Dear Family and Friends,
We were honored to host Bringing Hope to the Family founder Faith Kunihira’s return to the USA during the month of May. Highlights of her visit included events in Nashville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Calabasas. (See photos below). All of these events nurtured existing partnerships, which have grown over the years, and fostered new donors, many who have chosen to walk alongside us with recurring monthly donations.
I am also proud to acknowledge our volunteers, advisory board, and board members who donated their time, talents, and resources in making Faith’s visit a resounding success.
This year marks 22 years since the inception of the Bringing Hope to the Family organization in Uganda. Faith, her staff, and many volunteers have all done an incredible job over the years expanding their outreach while strengthening programs and services to help the most vulnerable children in the Village of Kaihura. We at Bringing Hope to the Family USA celebrate our partnership and continue to offer hope and support.
Finally, we are extremely excited to announce that the BHTFUSA team will travel to Uganda for our annual trip in early July. This year, we are pleased to be accompanied by a few first-time volunteers, and our steadfast alumnae will also be part of this journey. Our busy schedule includes the annual Building Women and Men 3-day conference which will take place in Kaihura. Our New Hope Vocational Institute students will partake in workshops that include how to start a business, financial stability, family planning, and so much more. In addition, with the direction of our local staff, a medical and mosquito net outreach is planned. Lastly, one of our volunteers will be mentoring recent university graduates on how to create and write a resume and how to prepare for interviews and next steps.
We will continue to keep everyone updated on all of our activities via social media, so follow along with us (links below). Once again, thank you wholeheartedly for being a part of our BHTFUSA family. We are looking forward to much more in the coming months.
Executive Director, BHTFUSA
