WeSeeHope is proud to share stories from the children we support.

STORIES LIBRARY

In the 18 years since our own story began, we have heard countless stories from the children, young people and communities in Southern and Eastern Africa that we’ve had the privilege of working with. These personal accounts have shown us extraordinary strength and human spirit in the face of difficult, and at times seemingly insurmountable, challenges.

 

We know that changed lives often go on to change many more lives themselves and by sharing the stories yourself, you can help this ripple effect go even further.
