Mountains of Hope Childrens Ministries
  • Kampala, Uganda
Organization Description
Mountains of Hope Children’s Ministries (MOH) is a non-profit NGO working in Mpigi, Uganda to empower marginalized rural communities regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or faith. The organization addresses the basic needs of vulnerable children and their communities, including healthy food, maternal health, sustainable farming and financial trainings as well as distribution of water filters, school scholarships and more. By making each of these resources available, Mountains of Hope strives to expand access to jobs, education, healthy food, and healthcare to comprehensively improve the lives of each person they work with.

One prominent piece of the work Mountains of Hope did with past US interns was Comprehensive and Sustainable Menstruation Management Trainings. In order to address the multifaceted issues surrounding menstruation, Mountains of Hope created a menstruation management and pad-making training. The 10 week concentration on menstrual health was funded by Nourish-UNC, a branch of the nonprofit organization from the United States, Nourish international. The Mountains of Hope staff, in partnership with four interns from Nourish-UNC, hosted trainings at 11 community centers for over 600 individuals.The Comprehensive and Sustainable Menstruation Management training was strategically called to respond to the challenges girls face during their menstruation.

Another project that we did with another group of Interns was Nutrition Management training, food preparations and establishment of vegetable gardens to breast feeding and lactating mothers in 9 communities around Mpigi District in central Uganda
