Project HOPEFUL developed the Hope + Sisterhood program to support mothers in developing countries who are infected with or affected by the HIV virus. The initial goal of the Sisterhood was to help prevent children from becoming orphans because of the HIV virus. Since its initiation, the Sisterhood has grown to provide not only financial and prayer support for mothers and their children, but also micro-financing and job training which allows the mothers to be self-supporting upon graduation from the program. Your partnership in the Sisterhood will be life changing for one family.
We launched our Hope + Sisterhood program in Uganda in 2012. The success of our participating mothers has been miraculous.
The vast majority of the Ugandan sisters who have graduated from our program are sustaining small businesses that are allowing them to experience fruitful independence, many for the first time in their lives. We also provide our Ugandan mothers with access to medical care in a facility maintained by some of our Ugandan partners.
All of the sisters in our Ugandan program are HIV positive, and each is in need of a hand-up to escape the cycle of poverty. Your monthly partnership of $50 for one year (a total of $600) will provide a mother with the funds necessary to sustain her family and consider starting a business. When you join the sisterhood, you will have the opportunity to select your sister. Once you have contacted us and are matched, you will receive a picture and information about your sister. You may also choose to write letters to her and even meet her.
