Working primarily in the Lubombo region of Swaziland and in several districts of Sri Lanka our development activities focus on water and sanitation, emergency housing and food relief, sustaining livelihoods and empowerment training.
The approach to our work is culturally appropriate, encouraging community participation and leadership wherever possible and developing sustainable outcomes for individual families and small communities in these regions.
Training programs are run for community development workers in each community. These programs aim to lead and motivate transformational development from within. Our other programs include Operation Sister Act (which focuses on girl’s sanitary health), women’s empowerment groups and youth programs that encourage HIV testing and minimise the stigmatisation associated with HIV/AIDS.
Operation Hope (through our in country partners) regularly meet with individual families and communities to discuss their needs and utilise their strengths and assets to help them plan for a more sustainable future.
