Self sustaining solutions
We work with communities to develop long lasting practices in the areas of economic management and community health. Self-Sustainability for us means that the project does not require continual topping up of funds. As part of our model processes are put in place whereby the beneficiaries are given the skills through training and education on how they can do it on their own.
We coach and train our beneficiaries to run successful viable and independent micro businesses. From day one of running their small business the woman is generating an income that enables her to buy the next batch of stock for her on going trading. We educate by training the community in Pump Maintenance and in Sanitation and Hygiene.
Note: 100% of your donation / investment gets there and all contributions received are fully tax deductible!

There are many ways to get involved
Start a Fundraiser
A fundraiser is a great way to get involved and can be alot of fun. Here are some suggestions:
- Hold a casual clothes day at your workplace or school
- Start up a workplace giving pledge program
- Show support by ongoing sponsorship
- You personally decide to make a difference and give a once off contribution or make a commitment to making a monthly contribution.
Sponsor a Project
Consider helping by doing creative fund raising activities to:
- sponsor a Water and Sanitation, Hygiene Education project to bring safe, clean drinking water to a village of 5,000 people for $15,000
- create a Self Help Trust Group, consisting of 10 women in India so each woman can run their own small business for $1,650
- create a group, consisting of 10 women in South Africa so each woman can run their own small business for $330

Take the One Challenge
For an individual, YOU contribute the equivalent of 1 days income. It’s ‘ONE day’ out of your whole years wage/salary, this represents just 0.27% or YOU contribute just 1 hours pay per month and commit to monthly contributions for the year. It’s ‘ONE hour’ from your 160 hour working month.
For a Business, it’s giving away only 1% of your profits
Many organisations are doing this and see this as an opportunity to “give back” and an important factor to their continual success. In Australia the average daily income is equal to four month’s income of an individual living below the poverty line in India. Giving just ONE day’s income allows someONE’s life to be changed forever.
Hopes and Dreams needs support to transform the lives of more than 152,000 people who are living in the poorest areas around the globe.
Your choice to sacrifice ONE day or 1%, changes the future, not just for one person, but for their family, the wider community and the next generation.
We all have a moral and social responsibility to make the world a better place. Are YOU willing to join in our mission and take up the ONE challenge?
