within specific local Communities in Adamawa State . In January 2015, the Church began discussions on the need to officially register HOHVIPAD as a Non – Governmental Organization (NGO).
