Invest in Locally-Led Development for Sustainable Change

Since 2008, MAMA HOPE, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has been a beacon for accelerating the growth of early-stage locally-led grassroots organizations worldwide. Through your support over the years, we’ve managed to raise $2,600,905 and we cannot thank you enough for this feat.

Why Donate?

  • Impact at the Roots: Your contribution directly supports early-stage locally-led organizations working in underserved communities - who lack access to vital resources such as healthcare, education, proper hygiene, and opportunities in the form of equitable employment, and youth engagement programs.
  • Systems Strengthening: Supporting our Localization Development Accelerator (LDA) program increases the visibility, organizational, and technical skills of our locally-led partner organizations. It also creates a strong foundation for the organization's growth, and self-reliance; as well as increases trust, and funding from donors.

Campaign Goal:

Your contribution towards raising $30,000 annually will support one (1) locally-led partner to take part in the four (4) year LDA program, catering to onboarding partners, leadership training, curriculum development, expert trainers, and advocacy for community-led solutions.

How to Create Impact:

Every contribution counts! Join us in accelerating locally-led development growth, shifting power dynamics, challenging stereotypes for community-driven development, and building the long-term success of scalable models utilizing local knowledge and resources.

Thank You for Making a Difference!

Your generous contribution to the Localization Development Accelerator (LDA) Program is invaluable! Look out for a confirmation email soon.
