Good Hope is a community in Mahaica flanked by Hand-en-Veldt and Helena Number Two; it has approximately 500 residents.

Farming, including cattle rearing has been the main economic activity until recently, when many of the residents branched out into other fields of work like carpentry, fishing, driving, and teaching among others.

Several residents said that their grandparents were born in Good Hope, which would account for the village being in existence for at least 100 years; no one knows for sure just how far back it dates…..
