Ignite Hope Program

Civic Engagement through Volunteerism and Social Justice Advocacy Through the Ignite Hope Program, young people through volunteering tackle a wide range of civic and societal objectives.

  • The program acts to encourage young people to become active citizens and agents of positive change for communities, thus passionately pursuing purpose.
  • Volunteering provides a sense of purpose to the youth. It helps youth to find new meaning and direction in their lives by helping others. It adds meaning to their lives and helps them to shift from seeing themselves as victims to overcomers and innovative problem-solvers, boosting their self-esteem and self-worth.
  • It has a role in providing developmental opportunities to young people including pathways to education, training, and work.
  • Through volunteering the youth also learn critical life skills like
    communication, fundraising, teamwork, conflict resolution, and project planning to mention a few.
  • Volunteering contributes to an inclusive, committed, and tolerant society. Volunteering fosters a culture of citizenship among youth, in particular, an emerging focus on empathy and global consciousness as key elements.
  • Volunteering helps the youth to have a sense of belonging and community, learn new skills, advance their career, and even feel happier and healthier.
  • Volunteering helps counteract the effects of stress, anger, and
    anxiety. The social contact aspect of helping and working with others can have a profound effect on overall psychological
    well-being. Nothing relieves stress better than a meaningful
    connection to another person.

The focus areas for Ignite Hope include:

■ Blood donations/drives.
■ Girl empowerment (see more under Ignite Girls Program)
■ Assisting children who are homeless in collaboration with the
Street Kitchen Organization.
■ Ensuring children receive high-quality education: Our stationary fundraising campaigns seek to make it possible for all children, including those from underprivileged and rural or peri-urban regions, to attend school.
■ Reduced disparities: efforts that support disability equality and uphold the rights of those with disabilities.

■ Collaborating with other organisations to improve the lives of marginalised populations, such as Miracle Missions (community development organisation), Mkundi Foundation (disability rights advocacy organisation), and Topodzi Foundation (women’s rights organisation).
■ Visits to elderly and pediatric facilities including Tariro House
of Hope and Kudakwashe Children’s Home Cleanup campaigns
■ Joining the relief teams in response to natural disasters like the Cyclone Idai disaster.
