be their HOPE is a grassroots, non-profit organization founded by Heather and Troy Boe. It is run entirely by volunteers who believe that they have the power and ability to make a difference in the life a child.
During the process of adopting a little boy from Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2010, Heather and Troy became acutely aware of the living conditions within that war torn and impoverished country.
The goal of their organization, be their HOPE, is to provide resources to improve the living conditions for the children of Congo, through better education, nutrition, and medical attention.
In the short time since be their HOPE has been established, they have raised over $18,000 and have been working to bring basic needs and education to the children of Kinshasa. The organization has helped the orphanage from which Heather and Troy adopted their son, to purchase a generator to ensure consistent electrical service and to become more self-sufficient. With the help of generous donors, be their HOPEhas been able to provide basic needs, including education, to many children.
In 2012, be their HOPE took on the challenge of renovating an old and dilapidated building, making it into a school. That project is nearly complete, and we are all so excited that children will be able to receive the benefit of education very soon. be their HOPE would like to continue working with the orphanage that Heather’s and Troy’s son came from, as well as continue to support the school that the organization has built to serve a greater community beyond the orphanage. In addition, the organization is working to identify other projects in Kinshasa where our efforts and support will help to create better living conditions and offer greater opportunities for the children of Congo.
Currently,be their HOPE is partnering with Wasatch Adoption Agency to sponsor children for education. Visit our SPONSOR A CHILD page to view the children that are in need of sponsorship and to see what you can do to help.
