Thank YOU for supporting our Children’s Clothing Drive for the Emergency Clothes Closet at Douglass Elementary School. It was a huge success!
HOPE is the acronym for all of our activities, as well as, the virtue we hold dear knowing God will help us in all things.
Through the donations of expertise, materials, and funding, we help improve public health, as well as access to healthcare in the communities we serve.
We help design and implement self-sustaining programs for the improvement of social and economic opportunity.
By providing assistance to help individuals form a necessary foundation, we help others maximize their own personal development and potential.
We believe education to be the key in the development of a person and a society. We support educational programs from childhood through adulthood.
We were unable to hold this year’s Annual Benefit Garage Sale due to COVID-19, but our friends in Uganda still need our help! In July, supporters pledged to match all donations made to Gotta Have HOPE up to $30,000.
This year, it’s all about EDUCATION – benefiting student tuition and our new parent agriculture program in Mawuuki, Uganda.
Through your unbelievable generosity, $36,430 was donated to the 2020 Match Marathon, bringing our total to $66,430!
Thank YOU for your support!
Your donation made TWICE the impact!

“For the Students”
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”
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.

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.
Our dynamic, 100% volunteer workforce fuels and drives our organization, neighbors helping our neighbors in need, with family-friendly fundraising activities like our annual “garage sale”, sharing their expertise, tangible donations, and financial support. It’s truly a blessing to all involved. We hope you will join us.
