Developing Potential • Transforming Communities • Overcoming Poverty

More than a trillion dollars in aid has been poured into Africa in the last 50 years. And yet, extreme poverty remains one of the greatest challenges the continent faces. So what went wrong? With the focus primarily on things like infrastructure, mass feeding programs, and large-scale development, what’s been forgotten is the people.

Don’t get us wrong, that type of aid funding is vitally important and still has its place. But now more than ever, it is time for us to invest in the development of people to see an end to extreme poverty. While there remains great value in digging wells, constructing roads, and establishing healthcare programs, we must not forget that Africa’s greatest resource is her people.

At Hope Africa Collective, we aim to lead the charge in investing into the lives of people. Through holistic personal development, we equip individuals to build better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

As committed and passionate people grow in their own personal capacity — in their skills, knowledge, and understanding — widespread community transformation always occurs. We empower these young leaders to spark and sustain change in their communities.

The scale of our dreams at Hope Africa Collective is huge. We aim to see a world without extreme poverty. That big dream will be accomplished as we invest in holistic individual development, equipping Africans to be a catalyst of change in their communities. This is the power of investing in the one, to influence the many.
