Mission

We empower women and children living in rural communities to overcome social injustice, disease, illiteracy, and poverty. Our small-scale interventions enhance their social and economic well being and help them reach their potential.

Programs

Healthcare: Hope Ofiriha's healthcare projects focus on reducing child mortality rates, preserving mothers' lives, and preventing and combating HIV infection. We run a health clinic and a maternity clinic in two remote villages. Education: We invest more in education than any other type of project because we strongly believe literacy is the ticket out of poverty. We fund the construction of school buildings and work to ensure children, especially girls and war orphans, stay in school. Agriculture: Our agricultural projects are aimed at diversifying crops, increasing food supplies, and improving farming and rural business practices. They mostly target rural women farmers who are heads of their households. Child Sponsorship: We find sponsors for the children of South Sudanese refugees living in slums in the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda. Many of these children are war orphans. Child sponsorship not only pays the fees necessary for these children to attend school, it ensures they are fed, clothed, and receive regular medical care. Microcredit: Our microcredit projects give small loans to women to help them start their own businesses. Environment: Our environmental projects combat deforestation, improve environmental health, and promote environmental awareness and conservation.
