Education is not enough.

As displaced refugees, the women in Uganda's Acholi Quarter lack the finances to develop their own businesses and secure their own future.  That's where Project Have Hope comes in.  After providing vocational training, many women would like to start their own business using their newly acquired skills, but they lack money and the collaterel a typical lending institution would require.  We help them establish sustainable business opportunities to promote economic stability. 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.

For just $25 you can help a fiercely determined mother carve out a small business and provide for her family.

Our Mission

The mission of Project Have Hope has always been to empower women to become financially independent. With little formal education, many of the women with whom we work are forced to toil long hours for little pay in the dangerous conditions of the stone quarry.  We strive to change that.

To further our work, we've created the women sponsorship program.  You'll meet the women behind the fabulous jewelry and learn how you can help make their dreams become reality.  Each of these inspiring and inspired entrepreneurs has already started a successful business.  Now they're looking for ways to expand those businesses.  As a sponsor, you help a woman invest in her future and you become part of the community that supports her.  Consider honoring someone by making a donation this holiday season.

University Bound

Moris has always been an exceptional student.  Hard-working, focused, Moris knew he wanted a life that was different from his parents.  Without a formal education, his mom labors in a stone quarry while his father does carpentry work.  His parnts lacked the funds to pay his school fees, so Project Have Hope stepped in.

A graduate of our scholastic sponsorship program, Moris is now attending Uganda Technical College in Lira, in Northern Uganda, where he is studying water engineering.  He is hoping to learn practical skills which will enable him to improve the water quality and availability for his fellow Ugandans.  We're so proud of his accomplishments and his tenacity at striving to make his dreams a reality.  For just $25, you can help a young scholar fulfill his dreams.
