Project Have Hope

Project Have Hope works with a group of 100 women in the Acholi Quarter of Uganda and helps them transform their lives and the lives of their families. Through the sale of their beautiful hand-crafted goods, as well as through our adult literacy, vocational training, and children' education programs, the women can feed their families, send their children to school, and look forward to a richer future.

Finding Her Way

Christine
Christine

Meet Christine. She is just 20 years old but has great plans for her future. She hails from war-torn Northern Uganda where she lost her father and numerous relatives to the violence.  Her mother brought Christine and her younger brother to the safety of Kampala.  Although in Kampala, they didn't face the life-threatening occurrences of the North, they faced relentless poverty and urban strife.  Nonetheless, Christine struggled to complete secondary four.  She had hoped to pursue nursing, however, chemistry stumped her.

Within the Acholi Quarter, Christine found role models in other graduates of Project Have Hope's tailoring program and decided to follow in their footsteps. She is now undertaking a two year course to gain a certificate in fashion designing and tailoring.  "My life has not been easy.  My mother struggles to support my brother and I," remarks Christine.  "But I know that education is the key to my future."

A donation of just $25 provides tuition for one term and gives a young woman the power to build her own future.

New Skills and a Chance for a New Life

Coline
Coline

Meet Coline. She is 44 years old and supports 9 children; 7 of her own and 2 orphans. She sought refuge in the Acholi Quarter in 1999 to escape the war, during which most of her relatives and fellow villagers were killed by the rebels. Struggling to support her large family, Coline found hope in Project Have Hope's vocational training program.  She completed a beauty salon course and was granted an interest-free loan to set up shop.  She now has a bustling storefront on the main road of the Quarter.  Once unsure of her future, today she has a steady income and hopes to return to the North where she will rebuild her home and can continue her work as an esteemed hairdresser.

As the New Year starts, consider giving the gift of empowerment.

I would be a street child if I weren't in school.

Solomon
Solomon

Meet Solomon.  He is 15 years old and the only son in a family of seven children.  Through Project Have Hope's sponsorship, Solomon is attending one of the top secondary schools in Kampala.  A focused and dedicated scholar, he uses his down time to join dicussion groups and hopes to become an engineer.

"My toughest challenge has been understanding everything and maintaining my grades.  It takes a lot of hard work.
I overcome these challenges by consulting with teachers and by developing a spirit of competion.   This helps to improve my grades.
If i wasn't at school, I would be a miserable child who doesn't know how to write or speak English. I would end up being a street child."

 

Children, like Solomon, were born into their circumstances of poverty, displacement, and futures as hard laborers.  Project Have Hope is changing that.  You can help.  Just $10 provides rquirements for a student.  $100 provides tuition for one term.  Consider giving the gift, the opportunity, of education to a child who would not otherwise have it.
