Mission: Hope Through Health was founded in the spirit of social justice to promote health as a human right. Our approach is two fold: 1. to reduce inequity in poverty settings by providing technical and financial support to community-based health initiatives 2. to establish solidarity through the development of long-term global partnershipsWe empower communities in Africa and mobilize communities in the United States to ensure that the highest standard of care is available to individuals regardless of their ability to pay. We improve health. We provide hope.
Programs: Hope through health, inc. (hth) provided financial support to association espoir pour demain - lidaw (aed-lidaw) through monthly grant allocations. The hth/aed-lidaw collaboration supports comprehensive medical and psychosocial care to approximately 1,000 aed-lidaw members living with hiv/aids in the kara region of togo, west africa, as part of the community directed hiv initiative to develop a community-based model ensuring comprehensive hiv/aids treatment to people living in poverty, empowering members and families to direct effective treatment and care at the community level.
Although, compared with other organizations working within the same field, quite small in size, Hope Through Health is one of the most efficient and effective non-profits I have seen. Thru an incredibly dedicated staff and network of volunteers, many of which have a personal relationship with those benefiting, HTH provides essential services to people affected by HIV and AIDS in a country, Togo, which is often overlooked. When I donate, or ask others to donate, to HTH I can rest assured that the money will be efficiently spend and go to those who most need it.
I am currently volunteering for Hope Through Health. I sincerely hope I can offer something of use...The reality is, HTH is doing phenomenal work, and they have a great staff (albeit minimal!). AED, the partner organization is also phenomenal, and they're working under tight constraints of resources. It's not an easy job, to say the least, but they are creating a community of assistance. They're providing something truly necessary to people here, and helping people live longer, more productive, and ultimately happier lives in my view. I would absolutely recommend that people come to volunteer here if there is a need. Kara is a lovely town, although to volunteer you need not come all the way to Togo! I would highly recommend that you do, though. I understand volunteering can actually be a drain on a nonprofit. Someone needs to assist the volunteer to understand the organization to begin with, so it can be a challenge. HTH has done very well in accommodating me and giving me the things I need to do some work.
I learned about the organization through some college friends. The depth of their dedication is phenomenal, and I always feel that my time and/or money is going directly to benefit others. I am a very happy monthly contributor, and would recommend this charity to everyone.
