After two of her children died, Joyce Mary was left raising four grandchildren… and was struggling to make ends meet. But since the start of her IGA business around 20 months ago, she can afford to pay for two children to attend local schools, while another attends Child of Hope school for free and the fourth child is still at home with her. She is extremely happy that she can look after them all, providing clothes for them, paying the rent, buying water and getting charcoal for fuel to cook.

We love it when our Income Generating Activities (IGA) make a significant difference to mums and their families. A business start-up can help lift a family from the worst effects of poverty in just months, and the benefits just keep coming. Jennifer is a great example.

Do you own a vehicle in the UK that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating its sale (or scrap) value to us through Giveacar, which raises money for charities by scrapping and selling old cars.

A donation sent for a sponsored child’s birthday went a lot further than that… and resulted in a lasting, wide-reaching benefit for the whole family!

Our school has reached a major milestone… with the first children finishing their primary education! These are the very first pupils that started with Child of Hope, when we ran a small nursery class from a borrowed church hall.
