Cincinnati women: Maya Amoils, Jordan Baird, Carly Brightwell, Amanda Cohen, Ellyn Guttman, Megan
Levine, Christie Lindner, and Rachel Nussbaum. H.O.P.E. aims to provide the children of Langkloof, an
impoverished and AIDS-stricken village in South Africa, with food, clothing, clean water, shelter and
educational assistance. Many of the children have lost parents due to AIDS. Currently, H.O.P.E. is
building vegetable gardens and greenhouses to help the village become self-sustaining.
