About Harriet

When a nearly fatal car accident took Harriet Walude's left leg she worried that she would be unable to work and generate an income. Despite her accident, however, Harriet's positive outlook and entrepreneurial skills have helped her empower and mobilize her community. In 2010, Harriet and a collective of 10 women founded House of Hope. Through the simple and practical skill of paper bead making, Harriet and the others are teaching and mentoring young pregnant girls in particular within their community who need emotional support and a way to make an economic contribution to their households. As Harriet will explain, the motive behind the organization stems from the fact that the women of House of Hope are mothers and would like to be mothers for the nation. For the small cost of supplies, Harriet and the women of House of Hope are providing skills, empowerment and a method of income to vulnerable youth and young mothers.
