Hope 2 One Life December Newsletter

2020 has been an unimaginable year. For many it has been one of the most challenging years of their lives. Now more than ever we want to take this opportunity to tell you how much we appreciate all of YOU!! Businesses and non-profits across the world have struggled to survive in the last 6 months. There is an overwhelming need for financial assistance for many right now. Hope 2 One Life has survived through the pandemic so far, yet we are concerned about next year. Below is a summary of our progress in 2020, thanks to all of you! 
We are so grateful for those of you who contributed to the giving Tuesday fundraiser and spaghetti dinner for the Agape Farm and Training Center. With your donations we now have 2 dormitory large huts, septic system with bathrooms and showers piped from our solar water system, a farm manager house, tent, and chairs to begin trainings (when Covid-19 lifts). A goat house and fencing were constructed, and our Boer goats moved to the land Agape Farm.
Thanks to YOU we have given two rounds of Covid-19 health and food relief to 5 very remote community groups and surrounding impoverished villages. The village health teams have distributed soap, masks, mosquito nets, hygiene training and much more....
We paid forward orders for the women's business and their handmade purses and aprons. We also did this for the Palabeck community group for their paper bead bracelets. Just like in the United States, ALL businesses are struggling immensely right now, so keeping them open and keeping an income available is just as important as it is here at home. 
We are so excited to share that two new agriculture ventures - fish ponds and grain grinders have been implemented on the Agape Farm and training center!! We are so grateful to Faith Chapel for this gift!
16 farmers were trained in Farming God’s Way and actually continued to grow abundant crops despite the pandemic! 3 leaders/trainers were trained in vegetable growing and our farm manager,
Denis attending FGW in field mentorship training. This was done in February 2020 prior to the pandemic.
Progress and partial sustainability are evident on the Agape Training Center and Farm and the IMO piggery is sustaining the farm workers’ salaries and meals. The Boer goat project was also moved to our land and has great potential.
By the grace of God one deep water well was drilled in the remote village of Kweyo, where water scarcity was huge.
Roots 2 Fruits teacher training is fully funded, and books were brought to Uganda just prior to the pandemic, by two Oregon teachers.
We revamped our website security, including our work and updates. We are attempting more social media and virtual presence, to share our news and stories of the amazing progress the Ugandans are making toward a sustainable rise out of poverty that can be carried down for generations to come!
We are so so so grateful, and words cannot express our deep gratitude for ALL of you and your faithful support! Every gift goes and long long way! Thank you for all of the volunteers who served, told a friend or colleague about us, shared our stories on social media or attended an event. We hope to gather in community and celebrate in 2021!!
May God be glorified! Peace be with you!
Hope 2 One Life is empowering widows, orphans and families in Uganda with the goal toward community restoration from war and poverty, self-independence and sustainability, while valuing each life with dignity and all persons as children of God.
