We highlight under-reported human rights issues and support grassroots efforts. We are raising an Education Fund for Refugee Teen Girls in Uganda and Kenya, enabling them to continue their secondary education. Thank you
Our 2018 campaign is focused on scholarships that enable teen South Sudanese refugee girls to return to secondary school. Over 1M South Sudanese have fled fighting in South Sudan and the children were forced to leave school behind. Though they have found safety in Uganda and Kenya, they are devastated by the deaths of their parents and the loss of their high-school education – the only hope they have for the future.
We began the program in early 2017 to support four girls, Grace, Esther, Joyce and Irene, and ensured they could complete their secondary education in boarding school. In 2019, our goal is to increase the number of girls we support in Uganda to 8, and the same number of refugee girls in Kenya. We are excited to partner with the Windle Trust to improve the selection and monitoring of the program.
At Exposing Hope, we build awareness of under-reported issues through the power of images and inspirational stories from the front lines. Finding the dignity and humanity in situations of violence, we spotlight the human capacity for healing and hope; and connect individuals with tangible and powerful ways to create lasting solutions at the local level.
The three ways in which we go about changing the world (in our own small way) are a combination of the following three practices. With the support of our donors we:
HIGHLIGHT the people and organizations that are making a difference on the frontlines of under-reported Human Rights issues through documentary photography and story-telling;
DIRECT FUNDS to local organisations working with our subjects that we have personally vetted;
and MENTOR ORGANISATIONS such that they can do a better job and secure additional funding.
The three activities don’t necessarily commence at the same time, but experience has shown that as our relationships grows with local organisations, the best way to work on issues is working at these three levels with in-country partners.
