Hope Arising, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, empowers Ethiopian families to achieve perpetual self-reliance. Founded in 2007, our organization was established on the premise that each child will live healthy, gain education and achieve economic self-reliance for a future of hope. We provide educational support, micro-enterprise training and loans, health care and sanitation training, AIDS awareness and prevention instruction, infrastructure projects, 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 self-sufficiency.
Hope Arising’s success and unique model was highlighted in the Arbinger Institute’s book The Outward Mindset. Our volunteers have also been honored with the Crown Council’s national Humanitarian of the Year Award and Brigham Young University’s Distinguished Service Award.
Experience Real Change
We currently take travel teams to Ethiopia twice a year. Once during the spring, and again during the fall. These trips are life changing opportunities to make a difference in the lives of people in Dera, Ethiopia.
