Media Partnerships Part of our mission as an organization is to amplify the voices of our partner communities. Our high-impact media programs are inspired and envisioned by our partners; we share them in order to bring their ideas to global audiences. Through video projects, long form articles, photo essays and infographics, we seek to break barriers — and together, we’re shifting perceptions, shedding broken patterns of awareness, and practicing radical compassion. Ultimately, this work will create stronger global connections. Thanks to constant on-the-ground access, deep knowledge of the impacted areas, and long-term, trusting relationships, we’re able to capture stories and insights that go far beyond the expected. MAMA HOPE can bring your media organization an intimate connection to the people and stories that matter. Our voice is confident and purposeful because our message and vision are clear. We want the world to connect more deeply and more honestly than ever before because we believe that, through this new level of trust, we will finally bring an end to extreme poverty. If you’re interested in helping build this movement — to change perceptions and foster global awakening, please contact us to start a conversation.

NGO Partnerships ACCELERATE FUNDING, IMPACT & REACH FOR YOUR NGO Every NGO has a core set of strengths and areas of focus. But what if those skills don’t align with a community’s needs? Does the relationship wane for a period of months or years? What if building your NGO started with building relationships, and the projects and needs were met by you or your close partners? It’s a radical approach, and we invite you to join us in reshaping the global development sector — starting from the ground up. Global Advocates Our uniquely trained Global Advocates bring funding and human centered development skills to your NGO. Advocates offer on-the-ground expertise, so you can focus on fundraising and awareness programs.

Grassroots Community Partnerships A Social, Spiritual & Organizational Foundation Community-led Organizations (CLOs) are at the core of our work because they form the foundation for social, environmental and spiritual prosperity in their own communities. Our CLO partners — which we also call our grassroots partners — originate from and function within existing social networks, and are typically led by one or two respected individuals. CLOs work to meet locally identified needs, and as such, are perfectly positioned to make sustainable social change. Because CLO leaders are deeply connected to their communities, they are able to identify and mobilize them in a way that outsiders would easily overlook. MAMA HOPE’s CLO partners are doing transformational, frontline work in each of their pockets of the world — from ensuring that people have enough food to eat and water to drink, to transforming unsustainable farming methods, to educating adults and children, to ensuring access to quality health care. How MAMA HOPE Partners With CLOs MAMA HOPE acts as a third-party consulting organization to CLOs. Sometimes communities contact us directly, seeking our support in their growth; sometimes we are connected through our existing on-the-ground network. Our partnership is organized around completion of projects, and includes a signed statement of work where roles and responsibilities are clearly defined. This negotiation and codified approach is an important piece of self-determination and respect that protects both parties. Once we have aligned on a partnership agreement and project objectives, through our Community-led Partnerhships program, MAMA HOPE supports communities with adaptive programmatic support in area like strategic planning, financial and operational planning, communications and marketing, fundraising and monitoring and evaluation. MAMA HOPE also provides flexible funding to kick start our CLO's initiatives.
