Who we are
We are a global community working together to provide SELF-DEFENSE, JOB TRAINING, and EDUCATION to women and girls around the world.
A note from our founder…
Every heart has a story. My whole world fell apart in 2009, and I felt broken and alone when I became a single mother, and I had the faces of my three little boys looking up at me. That’s when a friend came alongside me, trained me in a job that allowed me to provide for my children, and through her pouring into my life she gave me the gift of HOPE.
Several years later, I was able to listen to the stories of women and girls while traveling in Kenya and India. SheHopes was born out of those stories. Too many of our sisters around the world have been victims of oppression, violence, inadequate education, and lack of vocational training. Their only crime was being born a girl. The heart of SheHopes is to bring them life, light, and hope. We are currently working in Kenya, India, and Rwanda. Our goal is to give these women and girls the tools they need to protect themselves in dangerous situations, to learn freely, and create a life where they can support themselves and their families financially. It’s not about giving handouts – it’s about cultivating opportunities to save and change lives.
None of this is possible without hope. Through providing them a safe haven from violence, giving them empowerment through job opportunities, and breaking the poverty cycle through education, we can ignite a spark of hope in their hearts. Who knows? The impact of this life-changing fire of hope just might change the world.
