They focused on the major priorities of providing water, sanitation and children’s education. They requested to partnerwith the villagers and were met with enthusiastic affirmation.

A former Village girl from Zimbabwe married a US Marine Veteran. On their first wedding anniversary, they made plans to visit her village.
Although the Marine had traveled extensively when he served his country, he had never been so moved as he was when he experienced first hand the damaging nature of the drought and hyperinflation that is impacting most vulnerable villagers. On the spot (while in Zimbabwe), they agreed that they would help change the present and future for the villagers.
Upon their return to the United States, the two spoke with friends and The Courage of HOPE Foundation was birthed. The acronym H.O.P.E. stands for 'Helping Other People Endure'. Our fervent hope is to invite you to partner with us in helping others. Please take this opportunity to donate.
