A Glimmer of Hope is an international foundation that is having a significant impact on rural communities in Ethiopia and at-risk youth in inner cities.
In Ethiopia, the foundation works in small, isolated communities through indigenous self-help organizations which provide: clean, accessible water; schools and classrooms; health care; agricultural support including veterinary clinics and irrigation; and, emergency relief in crisis situations.
Since its launch in 2001, A Glimmer of Hope has helped approximately two million rural Ethiopians to help themselves prompting the former US Ambassador to Ethiopia Tibor Nagy to describe its model as “the most effective approach to private assistance I have seen.”
A Glimmer of Hope’s mission is:
To spread love and humanity to beings who suffer unnecessarily,
To shine the light of awareness on exclusion and pain,
And, to offer A Glimmer of Hope to those who need one.
