Did you know Greenville Home Builders are making a huge impact in Zambia, Africa?

Did you know that two HBA of Greenville members, along with Home Builders from around the country, are making a huge impact in Zambia, Africa? Donations from Homes for Hope are helping HOPE International come alongside the church in Zambia to form Savings and Credit Associations (SCA).

SCA’s provide a way for people to gain access to credit for emergencies or even starting a business. "If you are living on less than a few dollars a day, it is impossible to save money because you need everything you earn, and then some," Jack Nulty, Executive Director of Homes for Hope, said. "However, in 2016 with the formation of SCA’s powered by HOPE International, the impossible has been made possible and has helped more than 1,000 families loosen the grip of poverty," Nulty said.

Homes for Hope, an HBA member since 2012, raises money for HOPE International by working with Home Builders and HBAs to build new homes, the proceeds from which are transmitted to HOPE International for their charitable and micro-lending activities in a dozen countries around the world.

Homes for Hope Executive Director Jack Nulty credits Rosewood Communities, Rosewood President Mark Nyblom, and Rosewood's trade and supply partners, for answering the call for help by building several homes in the Greenville area that have benefited Homes for Hope.

You can help HOPE International fight poverty by doing what you do best, build homes. Consider taking the proceeds from one of the homes you build this year and help 1,000 families or more by providing financial services to people who really need help!  Visit for more information.
