Phase 1 - Fences Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 Phase 5Phase 7 Phase 7





The fences and walls are the first step in this dream to bring more HOPE to Ugandans. The land is currently a field with rocks and trees. 


The perimeter fence and wall serves many necessary purposes:

  • Protects construction equipment while the clinic is being built.
  • Keeps our patients safe.
  • Prevents the buildings from being robbed or vandalized.
  • Keeps herds of grazing animals out of the compound.
Can you help us build it?

Here’s how you can help Build Hope:

1) Buy a brick for $25.  Or two.  Or 6. Or a Bundle for $250.  This is a huge undertaking, but we can do it together--brick by brick.   

2) Tell your friends.  Tweet, post, email, shout really loud . . . we need everyone to share our affiliate link.  We need to sell around 18,000 of these to get the entire job done.   

3) Shop.  No, really.  The catch is that you have to do it through the Pure Charity website's online partners (like GAP, Target, J. Crew & Apple).  They will donate a percentage to your Online Giving Fund which then you pass on to this project. Click here for more info on how you can Shop Online and Earn Dollars for Giving.

ABOUT SOLE HOPE?

Sole Hope (established 2010) is a non-profit organization with a focused effort in Uganda to battle the problem of jiggers. Jiggers are small sand fleas that burrow into the bare feet of thousands of Ugandan children who often live their lives without adequate footwear and a misconception about the cause of jiggers. The result is infection, gangrene, paralysis, and occasionally amputation and even death. 

Sole Hope’s mission is “Offering HOPE, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs, and medical relief.“

Asher (the founder) and Dru Collie (executive director) and their six children have been living in Jinja, Uganda serving local children along with their volunteers and team of workers for more than 2 years.  Sole Hope provides:

1) Closed-toe shoes to children in Uganda to protect their feet from jiggers

2) Education of preventions and treatments for children and their care givers

3) Medical care – removing jiggers from children's feet, treating the wounds, testing for HIV, Typhoid, Malaria, and other diseases

4) Jobs to men and women in Uganda – teaching the trade of shoe-making and providing employments in the local communities
