About MMH Hope
Mama Makeka House of Hope (MMH Hope) was established in 2002 in memory of Mama Makeka Rebecca. Throughout her life, Mama Makeka believed that there was always room for other people around her table and in her life. MMH Hope has adopted her motto as our own: “There is always room for one more”. It is largely this generosity of hers that inspires us, but we are also inspired by the Anabaptist principles by which she lived in the context of the Frères Mennonites Community in which she lived and ministered.
Mama Makeka House of Hope is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) committed to promoting, advocating, and funding initiatives related to Global Health, Peacebuilding, Education, and Leadership Development, focusing on rural and professional communities in the DR Congo.
Mama Makeka House of Hope envisions bringing hope, hospitality, nurture, faith, and leadership empowerment to communities and individuals who suffer from lack of health and educational opportunities and from repression, violence, and conflict.
Mama Makeka House of Hope is guided by values rooted in African Ubuntu and Anabaptist traditions intended to integrate intellectual, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual dimensions of persons and communities, including respect for people diversity and environment, compassion for the suffering, integrity, honesty, trustworthiness, authenticity, excellence, peace, and justice.
