About Project Have Hope

Project Have Hope is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that seeks to empower women in the Acholi Quarter of Uganda by providing education to both the women and their children and assisting the women to establish business opportunities to promote economic stability and sustainability.

 

To make this mission a reality, we offer support in a variety of ever-expanding ways

We believe education is integral to achieve sustained success. Our goal is to provide education, at all levels, to each woman. Many of the women have never attended school and are unable to write their names or do simple arithmetic. Others have a basic education, but not enough to allow them to obtain jobs in fields that would enable them to earn a greater income. By providing education across the board, we are not only empowering the women, but also, giving them the much needed tools that will help them to create a brighter future.

Education is not enough

The women lack the finances to develop their own businesses and secure their own future. We provide loans to stimulate their economic development. Whether it's capital that enables a woman to buy fish and rent a space at the market, or money to purchase a sewing machine for one of our vocational training graduates, we are there to support them every step of the way.

We can't forget the children

Most of the women are not only caring for their own children, but also the children of relatives who have died of HIV-related illnesses. The women select the most needy of the children and we do the rest. We enroll them in high quality day and boarding schools. We supply them with uniforms, books and the rest of the long list of requirements, from pencils to mattresses. We do all we can to ensure the children receive a quality education that will help them to realize their potential and create a future filled with the basics of life: food, clean drinking water, access to medical care - all the things we take for granted.

They just need a little help. Support the women of Project Have Hope today!

  1. Great Cause, Great Gift

    Posted by Crysta on 28th Apr 2013

    I bought one of these cool bracelets for my niece for her seventh birthday. She loved it! Colorful for kids or more somber colors for serious adults. Totally affordable and supports families in need. I find these bracelets far more comfortable to wear than chunky plastic jewelry. They make a great conversation piece, too.
