Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Hearts & Hope was founded to transform communities in Uganda through education, health & wellness, and economic development. Too many of our fellow brothers & sisters in Uganda lack access to clean water, a quality education, or the economic opportunity that so many of us take for granted.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Student Sponsorship

Hearts & Hope facilitates student sponsorships for at risk children in Uganda, providing educational tuition, school supplies, clothing, and food for the school year.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Hearts & Hope installs clean water wells to provide safe sources of drinking water close to school.  This allows children to attend school instead of spending their days getting water from unsafe sources.

Population(s) Served
Families
Adults

Hearts & Hope constructs schools in Uganda where no school is close by or where current schools are under-serving the local population.  By being close to home and offering clean water as well (through our Clean Water program), the school becomes an oasis.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Families

Once basic infrastructure has been created within a village, Hearts & Hope identifies opportunities for small businesses, such as carpentry shops, sewing centers, and basic livestock operations.  This provides the village with economic opportunities and hope for current students.

Population(s) Served
Young adults
Adults

Providing educational scholarships to secondary and university students.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Hearts & Hope partners with communities across Uganda to focus on three areas: Health & Wellness, Education, and Small Business & Agricultural Development. Our goal is to provide communities with access to clean water & preventative health care; provide children with access to quality education (primary, secondary, and advanced); access to grants to start small businesses, agricultural development, or other self-sustaining income.

Hearts & Hope has partnered with 8 communities across Uganda over the past 10 years. Through this partnership, we have built 7 schools (8th to be finished in 2023) and provided educational sponsorships to over 1,200 students in 2022. In addition, we've installed more than 25 clean water borehole wells, providing access to clean water to thousands across Uganda. We also launched a small business grant program which provides at-risk youth and adults with startup capital that enable them to provide for themselves and their family.

Hearts & Hope has a team of dedicated professionals here in the US and Uganda, serving the communities we serve. In Uganda, our team of social workers manages our student sponsorship program and works with the parents or guardians of the students to address issues, such as access to healthcare services, academic assistance, etc.

Hearts & Hope has seen numerous students graduate from our educational program (either University or Vocational institutes) and find gainful employment. In many cases, we have seen former students return to their villages as trained teachers to serve their communities again. In addition, we have successfully constructed 7 (soon to be 9) school buildings which serve as day-schools for primary students in the area.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
