Who We Are

Hope Community Action (HCA) Africa is a non-governmental organization with mission to equip community based teams for effective ministry through joint prayer, training and providing needed resources. HCA works in partnership with local Churches and community leaders to identify committed ministry volunteers, who eventually form community based teams. We then work with these teams to reach out to the much larger and diverse community.

Our Inspiration

Our ministry is founded on five inspirational scriptures:

  1. Numbers 20:1-13. Although God still took Moses to heaven, he showed He had been angry at Moses’ failure to carefully observe the instruction He had given him. Moses could not be allowed to enter the Promised Land.
  2. 1 Samuel 2:12-4:22. When Eli was the High Priest, his sons were rebellious and very disrespectful to God. They gave in to their shameful greed and sin that God had to also judge their father for ignoring to correct them. Eli seemed to have treasured his sons more than helping them obey and fear God. Eventually he lost them to war and equally died when the news reached him.
  3. 1 Samuel 8. Prophet Samuel was a very respectable prophet but his sons did not follow their father’s example of unreserved obedience to God. Their ungodliness was one of the reasons the Israelites dwelt on to demand for their own king like the gentile nations. 
  4. 2 Samuel 11-22. There was transcendent peace in King David’s family until he sinned against God by committing adultery, scheming with intention to hurt others, murder and telling lies in attempt to conceal his sin. As a result his family became so chaotic and uncontrollable that even one of his sons successfully captured power from him and attempted to eliminate him.
  5. Deuteronomy 6:1-9. God commanded the Israelites to obey Him and instruct their children in righteousness.

Philosophy

“It is Christ’s revolutionary love that Africa needs to bring radically new relationships – between clans, tribes, nations, races, political parties and ideologies. It alone can cure economic exploitations, rampant corruption, unjust laws and hostility between religious denominations.” Bishop Festo Kivengere (1988)

It is important to help people make choices that bring hope and restoration to a society marred with conflict, injustices and all forms of deprivation for centuries. A step-by-step review of human behavior, conflict, resolution, outcomes and God’s interaction with people from creation to-date can help individuals, groups or community to re-evaluate their position and consider undertaking a recovery process that leads to forgiveness and healing. This will bring peace in families, communities and entire nations at large.
It’s revolutionary love that makes our hearts burn with eagerness to help those in difficult conditions, and to help others find grace for a new reconciled life with long lasting healing of relationships. That will bring hope and lead to impressive transformation. Revolutionary love can move boys and girls from streets back to school; to working with their hands to sustain themselves and also be able to help others who are needy.
