Our Story

The Hope For Us Charity is a non-profit organization based in Texas. The charity has created a goal which aims to help children and the elderly with a program we called (HESI). HESI stands for Healthcare, Education, Sustainability and Injustices. The charity was started by Omolola Adegoke back in 2011 while still a sophomore in High School, and it was inspired by a touching experience she had one year. After talking to her cousins from Nigeria, she realized how privileged countries, like the United States take many things for granted. She felt she was obligated to “her people” back home, and all over Africa that do not have the same opportunity as her. So she decided to make a change and that started with changing the way life is in Africa. By taking this initiative and starting her charity. She decided the name of the charity needed to show there was still hope in the world which is why “Hope For Us” in the name means there is still hope for the world. We have seen many situations in which people were treated unfairly and were not given an opportunity to have an education or access to health care. We see this happening in communities in Africa all the time. While most people tend to ignore situations and challenges where someone does not have the same opportunity, we took proactive action with “The Hope for Us Charity.” The purpose of the charity is to start changing the basic problems in African communities for the better. As privileged Africans ourselves, we feel it is our obligation to try and improve the African community. Not only as Africans but also humans we want to respond and try to make the world better and equal place to live.
