To all of our wonderful Donors,

The project team with students from University of Tennessee left today for Uganda to work with the community to cultivate farmland and construct a water tank to provide sustainable nourishment, fresh water, and income for the House of Hope School.  If you are interested in following our project this summer as we work in Uganda, you may do so at this link:  We will be continually posting blogs about our experiences living and working with the community. Our project page will be taken off of Global Giving at the beginning of June when we make our final donation to the community. If you are interested in making a final donation to the House of Hope School your support would be greatly appreciated in the next two weeks.


Thank you for helping us engage students, empower communities, and eradicate poverty.

Less than one month away from the Ugandan House of Hope start date, and the project preparations are underway and are in full swing. Six students at the University of Tennessee have been recruited for the project and are preparing by cultural education, learning about the needs of the project, and obtaining necessary shots and documents. We are less than $100 away from our monetary goal and plan to raise the rest with various on-campus ventures. The group is incredibly excited and will be transferring all of the funds to the House of Hope in two weeks. We are so very grateful for all of the donations that have allowed us to make this project a reality.
