Graduating class of May 2019
2019: Roots of Hope is grateful to UK-based Ark Charitable Trust for a successful fundraising drive which yielded nearly £2000 in donations. Funds were used from July - December 2019 to train another 21 students in tailoring and hairdressing, and to provide sewing machines, financial literacy training, and reproductive health education to the students who graduated from the program in May 2019.

Vocational Skills Training
We’ve helped over 150 women learn income-generating skills like tailoring, knitting, basket weaving, hairdressing, and jewelry making, so they can pay for education and nutritious food.
We distributed chickens to 50 families and trained them in poultry keeping. The number of chickens doubled within a year and money earned from eggs helped pay for education.
We are a non-governmental organization working with the women of the Rwenzori Mountains to address issues affecting their livelihoods, health, and quality of life.
We strive for a community of empowered women living with respect and dignity.
Our Core Values
We believe in mutual respect, equality, justice, honesty and transparency. We stand in solidarity with poor women and girls.
