The referendum, CHANGE and #MadeWithHope!


Are you #voteleave or #votestay ?

It’s the biggest topic of conversation around at the moment! The EU referendum, which will take place on Thursday 23rd of June, has caused massive debate surrounding whether or not Britain should leave the European Union.

Change is the focus for many of the arguments within this debate. Will Britain change for the better or worse if #Brexit is the outcome? Overall, it is fair to say that much of this is based on speculation, as no one really knows. Despite this, change is inevitable in one way or another as a result of this referendum.

Here at Made With Hope we have a continuous focus on change. This is clearly shown through the amazing changes we have made to the lives of the amazing children in the orphanage which we, with the help of people just like you, raised the funds to build. We are committed to continuing this vital work to improve the lives of others, such as through our project which is aimed at building a secondary school for the children we work with in Tanzania.

Achieving this goal will undeniably change the children’s lives immensely. After all, education is a key driving force for change. It will provide the children with more opportunities and a brighter future.

Big change happens every time people donate and get involved with Made With Hope’s wonderful cause!

Whilst considering the changes which we can encourage or prevent, through the use of our vote this Thursday, it is also incredibly important that we take the time to think about the change we have the ability to make for the good of others.

Donating or getting involved in volunteering with us is a way you can be sure you’ve made a good decision! If you’d like to find out more please visit our website by clicking the link below.

Among all the uncertainty, one thing is for sure- Made With Help need your support to change the lives of the wonderful children which we work with.

Volunteers’ Week 2016


This week, we’re celebrating the often unrecognized, amazing work of volunteers!

Volunteers’ Week is an annual event which takes place at the start of June,  celebrating the contribution made by millions of volunteers across the UK.

Made With Hope is a fantastic charity to volunteer for. They always appreciate our work which makes it feel even more worthwhile, on top of the amazing knowledge that our work is helping to fight against poverty in Africa!

downloadI am currently at university, and I love volunteering as it is a way to switch off from the stress of studying, whilst also contributing in a positive way. I find blogging to be a great way to volunteer for me as I can do it anytime and anyplace.

A recent survey showed that UK charitable organisations have doubled their supporters on through the use of social media. As a small local charity, social media is incredibly important to us to gain a wider following and raise money for our fantastic work. This is a great way to get involved with voluntary work, as many people think they would struggle to fit it in.

Volunteers Week this year is running at the same time as the BBC’s Do Something Great! season of programmes, which are a fantastic opportunity for us all to raise the profile of volunteering and celebrate volunteering in all its forms.
