Exposing Hope

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Exposing Hope, formerly Care Through Action, is changing the world's understanding of human rights violations to inspire involvement and action.  We build awareness of under-reported issues through the power of images and inspirational stories from the front lines.  Finding the dignity and humanity in situations of violence, we spotlight the human capacity for healing and hope, and we connect individuals with tangible and powerful ways to create lasting solutions at the local level.

What we do:

We support a select group of non-profit partners with distinct areas of focus, many of which have limited awareness yet provide tremendous value to the people they serve.  Through our network of journalists and non-profit partners:

· We bring light to human rights violations affecting women and children throughout the world

· We use moving images of human experience, suffering, and hope to educate people about such violations and inspire them to act

· We provide people with solutions that strengthen local communities in affected areas

Where we focus:

Our current focus is on survivors of sexual violence in the war-torn region of the North Kivu Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo.  With our local partner, HEAL Africa, we are working to construct new safe houses as well as supporting programming and staff in our current safe houses in Alimbongo and Nyamilima.  We fund literacy programs, small business skills training and swing/soap-making/bread-making training for an average of 70 new survivors that come to our houses each month.  Additionally, we provide rotating micro-credit funds for these women to start their own business.
