Giving Tuesday 2019 Campaign is LIVE!

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving around the world! It's an impactful way to donate towards small nonprofits doing great work! For us, that means YOU are helping us get closer and closer to achieving our mission in Rwanda. Check out our new program below and GIVE a hand in making our efforts more fruitful with child development. Any amount donated is SO helpful. You can even create your own fundraising team or donate directly to this campaign. Thank you!

This year's Giving Tuesday campaign for Hope Shines is laser focused on launching a new program called the Social Worker program. Social workers are a vital lifeline to youth development. They stand up every day for human rights and social justice to help strengthen our communities. They can be the voice for people who aren't being heard, and they tackle serious social issues faced by our children in Rwanda.

The program will help us dig much deeper into the psycho-social issues our children face on a daily basis in their communities. Currently, a Hope Shines child gets supported in ways that help the child be able to attend school and gain that extra edge in succeeding in the classroom. Additionally, the child is getting educated on what healthy living means as they grow into adulthood. All this is not possible with support from so many around the world in the Hope Shines family. The area of growth for our interventions and doing more with this group, is a need for a social worker. A social worker for Hope Shines will begin to assess and identify challenges and provide tools for the children and their families to use that allows them to better navigate through life in a healthier more manageable way.

Let's pull our passion and resources together and help fund this much-needed and impactful program so our kids can thrive more than ever. Let's give them hope this Giving Tuesday season and equip them with the mental capacity to tackle new challenges and know how to manage through them in a positive manner.

The Social Worker program will offer:

  • A dedicated licensed social worker team to work with our children on a weekly frequency AND work with the families and caregivers that care for them at home.
  • An online data center platform on our children and families, recorded in real time through an app to help us develop and adjust programming that suits the individual needs of the children so they can be successful and thrive!

CAN'T DONATE? If you are unable to donate at this time and you think this is a viable program that you believe in, you can help in other ways too! Subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on social media, or volunteer with us, or better yet, spread the word of this fundraiser campaign! Our goal for this program is $5000. Help us make this a reality and ultimately improve lives of children and give them a fighting chance in this world! Thank you!
