Give Hope, Fight Poverty (GHFP) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster philanthropy domestically by designing service-learning programs that engage US students & professionals with rural communities in Swaziland, Africa and work together to educate, empower and lift orphaned and vulnerable children - particularly those living in child-headed households - out of poverty.
We offer high quality schooling to children orphaned by HIV living in rural Swaziland - particularly those living in child-headed homes - to break the cycle of poverty through the only empowerment tool proven successful: education. However, there are many barriers to education for these children, so we work with local leaders to discover the challenges and develop sustainable programming to overcome them. For instance, we address healthcare, sanitation/hygiene, nutrition, and housing challenges. We offer scholarships to preschool, secondary, and university orphaned students as even public education is not free. Our programs address the holistic needs of the children, but are all geared toward keeping them healthy and happy enough to pursue the high quality education that will turn them into their country's change agents for a better future.
