Team Hope’s Rwandan partners work with survivors or the 1995 genocide against the Tutsi people. Our most recent project with them aims to improve the income capacity of residents in Kabagali. The project is called “The Kabagali Pineapple Project”! And as you might guess, involves growing a lot of pineapples!
Our most recent project in Kenya is working in an area inhabited by the Kamba community. 50% of the community is made up of children and most families eat what they grown in their own gardens. But the land there is dry and the rain is unreliable so food is not plentiful and children’s health suffers because of the lack of nutrition, clean drinking water and sanitation.
Last year, with your help, we sent a phenomenal 173,563 thank you's! Christmas Shoebox gifts to children across 12 countries in Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.

One year ago this week, Russia invaded Ukraine, driving millions from their homes, destroying cities and beginning a war which, 12 months on, appears to have no end in sight. Read about the work that Team Hope have been doing to support displaced Ukrainians and how we will assist with the longer term needs now developing for the many people who fled their homes at short notice and need help adapting to new realities.
