AFRICA HOPE COMMUNITY
July 29, 2011
Africa Hope Community is an organization that helps African women build their lives in the Denver area. Many African women who immigrate to the United States face a lot of difficulties as they try to find resources especially educationally and financially. I know first hand how tough it can be. My mother immigrated to the United States from Ghana, West Africa and struggled to find resources, but through the assistance of friends she was able to get her education and become financially independant. I decided to get involved with Africa Hope in order to help women like my mother establish and reach their goals. Adjusting to life in a new country can be very difficult, but Africa Hope Community aims to assist women by providing resources and support. I admire how the President of Africa Hope, Francine Kanyinda, has worked tirelessly to establish this organization and reach hundreds of women in desperate need. I am proud to be a volunteer for this organization and I believe that it will continue to grow.
