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.

Sexual and Reproductive Health

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.
