DiscoverHope is building a family of inspired people who seek to give their greatest strengths to the world. We are transforming hundreds of families out of poverty and there are hundreds waiting, with hope in their hearts. With your help, DiscoverHope can continue building a legacy of hope for all. We welcome your contributions of time, talent, and resources to our organization.

 Help us impact more lives. Since 2008, DiscoverHope has provided 717 loans and maintained a 100% pay back rate – a true testament to the women’s sense of ownership.   We have funded over 1,800 development trainings related to business assistance, literacy, computer, and artisan skills. Through our Microcredit PLUS model, the lives of over 400 women and 1,500 family members have been permanently transformed for the better.
