October 11 is International Day of Girls

Global Hope Network's mission to bring help and hope to the hidden and hurting. In many places around the world, the hidden and hurting are women and girls. It is common to see vast disparities in men and women's access to resources and sources of income, which can make it even more difficult for women to get out of poverty.


What's for Dinner?

Do you have plans for dinner tonight? Chances are, the only part of you plan that hasn't been settled is what you'll be eating — but you don't need to be concerned about whether you'll be eating at all. 


For many people around the world, the main question is the opposite. They might not know whether they'll be able to eat tonight.


Learning and Loving a New Occupation

Didi Hara Village, Ethiopia


We’d like to introduce Dido, a 43-year-old man living in Dida Hara Village. Before he joined our Transformational Community Development (TCD) group, he had basically nothing. He was tending animals owned by another man. He was earning a small amount of money, just enough to survive.

Laying the Groundwork

Ngassa Village, Cameroon


Babalola and his Transformational Community Development (TCD) team members live in Maroua and commute to Ngassa Village for TCD activities. This will go on until they are able to put up a dwelling house on the parcel of land they have in the village and then move into the village.


Bringing Wellness to All

Helwan Village, Egypt


We had a medical convoy in Helwan Village. We had checkups for some ladies who had infections in their legs. Four of the ladies had eye infections because of hygiene issues so we also gave them medicine for the infections and some painkillers.

TCD Takes Root and Spreads

Upper Egypt Village Cluster, Egypt


This month we held trainings for the committee and new Transformational Community Development (TCD) volunteers in Adendan Village. We spent time planning for the start of the Children Development Program in the east part of the village. We divided the village into nine areas and discussed Hepatitis C analysis for 2,000 cases in Adendan.
