(Please read the article “About Us” to learn more about Women of Hope.)


Women of Hope is a ministry of Healing Hands that seeks to strengthen women around the world through education, business training, and microfinance. Our work is accomplished by our international staff in countries like Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Ghana, and Haiti. Our Women of Hope coordinators host trainings, and support and encourage the women they work with.

We are always overwhelmed by the ripple impact of workshops and businesses. Time and time again, we see that when these women are empowered and earning an income, they send their children to school, share their new knowledge with others, and serve their communities. We truly believe that when women are empowered to dream, communities thrive.

Women of Hope is a program of Healing Hands International. Our mission is to aid, equip, and empower those in need around the world in the name of Jesus Christ so they might experience God’s healing grace through programs like clean water, agriculture workshops, women entrepreneurship, disaster relief, and more.
