We have been so blessed by Cultivate Wines and their support of Sole Hope, so when co-founder, Ali Banks, wrote us and said her daughter was interested in spending some time with us in Uganda, we jumped at the chance to meet another member of this wonderful family! Mini Banks joined our team at the beginning of February, and we were so excited to have her. We are thankful that she chose to come serve alongside Sole Hope! The entire Banks family is planning a trip to Uganda this summer to join us on the ground and use their hands and feet to provide hope for the children we work with!


We’d like you all to meet Mini!


“My name is Mini Banks and I am a freshman at the University of Georgia.

I heard about Sole Hope through my mother, who had previously done some work with them. When it was time for me to head back to Georgia for my second semester, I was hardly motivated. My mother said that if I preferred, I could take the semester off and travel to Africa. I jumped at the idea, and here I am interning for Sole Hope.

I have loved my time here so far and could not have met more amazing people!”
