Hope Library Project

Why Hope Library

We chose " Hope" Because Hope represents Optimism. We see the Optimism in the WILL AND DETERMINATION of the Nuba People to be free and prosperous. Prosperity is possible if the people have the knowledge to attain Economic Freedom. Hope Library represents that Possibility.

We want to use the library as a conduit for building connected communities through face-to-face learning and interaction. By building the Hope Library we can run volunteer led reading and writing classes as well as inititives focused on girl education, and female empowerment because women are disseminators of knowledge. Where women succeed, everyone succeeds

GIFT IN A WILL

For over 30 years, the people of the Nuba Mountains of Sudan have experienced immense suffering brought on by racial injustice evident in the Arabisation practices of the Sudanese government on the Nuba people. The government of Sudan has committed genocidal crimes and ethnic cleansing against the Nuba people. Schools have been decimated, swaths of homes, farmland and livelihoods bombed and turned into ashes. Women and children have endured the indignation of mass rapes, abduction and forced marriages, slavery and extra judicial killings of innocent civilians.

One In Four is founded on the belief that people from all works of life deserve to live a life of dignity, Freedom and to enjoy their human rights as is enshrined in the Human Rights charter.

By Choosing to gift us in your WILL, One In Four will continue the work of rebuilding the Nuba Mountains and refugee communities from scratch through education, capacity building programs and economic empowerment initiatives in marginalised communities in Sudan to uplift them from a life of absolute poverty and indignity

One In Four appreciates all gifts large or small with immeasurable gratitude. Through your thoughtfulness, you support our vision to make accessible knowledge to all who seek. We are committed to eradicating poverty by building a future where all children can read and write.

We’re here to answer any questions you may have about our work and including us in your Will. Please contact us by sending us an email at enquiries@oneinfourchildren.org


WORKPLACE GIVING

Donate Funds to Us

Through our Education program we support the rebuilding of schools through donating school books and school materials, construction of school and public libraries in the Nuba Moutains and East African, as well as facilitating community based programs for children and women that lay the foundation of our capacity building programs.

Capacity building programs are purposefully designed to not only teach literacy but to empower the community through health and wellbeing programs, entrepreneurship and life skills based practices that allow us to create safe, self sustaining and thriving communities in the Nuba Mountains and East Africa.
