Friends of Hope not only addresses basic needs (in the form of food, clothing, medicine & housing) but also empowers youth and rural communities to increase job opportunities, prevent teen pregnancies and eliminate human trafficking throughout Latin America.

We empower youth and communities through development. Working with international nonprofits, we implement projects that address the needs of impoverished communities such as aquaculture, animal husbandry, agriculture, water wells, clinics, and community centers. In addition, we have built a website to reach more people across the globe who share our vision and would like to support us in accomplishing our goals.

Friends of Hope partners with other large organizations who share our mission and have a great staff that have dedicated their time in order to achieve common goals.

Friends of Hope tracks how many people we have assisted and how we have assisted them and compares its progress against milestones. We also track which other organizations have assisted us and how they have assisted us.

Friends of Hope has helped 20,000 families in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Guatemala and Honduras. We will continue to expand throughout Latin America and ultimately beyond.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
