Hello prospective team mate! We are so pleased that you are interested in joining our team.

Our mission at Mama Hope is to champion community-led change. We envision the emergence of a new, global approach to tackling injustice; one in which communities hold the power and resources they need to drive their own futures. We believe so strongly in our amazing partners and everything we do is for them and their communities.

How do we accomplish this? We get behind the work of community-led organizations around the world. We help to ensure that they have the freedom and the resources they need to change lives in their communities and build a better future for generations to come. We are also building a community of individuals and organizations globally to advocate for community-led development and a new normal in global development, where community voices drive the narrative and the change.

We are an international and virtual team who live all over the world in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and the USA. We value partnership, love, integrity, and transformation and put a lot of time and effort into ensuring each others’ well-being and development. We aim to ensure that everyone’s voice matters – whether you founded the organization or have just joined as an intern. We are a team that is very open to new ideas. We know we don’t have everything right. We are ever-changing, ever self-critiquing, ever looking to improve and we’re looking forward to what you have to teach us!

You’ll be at home here if…

You believe in long-term, systemic change and are willing to ride the ups and downs, joys, and frustrations of that approach.

You are open-minded and love to listen. You are willing to learn from anyone. You don’t put much credence on title or position, but on solidarity, trust and impact instead.

You are open to unconventional ideas and approaches. You are creative and brave – you don’t just follow what has always been done before.

You value relationships over results. You understand the depth and longevity of impact that is produced when people feel loved, respected, and valued.
