In 2009 the original founders of Women of Hope International felt that the complex situations of women affected by disability in Sierra Leone are quite similar to that of women with disabilities all over the developing world. While Women of Hope gets requests for partnership in multiple countries each month, until now we have waited to expand our efforts. We’re excited to report that we are in the beginning stages of assessing partnerships with a church ministry engaging the Dalites (the untouchables) in Andhra Pradesh, Southern India, as well as another church ministry reaching women affected by disabilities in Zimbabwe. Both of these ministries have sought us out for support, consulting and training resources to further help them in facilitating wholistic transformation amongst women affected by disability.
It is through His grace we have seen such significant transformation in women affected by disability in Sierra Leone, and now we are looking forward to the work He has prepared for us as we move forward. Will you join with us in making this vision a reality and Advance Hope with us?!

“I believe that Women of Hope can help address this global need because they have developed a strategy that addresses the whole need of an individual: socially, emotionally, physically, economically and in every way. And they’re willing to take the time to work with the community until the life is transformed. There are very few organizations with the persistence, the strategy, the vision, the plan to do the work that’s being done by Women of Hope.”
