MAMA HOPE is championing community-led change.

MAMA HOPE nurtures the work of community-led organizations around the world. We help to ensure that they have the freedom and the resources they need to change lives in their communities and build a better future for generations to come. We also provide a platform for their voices to be heard through the cultivation of a global community of individuals and organizations advocating for their work and for the use of ethical storytelling.

Our work begins with support for local entrepreneurs:
