GOOD HOPE INITIATIVE Charity Profile
Good Hope Initiative (GHIN) is a non government community based organization, its a nonprofit making organization, borne out of necessity to supplement government effort, other civil service organizations contributions for improving livelihoods of our people, religious institutions and other local efforts by groups and individuals to ameliorate the living conditions of children.
Good Hope Initiative is founded by members of Myanzi sub-county in 2006 who have themselves experienced a hard life due to a gap in development that has been ignored in the project area which is situated in Kisweera Village, Myanzi sub-county, Kasanda County, Mubende District in the republic of Uganda (East Africa).
All members agreed that our poor rural children will always remain poor unless efforts are made to tackle the underlying courses of poverty, ignorance and diseases. (HIV/AIDS, POVERTY AND ILLITERACY, are the common problem in our community)
The local poor people wants medical assistance education for there children, clean water, support to widows, orphans and other destitute. Good Hope Initiative was formed to improve livelihood of the rural disadvantaged children /orphans and poor people through collective and participatory which enhance there social and economic development.
At the moment we have a number of families we assist and 90 children (but the demand it too high to add others) we offer to them social services, psychotherapy, provision of basics in childrens education, sponsorship, caring out medial check ups
