Behind this transformative initiative were not only dedicated volunteers but a vast network of contributors who believed in the project’s mission. The project was funded entirely through a crowdfunding campaign on social media platforms, demonstrating the potential of the internet to mobilize resources and make a real-world impact.

A team of 36 volunteers, augmented by the support of 8 community translators, engaged in various projects throughout the day. From Mentoring Sessions to Health Screening, Bags Distribution, DorcasBox (a clothing initiative), and the 5loaves Food Stand, every aspect of the day was made possible through online contributions.

The impact of these collective efforts was monumental. The mentoring sessions touched the lives of 220 pupils, while over 200 adults benefited from crucial health screenings. DorcasBox, a novel clothing project, attracted more than 300 adults seeking fairly used clothes and shoes. Captain Larry’s ( A member of Hope Journey Community WhatsApp group) contribution of over 150 Croc shoes, made possible by online support, added an extra layer of joy to the event, reaching lower primary and kindergarten children who did not receive Hope Bags.

Social media emerged not only as a fundraising tool but as a platform for gratitude and acknowledgment. Special appreciation was extended to donors, Friends of Hope Journey, associates, and the Operations Team for their unwavering commitment and support. The Board of Trustees, recognized as the backbone of the organization, played a crucial role in providing guidance and experience.

Individuals who contributed to the crowdfunding campaign for specific aspects of the project, such as food, stationery, and transportation, were celebrated for their personalized impact.

Hope Journey’s Xmas in a Village project showcases the incredible potential of social media to create positive change. The project not only brought joy to the Ada community but also inspires a new narrative—where the internet becomes a force for good, connecting hearts and resources to make a lasting impact on the world.
