farm fest

open house celebration

sunday, july 11th | 5:30-8:30pm

16340 Dearborn Dr., Stilwell, KS 66085

Kindly RSVP by Wednesday, July 7th

While we aren’t able to hold our annual benefit garage sale this year, let’s get our herd back together!
 
Join us for an outdoor, open-house celebration on Sunday, July 11th with food, friends, and fun as we kick off Gotta Have HOPE’s July fundraising campaign “Fund the Farms” fundraiser! It’s all about coMOOOOnity this summer as we raise money to purchase dairy cows, pigs, goats, and chickens for our Uganda agriculture programs.

won't you help us

fund the farms?

This summer, Gotta Have HOPE is raising money to “Fund the Farms”. It’s all about coMOOOnity and raising funds for livestock for Ugandan agriculture programs supported by Gotta Have HOPE, including the Kiyinda-Mityana Diocese Cow Project, Y’Awaka, MWEA, and the Nayune Group.
 
At this very moment, nearly 200 families are finalizing their preparations – building sheds for animals, installing rainwater harvest systems, and upgrading their homes to support livestock. 
 
Learn more in a message from our Uganda travelers and Gotta Have HOPE supporters – watch our kickoff video below!
Through the end of July, your gift to Gotta Have HOPE will change lives and communities in rural Uganda.
 
$1,000 = One dairy cow for a family who is ready
$125 = One pig or goat for a family whose land is better suited for smaller livestock
 
Plus, a generous group of GHH donors have teamed up to match up to $50,000, meaning every gift goes TWICE as far!
 
Please consider helping us reach our $100,000 goal to support these hard-working farmers and their families.
 
Thank YOU for your support!

2021 INITIATIVES

These featured programs provide educational opportunities for the students and families of St. Joan of Arc Primary School, and members of the surrounding villages in Mawuuki, Uganda. We are working closely with our partner, St. Joan of Arc School, to continue fundraising and program development amid COVID restrictions.

“For the Students”

Y'ABAYIZI

(ya-ba-YEE-zee)

Y’Abayizi is Gotta Have HOPE Inc.’s tuition assistance program which benefits past, present, and future students of St. Joan of Arc (SJA) Primary School in Mawuuki, Uganda. Through this program, Gotta Have HOPE provides need and merit-based scholarships, allowing children from the surrounding village and beyond to attend the nationally ranked SJA Primary School. Graduates of SJA may also apply for assistance with secondary school and university tuition through Y’Abayizi as they continue their educational journeys. 

“For the Home”

Y'AWAKA

(ya-wa-KAH)

Our newest collaborative endeavor, Y’Awaka, is an Adult Education and Agriculture program designed especially for the adults in Mawuuki and other surrounding villages. This program integrates academic and agricultural education for all members of the household and progresses through topics such as reading & writing, hygiene & sanitation, cooking, current farming practices, livestock rearing, personal finance, and business & marketing based on the needs and aspirations of the family. Led by an Ugandan adult educator on staff at SJA, Y’Awaka will begin its inaugural year collaborating with 75 local families.

Thank YOU for your support!

OUR PARTNERS AT HOME

Douglass Elementary School in Kansas City, KS: Emergency Clothes Closet

Gotta Have HOPE, Inc. is proud to partner with friends at Douglass Elementary School in Kansas City, Kansas. Through donations from the Gotta Have HOPE community, we provide clothing for the Emergency Clothes Closet for students. If students arrive without socks, coats, or other necessities, the closet provides dignified support so children can focus on their education.

Thanks to the generosity of the Gotta Have HOPE community, we were able to deliver 85 boxes of children’s clothing and shoes, as well as, three racks of winter coats and jackets for the closet the first week of March — just in time for in-person learning to resume.

Monetary donations provided new clothing purchases along with a $1500 donation to school’s PTA for future needs of the students. Our sincere gratitude goes out to all who made this possible, including Cosentino’s, St. James Academy, St. Michael the Archangel, and LE Dance Studio. A special thank you to St. James Academy senior Matthew Miller who organized the drive, Display Studios for storing and delivering the donations, and more than 20 volunteers who received, sorted, and boxed clothing.
