Our Approach

HopeCore's approach is sustainable and replicable. We treat children and their mothers from conception through 18 years of life.

All programming works within existing institutions to ensure longevity of programming. We partner with the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, schools, and many others to ensure all activities are working hand in hand with other area interventions and that we do not duplicate efforts.

Our Story

HopeCore's Public Health Program launched in 2009 with the distribution of mosquito nets. In 2010, HopeCore held our first outreach event targeting women and children. The rest is history.

Throughout all programming, HopeCore empowers clients to take control of their health and that of their families through the provision of clear and context specific health information combined with accessible and free clinical service being offered through a range of community touch points.

Neighborhood Community Health Volunteers

HopeCore has developed an integrated network of neighborhood community health volunteers (NCHVs) who are crucial in supporting the broader health program.


Health Champions

An innovative program whereby HopeCore engages one teacher from each school to promote health within their school.


School-based Mobile Clinics

School-based mobile clinics are an essential component of our programming, with a goal to improve the health of children by preventing disease and detecting and treating health problems early through age appropriate health education and free clinical services.

Mothers lined up - MCH

Maternal and Child Health Workshops

The MCH workshops function through four modalities: Educate, Prevent, Treat, and Advise to address 14 child health survival technologies. 


Water and Hygiene

Connected very closely to our Health Champion program, HopeCore has installed 1,000 L clean drinking water tanks and 70 L handwashing tanks in over 200 schools.

We seek to fill gaps in SRH education and services in the community and school system. This program has many components, including SRH education in schools, providing SRH services to out-of-school youth, community outreach and sensitization, youth peer providers, and a youth center.

Pop-up clinics in area markets provide HIV testing, Blood Glucose testing, and Blood Pressure testing.
