HOPE International Development Agency

HOPE brings help and hope to the world's poorest families. Our vision is to work with local communities to bring clean water and other basic needs to villages and communities in remote areas of the world.
Clean Water Needed to Transform Mela Gagula
 
The people of Mele Gagula suffer greatly due to a lack of clean water, which presently only 18% of the community have access to. Everyone else travels 3-4 hours to fetch possibly contaminated water from ponds, rivers, and unprotected springs. Dirty water means sickness, wasted time, missed school and lost hope. This makes it impossible for the remaining 2,400 people of Mele Gagula to meet their full potential and locks them in a cycle of poverty. With your help, clean water can end this. project reportread updates from the field
Start Self Help Groups for 200 Women in KaleboLaka
 
In rural Ethiopia, the most vulnerable members of the community are women and children. While their well-being is specifically targeted by our clean water projects, there is more than can be done to increase the ability of women to play a full role in decision-making and in the economic life. Increasing women's capacity to earn income and giving them knowledge and tools that can increase their self-confidence are powerful ways of improving the status of women and influencing the whole community project reportread updates from the field
Bringing much needed clean water to Gezesso
 
The primary aim of this project is to provide a sustainable water supply in Gezesso, a village of 2,383 people in southwest Ethiopia, using an innovative gravity-fed system and local community involvement, with associated public health, equal opportunity and community empowerment benefits. It involves capping 3 springs and constructing 3 water tanks, 12 water points, 11 wash basins and 340 pit latrines. Water will be piped 6.5 km from the capped springs to the village. project reportread updates from the field
Rebuilding Nepal and Empowering Women
 
One year ago, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, creating catastrophic damage, killing 7,500 people, and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless. Communities located in remote areas and ethnic minorities have been the most marginalized and are in greatest need of continued support. HOPE has partnered with a local organization, Women for Peace and Democracy Nepal (WPD), and identified two communities struggling to recover. A year after the quake, families are still working hard to rebuild. project reportread updates from the field
Bring clean water to an Ethiopian village of 1729
 
Kalebo Lake needs clean water. Not only will access to safe, clean water improve the health of this community of 1729 in southwest Ethiopia, but it will also provide the extra time for women to devote to economically improve their families and the opportunity for the young girls to attend school. These two factors have the potential to significantly change a community and lift them out of poverty. It is for this reason that HOPE has been working in this area of Ethiopia for over 30 years project reportread updates from the field
Clean water for Ethiopian community of 5,250
 
HOPE plans to work with the community of Dorza Bele in southern Ethiopia to access clean water. At present access to clean water in this community is 0%. Our goal is that by the end of 2015, this will be 100%. With safe, clean water in their own village, health will improve, children can attend school, more food can be grown and adults will have more time to pursue economic-related activities which will benefit their families and community. Clean water will bring hope for their future. project reportread updates from the field
Providing a basic education for 120 women in Kecho
 
There is a great need for literacy and life skills training for women in the village of Kecho. 90% of the women are illiterate and only 4% can read and write. This is because historically girls were not sent to school and instead had the arduous responsibility of daily collecting water. Since HOPE completed a water project in early 2015, women now have time to pursue economic-related activities. Providing a basic education in business skills will empower them to establish livelihoods. project reportread updates from the field
