Our Work at a Glance
Education plays a big part in lifting children and communities out of poverty. Hope St sponsored children are educated to a level where they can provide for themselves and others. Child sponsorship pays school fees and provides uniforms and school materials. Hope St also supports vocational training schools, local libraries and tutoring programs.
Health & Wellbeing
Poverty has many detrimental outcomes for children including ill health, hunger and malnutrition. 3.3 million children aged under 15 died in sub-Saharan Africa in 2018. Hope St provides health care for children, and primary health care education for their families and communities. 1
Clean Water & Hygiene
Hope St works alongside local communities and supports them to create their own safe water sources and safe hygiene practices, lowering the rate of waterborne diseases and deaths.
In the world of the extremely poor, children’s freedom is often threatened. They are trafficked into the sex industry, conscripted as soldiers, or toil as cheap labour. Hope St supports nurturing homes for children at risk of being trafficked in Myanmar and Uganda. In Bulgaria we support a program educating vulnerable teens in orphanages and the women and children of Roma communities about the dangers of human trafficking.
Microfinance groups empower women with vulnerable families to provide the basic needs for their household such as food, shelter, clothing, medical care and education.
Hope St’s goal is to enable our international partners to be less reliant on international funding. We encourage communities living in extreme poverty to generate their own income and become self-sufficient. We work alongside local partners to establish social businesses to overcome poverty, provide jobs, and locally fund child-focused social projects.

The realities and risks street children face
“Economically, Uganda is experiencing high inflation rates and increased crime. The number of child hawkers in the city is increasing day by day. Some as young as six years have hit the streets and markets to sell vegetables, fruits, and other foodstuffs.”
