Want to run for a cause? RUN FOR BECAUSE OF HOPE! Because of Hope (BOH) seeks to sustainably empower widows and orphans in Uganda. We do this through our three programs: the Beads Project, BOH Student Scholarship Program, and Agriculture Program. Since 2011, we've been able to increase income opportunities for the women we work with, offer over 200 scholarships to their children, and have seen women's crop yields increase 10 fold! JOIN US in this work by running for BOH in the SB Half Marathon or Sun Run & fundraising to empower these women and children! Visit our website or email us at

Because of Hope (BOH) was founded in 2011 by three UCSB graduates. These founders visited Uganda and quickly fell in love with the HOPE of the Ugandan women BOH now partners with.

BOH seeks to sustainably empower widows and orphans living in Uganda. In addition, BOH aims to spread compassionate global awareness within our local communities. We hope to unite people from different continents and cultures with the purpose of generating lasting solutions to the problems that arise from poverty.
