Children’s HopeChest is pioneering sustainable development projects through our CarePoint model that we believe is the future for nonprofit engagement. We are thrilled to be on the frontlines of this effort to empower local communities with the tools, infrastructure, and resources they need to break the cycle of poverty and build a better future. Rather than just hearing about the work, YOU will get to be on the ground and meet the people who are actively involved in transforming their communities with your help.

Encounter Communities Being Transformed

This trip will give you an opportunity to engage with the power of your compassion in action – firsthand. During your visit, you’ll get to see several community projects in realtime including:

  • Local savings groups that help people experiencing poverty build financial stability
  • Emotional health and wellness efforts
  • Agricultural and animal husbandry projects that help families break the cycle of poverty
  • Water kiosks and small businesses
  • CarePoint operations and their holistic impact in the community
  • Graduation from Uganda Leadership and Entrepreneurship Development Program (UGLDEP)
  • The power of the community-to-community model during a U.S. Partner Visit at Ochuloi Uganda CarePoint
