Hope Arising is a non-profit dedicated to “empowering families to perpetual self-reliance” in Dera, Ethiopia– a village of about 26,000 in the central part of the country. Founded in 2007, our organization was founded on a simple premise: That each child will live healthy, gain education and achieve economic self-reliance for a future of hope. Specifically we support infrastructure projects, educational support, micro-enterprise, health care and sanitation training, AIDS awareness and prevention, and more.
We’re proud to have the support of hundreds of volunteers
from the United States, Canada, and around the
world. All of our efforts are measured
for effectiveness and designed to
improve long-term outcomes and
