Give Hope, Fight Poverty's (GHFP) mission is to foster philanthropy domestically by designing service-learning programs that engage US students with communities abroad and work together to educate, empower and lift orphaned and vulnerable children out of poverty.
GHFP is a 501c3 tax-deductible nonprofit organization.

Orphan Education Sponsorship!

In Swaziland, education is not free.

In fact, it is about $1 per day to go to school and an additional $100 for school uniforms, supplies, and shoes ($450 total).  In 2007 we met a group of orphaned children who were being kicked out of school due to the lack of funding and pledged to raise money for their school fees.  Today, you can make a contribution to keep them in school - no amount is too small! Because education is proven to be the most successful way out of poverty (Half the Sky, Nicholas Kristof 2009), these children need schooling to ensure a brighter future.

*You can make donations in multiples of $25 on our website through PayPal:

New Board Member!

Fikeveni Dlamini

Fiks was born and raised in the Kingdom of Swaziland and currently resides in Lafayette, IN.  He has been helping with GHFP programs long before it's official conception as Annie met Prince Fiks in Swaziland back in 2008! He has delivered crucial advice in the past 4 years suggesting ways to implement difficult programs and networking for us to meet local people who have been able to facilitate our mission. 

Fiks often, in the typical Swazi manner, is too humble pertaining to the huge impact of his efforts.  His knowledge of the social aspects of his people has helped us interact in ways that are culturally acceptable.  We often bring an idea to Fiks only to have it built on and expanded due to his knowledge of what is feasible on the ground in Swaziland.  We are forever grateful for his time, knowledge and passion to help us help the orphaned and vulnerable children in his Kingdom.
