Who We Are

Our Mission

Wings of Hope for Africa is committed to empowering families and communities, fostering self-sufficiency, and alleviating poverty in East Africa and Canada. We believe in the potential of every individual to thrive when given the right resources and opportunities. Our mission is to provide these resources and opportunities, from essential school supplies to income-generating projects, to the most vulnerable populations.

Our Vision

Our vision is a world where every family, regardless of their geographical location or socioeconomic status, has access to basic needs, education, and opportunities for economic growth. We envision communities where poverty is eradicated, and self-sufficiency is promoted through sustainable agriculture and small business activities.

Our Values

At the Wings of Hope for Africa Foundation we value sustainability and community empowerment. We are using our privilege in a G7 country to support and empower impoverished communities through our initiatives. Our goal is to collaborate with communities in need to make lasting, positive impacts that enable self-sufficiency. We believe that all people deserve equal opportunity and that is why we choose to serve our mission against poverty with humility, integrity, and compassion.
