The $1 Campaign
The $1.00 Campaign is a simple fundraising campaign that allows everyone to get involved by donating just $1 and become partners in spreading hope to the hopeless children.
We believe that you, like most people, are interested in making a positive impact on the world. The $1 Campaign allows you to easily get involved in bringing hope to the hopeless children. By giving a dollar and asking others to do the same, you become a direct partner with Fields of Hope and join the process of restoring lives.
You are the key to making this happen! By joining this campaign and sharing it with others, you help us expand our reach. The more people who get involved, the easier it becomes to raise money and spread hope to the hopeless.
What is it?
Countless women and children in Africa are living in some of the deepest poverty imaginable – many of them living on less than a dollar a day. Women all across Africa resort to begging or prostitution in order to survive and feed their children. They are stuck in cycles of poverty, prostitution and despair.
The $1 Campaign is an answer to this. By joining, you’re agreeing that it’s not fair for these families to live this way. You’re becoming their partner and helping them start a new life. Each and every dollar donated brings hope to women and children in Africa.
How will the Money be used?
Our goal for this campaign is to raise a million dollars to start Community Micro Finance Empowerment Scheme. It’s a village-level microfinance program that offers small collateral-free loans and business training to rural women in Africa to start income-generating businesses. The loan is repayable without interest and is extended to a new group and the cycle continues. It promotes women’s economic participation which produces a ripple effect on women and their communities. The women form themselves in a hub of 10 groups each and are offered training and check and balances of accountability.

They donate a dollar and then nominate five more people. And on it goes.
This can happen on social media by tagging your friends, it could happen at your workplace by sharing it with your coworkers, it could happen in your small group, your church, your book club…really, this campaign can be done anywhere!
