MAMA HOPE is championing community led change.

MAMA HOPE helps communities achieve lasting, self-directed prosperity by challenging a broken aid system — one that perpetuates poverty and disempowerment. We do this by directly supporting projects in education, health, women’s empowerment, agriculture and beyond — that are 100% community-led.

We connect local leaders with global opportunities to share their stories and access new forms of funding. We challenge the industry to do better through our high-impact media campaign, Stop the Pity, and through the Global Advocate Program, a unique fellowship that trains a next-generation workforce to become the empathetic leaders, connectors, and philanthropists of tomorrow.

Our work begins with support for local entrepreneurs:
