We work with community-based organizations in rural villages of Uganda to address issues that perpetuate poverty through providing education and community development programs. We do this because every youth deserves an opportunity to thrive, to become a contributing member of a healthy and productive community, and to be free from extreme poverty.
In 2007, a passion to help less privileged children in Uganda gave birth to our 501 (c) 3 organization, Tusubira-We Have Hope. In 2010, that passion was reaffirmed to support secondary education for youth in rural eastern Uganda. Through time, you have stayed with us, followed and supported our work…

Today's message of hope is about land. I currently am reading a phenomenal book called Why Nations Fail, and in this book the connections between property and land are unraveled. While I continue to better understand the history and economics of land, I don't need intellect to know that the reality for so many Ugandan communities is one shackled to poverty.

Thanks to the hard work of CEP- Uganda (Child Empowerment Programme), Yana Community High School opened in early February 2017.
Our US-based board is currently weighing medical treatment options for two of our scholarship beneficiaries. The two students we currently support both suffer from congenital conditions which affect them on a daily basis.
We support children's education. Our NGO partner, Child Empowerment Programme of Uganda identifies needy students in the community and offers them the opportunity to be the leaders of tomorrow and to give back to their community.
We empower widow's groups by providing training, equipment and small business grants.
Through feedback from our Ugandan advisory board, and grant applications from our partner NGOs, we fund community impact projects including health initiatives and infrastructure which improve life in the village. By bringing our partner NGOs together on one advisory board we encourage the sharing of resources, ideas, and experiences which can offer support and hope.
