The Community Hope Project (CHP) is an entirely volunteer, non-profit organization that partners with communities to foster justice, equality, opportunity and well being through human connection, creativity and empowerment. It is predicated on the notion that all people have the right to earn a decent living, educate their children, be healthy, and control the affairs of their lives. It is based on the further belief that efforts towards greater equality, education & opportunity around the world create positive effects for us all, in the form of increased social capital, reduced conflict and improved public health.

This project aims to create a model of development and health intervention that is environmentally sustainable, encourages partnership, mutuality and reciprocity within the Hill Cut Community in Freetown, Sierra Leone--our first partnership--in the following ways:

- Expand a community garden to augment the limited local food supply, and to create opportunities for building trust, cohesion and shared goals among community members.
- Fund microloans to women entrepreneurs to increase their standards of living by starting or expanding their businesses.
- Fund “start up” community-owned resources including computers, tailoring equipment, and furniture
- Create and fund local “Community Pillar” and Community Innovator” awards to inspire and reward those groups/individuals in the community who promote connection and trust within the community, and create sustainable innovations that better the health or well-being of the community.
