Very touching to hear that a former HOPE Intern, and the neice of our own Mary Hagerty-Erhsam, Ms. Marybeth Finegan, has just launched her own nonprofit organization to serve the youth of South Africa.
And this is how we here at Operation HOPE choose to recognize and serve the legacy of Nelson Mandela and the countless other freedom fighters from the Aparthied movement — by getting a new generation 'back to work,' for others.
Bravo to Marybeth, who was a founding member of our HOPE FILE Program, and bravo to Mary Erhsam. You are the change we want to see in our world.
John Hope Bryant, on behalf of the Operation HOPE family.
