WHO IS HOPE ARISING?

Hope Arising is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to “empowering families to perpetual self-reliance” in the areas surrounding Dera, Ethiopia – a village of about 26,000 in the central part of the country. The organization was founded in 2007 on a simple premise: That each child will live healthy, gain an education and achieve economic self-reliance for a future of hope. Specifically, we support schools, micro-enterprise, health care and sanitation training, AIDS awareness and prevention, and infrastructure projects.

We’re proud to have the support of hundreds of volunteers from the United States, Canada and around the world. Our efforts are measured for effectiveness and designed to improve long-term outcomes and self-sufficiency. Read More
