Why Project HOPE UK?
For the people of Project HOPE UK, every waking moment is devoted to the quest for better futures for Africa’s most vulnerable children. But passion is not enough! For us, every action, every ounce of energy and every pound spent must be driven by the deepest thoughtfulness. READ MORE
Far more than a charity project, The Thoughtful Path is a way of life, a new way of thinking, and a fresh look at the way charities work with communities. It is our “flagship” project, designed to engage an entire community and enable its most vulnerable children to grow into healthy, productive adults. READ MORE
Making a positive difference in the lives of those in need is one of the most basic human instincts. Project HOPE UK celebrates your desire to help vulnerable children; we can provide the ideal platform for you to do something remarkable that will change lives forever. READ MORE
By changing nothing, nothing changes! Although some changes may be tiny, they combine to transform the lives of vulnerable children and the communities in which they live. Be inspired by keeping up to date with what’s happening to give children a better future. READ MORE
“I commend Project HOPE UK for its approach and believe it will succeed because, from the very outset, they have honoured the humanity of the people they serve, giving them control, and empowering them to do more - becoming their servants and not seeking to be their masters.” READ MORE

A famous African proverb says “It takes a whole village to raise a child”. We have a similar view when it comes to constructing our team. We have one team with many parts in the UK and South Africa, all pulling together with a passion to empower communities to improve the health and life chances of vulnerable children.

“The Thoughtful Path Munsieville is an extraordinary example of a local community and partners coming together to tackle some of the seemingly most intractable problems in one of South Africa’s most disadvantaged townships.

“I came to live in Munsieville many years ago, raising my six children in the Mshenguville squatter camp. Until a few months ago, I would get them up at 5am and send them out to look for firewood. I thought my children would not be allowed to go to school because we are foreigners, but the Thoughtful Path team helped me to enrol the children and to prepare them for school.” READ MORE
