H.O.P.E. Word Church of Christ, located in Cincinnati, OH, helps broken, lost, sick or poor individuals develop the tools and skills they need to become self-sufficient. By assisting in building a bridge that will create connections with the private, public, government and faith communities within Cincinnati, we strive to Empower, Educate and Advocate building self-sufficiency for all people. 

Earlier this year, we received two laptops that served as a tool for young adults to help develop computer skills and complete assignments within the programs and during our mission trips abroad to Kenya. Through this donation we gained the opportunity to stay mobile in specific areas that need educational assistants onsite or offsite.  

During our visit to Kenya, we had gone to a remote village to share with youth and teens the importance of education and the capacity-building you can still achieve, even with less. While the presenter was sharing one of the students mentioned that they lacked enough writing utensils for assignments. They also mentioned the lack of laptops and computers available to the school. Within seconds of gifting the computers, his expression changed to one of gratitude! The auditorium immediately filled with an abundance of appreciation. It was amazing to hear and see the heart of giving expressed in such a humble manner. Thank you Good360 for helping us give back to our community through technology.
