We receive no government funding and so rely on the generosity of our donors. Special thanks to the following Hope for Girls and Women supporters:
Hope for Girls and Women was selected as the 2020-2022 FAWCO Target Project: S.A.F.E. (Safe Alternatives for Female Genital Mutilation Elimination)
Tanzania Development Trust for building the original Safe House for us in Mugumu. Rhobi ran this under the auspices of the Anglican Church very successfully from when it opened in December 2014 until it was taken over by the new Bishop in July 2017.
UNFPA for granting us a capacity building grant in 2018/2019
Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives for funding village screenings of In the Name of Your Daughter, the wonderful film by Giselle Portenier showing our work.
TCDC Tanzanian Communication Development Centre for funding a malaria project which enabled Hope to reach 46,163 people in Serengeti in 2019 to teach strategies for prevention.
Nomad Tanzania who are sponsoring 5 of our students to gain diplomas in hotel management and hospitality - helping them to achieve their dreams and move into adulthood with independence.
Four Seasons Hotel for their donation of a much needed vehicle and ongoing running costs. Throughout the pandemic, the Four Seasons team have generously donated food and fuel to help those in our care - and those needing our help.
USAID who funded us $9000 to set up the Digital Champions programme through
WomenConnect, allowing us to train protection committees in 87 villages in Serengeti and appoint a Digital Champion with a smartphone in each.
In addition to the organisations listed above, we also send thanks to:
Vandoom Stichting Fund, Munich International Women Club, Humanatura Stiftung Fund, Ev. Luth Kirchenkries Fund, Unite the World with Africa.
