Hope Home & Rescue

Nikki, blogger at One Tiny Starfish, recently blogged about Hope Home, for abused girls in Kampala, Uganda. Besides being a sponsor, Nikki is the designer for the new blog devoted to Hope Home & Rescue Center for Girls.

From the blog's Who Are We? posting on September 28:

Hope Home and Rescue Center is being created out of the urgent need to provide safe living accommodations to girl students who are attending Christian Upliftment Nursery and Primary School.

Our mission is to provide a safe living space to girls who are being abused and/or are at risk of being trafficked. Our focus is to help rehabilitate each girl to enable them to continue their education. We believe each girl has the opportunity to accomplish her dreams only if she is nurtured, loved, and free from any and all forms of abuse.


Besides having clearly outlined goals for how they plan to spend the money raised, there's also a donation one-to-one match in place until November 1, up to a grand total of $1000. Through the online shop, you can purchase an outfit for one of the girls for $4.65 or underwear and sandals for $3.45.

I encourage you to look around the blog, see the photos of the girls, and, if at all possible, give a donation.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” — Leo Buscaglia
