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!
Blog: Case Studies
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.
The children who receive your shoeboxes come from communities affected by poverty where they often face deep challenges. Communities often struggle with issues like a lack of clean water, the inability to provide balanced, nutritious meals each day, poor healthcare, low incomes and exclusion. That’s why the shoeboxes that they receive make such a difference!
We seek to provide help to children living in poverty through working with their families and communities to bring lasting change. One if the effective ways we empower families and help increase income is through Village Savings and Loans Associations.
We implement projects which seek to prevent the spread of diseases such as HIV/AIDS through raising awareness, reducing stigma and providing support and care to those affected.
