Hope Art is focused on uplifting others through caring for orphans, creating jobs, and designing beautiful uplifting products. Women in Hope Church Mongu, Zambia and in Hope Church Wilderness Heights, South Africa, make beautiful handcrafted products and through the income these ladies receive, they are uplifted out of poverty. 100% of Hope Art’s profits are then invested in caring for orphans in Western Zambia.
Hope Art started in July 2009, when the need to help orphans in Western Zambia became apparent. A group of impoverished and mainly HIV positive Zambian widows came together to uplift local orphans and rise above their own circumstances through creating beautiful, hand-made paper beads. Hope Art has grown and expanded beyond paper beads to fashion bags and stuffed animals, hand stitched from socks. In August 2016, Hope Art launched a second location in South Africa. Most of the Hope Art artists are the sole providers for their families and through earning an income now, their lives have changed dramatically with a new sense of self-worth and purpose.
To date, Hope Art has been able to invest over three million Rand into the Zambia Project providing clean drinking water, food, shelter, education, and healthcare to these children. Many orphans are now being cared for and their extended families uplifted, thereby benefiting the community as a whole.

The artists who create beautiful jewelry and crafts for Hope Art are also beautiful themselves! They are passionate about going to work not only for the chance to care for their families but in that they are supporting the orphans at the Hope Church Orphanage in Zambia.
