Mama Hope works in close partnership with local African organizations to connect them with the resources required to transform their own communities.
All our projects are managed for and by partner communities themselves to ensure sustainability. So far, we have achieved our mission by funding the completion of schools, health clinics, children’s centers, clean water systems and food security projects.
