HOCW was founded in 2010 by refugees and international volunteers who had a passion for the plight of women and children. A non-profit humanitarian organization, HOCW’s mission is to instill hope, provide opportunities, and offer support to the community of Ndejje.

HOCW’s clients include an ever-changing population of Ugandans and refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and other African nations, many of whom have experienced war, internal conflict, natural disasters, gender-based violence, and extreme poverty.
