Call Me Hope
Social Issues – After her mother died from cancer in 2006, Nyla Rodgers travelled to Kenya to meet a young man whose education her mother had helped fund for years. That is the day Nyla’s work found her and the NPO Mama Hope was born.
Mama Hope works in “close partnerships with local African organizations to connect them with the resources required to transform their own communities,” and the NPO believes that “there are enough resources in the world for every human being to live healthy, happy lives. We envision a world where resources are correctly shared across the globe to provide the tools communities need to thrive.”
In an attempt to show the world how connected we all are in the battle to end poverty, the organization launched its second video in the “Stop the Pity, Unlock the Potential campaign, which aims to “tell the story of connection instead of contrast and potential instead of poverty.”
In addition, the organization says, “this is our first step to help build a global society based on hope and connection.” The video shows “the energy of Africa and the interconnectedness we share.”
“With every school we construct, well we dig, orphanage we build, there are faces and names of people who are impacted [...] When the pity stops, the potential can be unlocked.”
The organization aims to help local communities become self-sufficient by addressing problems from “food and agricultural security to women’s empowerment.”
Though Mama Hope would appreciate a monetary donation, they ask that you spread the word to your friends by donating your status on social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter which it will post to your news feed daily.
