It's simple. We have two missions:
1. To help children living in poverty in Africa by providing them with shelter, education, food and clean water.
2. Put the trust back into charity to make you feel happy about where exactly your donation is going - 100% donations to our projects.
Give the developing world vital resources they need to help them get out of poverty, such as orphanages, schools and clean water supplies.
Keep your donations completely separate from our running costs to guarantee 100% of your donation goes to our projects.
“I set up Made With Hope because I wanted to inspire other people to help people children living in poverty – and that we were a charity that you could trust. I think it’s possible we can end poverty in our lifetime but only if everybody works together. So let’s join forces and start helping by donating to one of our projects today.”
At the age of 23, Eleanor founded Made With Hope in 2013 in an attempt to help people in poverty in Africa – she couldn’t understand why there were still people living without enough food, water and education in the 21st Century. She felt there was a real need for the public to trust charity again and wanted donors to feel comfortable about exactly where their donations were going, which gave birth to the 100% Donation Prophecy. Eleanor manages the day-to-day running of the charity and is constantly looking for ways to grow Made With Hope so that we can help as many people as possible.
Where you’ll find Eleanor: You will often find her juggling the many tasks of running a charity, whilst also daydreaming of being in Tanzania as she cooks delicious food in her kitchen.
“After visiting the orphanage in Tanzania, I can now see the opportunities for the children to develop and change their future through love, care and education that I am able to help support.”
Barbara utilises her bubbly and friendly personality to inspire people to get involved in helping people living in much worse conditions than we do. She puts her efforts into fundraising in her local communities, grabbing any opportunity that presents itself to share the story of the children Made With Hope help. Barbara is a lover of crafts and organises weekly craft afternoons at her house for the local community to enjoy making things to sell for our projects. If you’d like to get involved in making things for our projects, please email her on email@example.com.
Where you’ll find Barbara: You will often find her in the gym changing room asking people if they’d like to buy one of the many Christmas Puddings she and her friends have knitted for our projects.
“After visiting Tanzania for the first time in 2013 it struck me how happy the local people were regardless of their circumstances. Such people deserve a chance at a better future and by working with Made With Hope I can actively see the difference I am making.”

The friendly grassroots attitude of MWH means that it is an enjoyable charity to volunteer for, I feel valued, I know I am being put to good use and Eleanor is a wonderful person to work with!”

I’ve known Eleanor for some time now, and have always been completely inspired by her enthusiasm. It’s a privilege to be a part of the charity, and I hope that I’ll also be able to inspire others to help children living in poverty in Africa.”
