Where Most Needed
Your general donation will go toward our most pressing needs at Hope Positive Africa.
Support Our Communities With Scholarships
We provide scholarships for in our communities which cover full tuition at the best schools and all uniforms and supplies needed. Our kids attend private schools on the trimester system so recurring donations are very helpful to ensure that we are able to pay 100% of the tuition for all of our kids before the start of each trimester. And sometimes we have the opportunity to help the adult members in our communities with scholarships as well to further their education and get better jobs!
Help Us Fight Food Insecurity In Our Communities
According to Oxfam International, a fifth of the African population (about 278 million) is considered undernourished, and 55 million of its children under the age of five are stunted due to severe malnutrition. Because of your donations to this specific fund we are not only able to provide emergency food aid, but we also maintain a community garden to not only share its bounty with our community, we also use it as a classroom to teach poor Africans sustainable farming techniques so they can learn how to feed themselves, instead of relying on the broken system that made them undernourished in the first place.
Help Us Fight Housing Insecurity In Our Communities
We are fighting to reduce housing insecurity in our communities by acquiring land to build and maintain a refuge in our village that includes an organic community farm where we can also teach members of our community how to make their own food. Because of your faithful support to this fund we have also been able to rise to the occasion and acquire land for widows and surprise them with their own house!
Help make sure we always have funds ready for medical emergencies and routine care in our communities.
Help us with travel costs for our programs in Africa and fundraising trips around the world.

Hope Phillips is responsible for communicating her vision that we all gladly follow and work hard to implement.
