We believe solutions to poverty should restore dignity to impoverished individuals and move them into economic self-sufficiency so they may become leaders of change within their families and surrounding communities. We have a simple approach...
THE MOST VULNERABLE
We respond to the call of Jesus to love the poor and care for the most vulnerable in society. We believe everyone, even the most broken, can be transformed into healed individuals who can care for themselves and their families.
Research reveals that investing in women in developing countries is essential to achieving broader development goals. Women who are provided jobs, education and encouragement will be more likely to instill those values in future generations. We believe that investing in women will reap lasting rewards for future generations.
We emphasize community-based solutions to poverty by working with local people, local resources and local talents. Currently, through the raising of sheep for Handspun Hope, specialized training has been offered to our local shepherd and other community members who now care for the animals.
Through a holistic and relational work environment, Handspun Hope works to transform lives. Many of the women served by our organization suffer from traumatic loss, HIV/AIDS and marginalization in their own communities. We believe true transformation can only come through relationship with Jesus Christ. Handspun Hope provides the tools, support and community to help our women live a lifestyle of the Gospel.
We aim to empower adults so that, through health awareness, financial stability and educational values, the people we work with will become better parents and parent-figures in the lives of vulnerable children in Rwanda. Investing in the lives of Rwandan women shapes future generations.
