Over the years the team of the Village of Hope and its members have been recognised and awarded with several honorary titles, prizes and commendations; a number of organisations have accepted us as members or cooperation partners.
We are truly grateful, but not for having received the awards, but for the fact that our work and efforts have been noticed. It means that people have noticed those who need help and their families, and this enables us to give more help to those who need it.
In September 2014, at the 95th anniversary of Estonian organized firefighting, the Minister of Internal Affairs and the Director General of the Estonian Rescue Board gave recognition to a founder member of NGO The Village of Hope Fire Department and a voluntary rescuer Viljam Borissenko, with theRescue Service Medal.
In 2010 the founder of the Village of Hope, Bishop Emeritus Märt Vähi was presented with the Badge of Merit of Harju County by the County Governor for citizen initiative and a commendable contribution in the field of social work.
In 2006, on the 85th anniversary of the Estonian Police, the Village of Hope was given a Commendation Letter of Gratitude by the North Prefecture of the Policefor the excellent contribution to collaboration.
