Who We Are

Ripples of Hope Initiative is a social impact organization providing education access for children, skills mentorship for youth and micro-loans for women in Uganda’s underserved communities. The organization was founded in 2021 as a sustainable post-covid-19 intervention to combat lack of access to education opportunities, youth unemployment and poverty in the underserved communities of Jinja. 

The organization was founded  by Eva Mutesi and Eddy Balina who mobilized the community after noticing the challenges faced by young people and women during and after the Covid-19 pandemic in the underserved communities of Jinja in Eastern Uganda. 

Our vision is to achieve a transformed community of holistically empowered and thriving young people and women.
