HOPE Enterprises - Ethiopia

The mission of HOPE is to provide hope for the needy in Ethiopia through holistic human development. They strives to help individuals in need to help themselves out of hopelessness.

HOPE has developed a strategy of intervention, targeting exclusively the poorest of the poor, in a sequence of building blocks called the ladders of Hope. Over 20 projects are underway in five of the nine states of Ethiopia. Recently, HOPE has further expanded the scope to higher education with the founding of the HOPE University College.

HOPE has designed a mechanism of service delivery that avoids the kind of dependency that sometimes comes with charitable work. The Ladders of HOPE is a strategy of intervention that takes a participant through integrated building blocks toward independent living and self-sufficiency. With an emphasis on individual effort, personal responsibility is invoked and encouraged, building confidence and initiative to reinforce self-determination.
