HopeBuilders - Breaking the cycle of poverty through Education

Nelson Mandela once said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world!” HopeBuilders International has found education to be one of the keys to engaging in the fight to Break the Cycle of Poverty for orphans and widows in Uganda.

With almost 2.5 million orphans in Uganda this fight is very real, as these children and women have had hope, joy and life itself stripped from them – you see it in their eyes. They have lost the desire to dream, they simply try to survive. We have experienced firsthand how education can change all of this, just like Mandela stated.

Your partnership in this project will help educate and open up the minds of these children who will grow up to be the leaders of tomorrow – they will be the catalysts of change in Uganda and the world. It will give them hope.

The education provided through this project, will not only prepare these children for life, but it will become life itself. It has been said – "The day you stop learning is the day you stop living."

Every dollar gives life and learning to an orphan living in poverty.
