Hands on Hope supports the BRAVO!! educational scholarship for underprivileged students to attend higher education, in addition to helping supply needed school materials and training seminars to prepare students for entering the workforce.
Maharat is a sewing center and school established by two high-school volunteers, Maryam and Alya. Women in the village have the opportunity to learn the science of sewing and afterward can advance into their own career as seamstresses. The goal is to help women to become entrepreneurs and open their own businesses and become self-sufficient through this trade. Hands on Hope helps to provide materials and the sewing machines for graduates to start their sewing careers. This program is extremely successful and improves the lifestyle and standard of living for these women.
Hands on Hope is proud to support entrepreneurs through various projects for sustainable development. Rent a Dress is a development initiative where women have the opportunity to rent out dresses for various occasions and keep the income procured through those rentals. It is a self-sufficiency business initiative to provide a source of sustainable income for women.
One of the primary initiatives of Hands on Hope is to provide assistance where it is needed most. We collect donated supplies in order to meet peoples needs, whether that be for natural disasters, conflicts, or severe poverty. To promote education we also help supply stationary and other educational materials for schools.
