Where It All Started
Supporting women and their families
through their own businesses
Hoffman Family Foundation has partnered with some amazing women in Uganda. Tami and Dave Hoffman, the founders of HFF, were introduced to this “Women’s Group” (approximately 20 ladies) back in 2014. After spending some time with the women and teaching some foundations of operating their own business, Dave was determined to give them an opportunity to see what they had learned. He gave them a small “Hand Up”. Tami would return later that year in September to see what these amazing women could do with the investment.
As promised, Tami arrived in late September and was so impressed with their results. This small group of women had started a business call ‘MUKAMA AFAAYO FUNCTION SERVICES'…. Tents and Chairs for Hire!’. They gave the Hoffman's the honor of participating in their ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open their doors for business. Just six months after opening their doors, their business doubled in size. Twenty more ladies joined the group and with their earnings they were able to purchase an additional tent.
Seeing these hard working women with their resilient spirits and the amount of confidence and stability starting their own business created within this community, HFF's Women's Empowerment Program was born.
Have You Heard of the
This Nike study states that if we were to give both a man and a woman $100 each in the same developing community, $90 of the Woman’s $100 will go back into her family and community, where as only $20-$35 of the Man’s $100 will go back into his family and community. Teaching and empowering our women is the key to help breaking their poverty cycle and transforming future generations.
Our mission is to educate and empower women who are living in poverty with earthly skills, God-confidence and God-vision necessary to create a productive business, create a healthy lifestyle, and create a secure home for themselves and their children. Power, Purpose and Provision.
EMPOWER A WOMAN AND YOU WILL EMPOWER A VILLAGE.
"She is clothed in strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future."
- Proverbs 31:25
