Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Hope For Today, Hope For Tomorrow, Hope For Eternity

Bright Hope is an association of over 400 Biblically based churches in rural villages and city slums. These churches are wholistically impacting their communities through programs that provide Hope for Today (meeting immediate needs), Hope For Tomorrow (meeting economic income needs), and Hope for Eternity (meeting spiritual needs).
Problem: millions of people live in isolation and desperate poverty; which can, for those of us wanting to help, feel frustrating, overwhelming and even confusing. Christians innately want to be generous, serve Christ and make a meaningful impact on those living in poverty, we just don’t know how or the best ways to use our resources. Bright Hope unites Christ-followers, with most effective and efficient methods, to bring Hope and help to those living in the world’s darkest slums and neediest remote villages.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Bright Hope unites Christ-followers from around the world to bring Hope and help to those living in some of the poorest places on Earth.

Through our Hope for Today, Hope for Tomorrow, and Hope for Eternity ministry model, we can break the grip of generational poverty, and as we do, we see lives changed and our own hearts grow.

Hope for Today projects meet immediate needs that aid in survival and inspire Hope for the most vulnerable individuals or communities.

Hope for Tomorrow projects promote education and vocational training, helping the poor to earn more money.

Hope for Eternity projects support local, in-country churches, equipping them to disciple believers, share the Gospel, and meet the physical and spiritual needs of their community.
