HOW WE PARTNER
Communities know what they want and need. In response, we have created a loose framework for engagement that includes six pillars of support — all of which is at-will and customizable to meet their objectives. Ten years of incredible outcomes and strong friendships have proven our human centered model is a pattern for success.
FRAMEWORK OF 6 INPUTS
GOAL: LOCAL LEADERS AND COMMUNITIES WITH STRONG SELF BELIEF AND SENSE OF OWNERSHIP FOR LONG-TERM POSITIVE IMPACT
Our partners drive project vision and execution. We listen and support.
TOOLS & SUPPORT
GOAL: ORGANIZATIONS REACHING THEIR VISIONS FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
We have a dedicated team that works closely on a continuous basis with our community partners in the areas of strategic planning, monitoring and evaluation, planning for resilience, environmental sustainability, marketing and media, advocacy, personal and team development.
GOAL: STRONG AND ABLE LOCAL TEAMS RUNNING QUALITY AND IMPACTFUL PROJECTS
We fund specific trainings for team members at our partner organizations that have been researched and identified as beneficial by our partners. Some examples of trainings we have funded are permaculture, monitoring and evaluation and sports education.
GOAL: SUSTAINABLE ORGANIZATIONS, CHANGING LIVES.
We invest funding in projects that grow the financial, environmental and social sustainability of the organization and its surrounding community.
GOAL: PARTNERS HAVE ACCESS TO SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHER MAMA HOPE PARTNERS TO INCREASE THEIR CONFIDENCE, KNOWLEDGE AND VOICE FOR BROADER CHANGE IN THEIR COUNTRY, REGION AND WORLD.
The Mama Hope Family meets once a year at our Annual Sustainability Conference and through learning exchanges and area-based coalition meetups.
GOAL: PARTNERS ARE PROVIDED WITH FUNDING, HUMAN SUPPORT AND EXPERTISE FOR THEIR PROJECTS BY PASSIONATE YOUNG PEOPLE FROM BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES.

“We continue to learn about ways of surviving later without relying at all on outside funding and we desire that other organizations too can arrive at this mindset.”
