House of Hope
Welcome to the House of Hope!
Hope is a feeling that can be the difference between life and death.
The House of Hope focuses its projects on Domestic Violence & Family Abuse and Children's Rights & Welfare. Families are the building blocks of communities and deserve a safe, healthy and supportive environment. But This is not a finished work. The role of Hope in small communities is to weave possibilities and empowerment into the lives of the people, is giving them the opportunity to envision and enact a different future for themselves and others.
In times of adversity or despair, Hope can carry us forward.
Hope is more than just a feeling, more than just a belief; it is a sentiment capable of making the difference between life and death. This House is dedicated to rekindling Hope in those that have lost theirs.
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
Hope was the last feeling remaining inside the box after Pandora opened the box.
Hope and the Myth of Pandora
The Pandora's box is a very used expression when you want to make reference to something that generates curiosity, but that it is better not to be left alone, otherwise you will show something terrible, that can get out of control.
This expression comes from the Greek myth, which tells of the box that was sent with Pandora to Epimetheus.
One may ask about the meaning of the Pandora Legend and the Presence of Hope. why should a box, or jar, containing all the evils of mankind also contain Hope? In the Iliad, Homer says that in the Zeus heavenly mansion there would be two jars. One that would guard the goods, other the evils.
The Theogony of Hesiod does not mention them, contenting himself with saying that without the woman, man's life is not viable, and with it, more secure. Hesiod describes Pandora as a "beautiful evil" ( kalòn kakòn).
The name "Pandora" has several meanings: Panta dôra, which has all the gifts, or pantôn dôra, which is the gift of all (of the gods).
The reason for Hope's presence with evils must be sought through a more accurate translation of the Greek text.
