Point Hope is a nonprofit which aids refugees in the Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana and the surrounding district.   Founded by Delilah,the host of a  nationally syndicated nightly U.S. radio program with an estimated 8 million listeners, Point of Hope provides the Buduburam community with nutritional assistance, funds for education and access to medical care.

Their programs include the following:

Agriculture:  teaching the residents of Buduburam to grow crops, providing food for their families and a source of income

Education:  funding K-12 education for students who are orphaned, destitute or whose parents are volunteering and giving to the community with no financial gain.  In addition,  the Point of Hope supports disabled students living at the Harmony Community Disabled Center.

Living Water:   fresh water now flows and electricity is available in a community which previously relied on water vendors bringing in water from a nearby but polluted lake.

Skills:  Men and women receive skill training in areas such as carpentry, computer, batik, jewelery, baking and sewing.
