Charting impact

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

Hope Project aims to end the cycle of poverty in communities around the world, focusing our efforts on helping children in the areas of Nutrition, Education, Shelter, and Spiritual Development.

Hope Project aids in the betterment of children and families through providing adequate shelter, proper nutrition, opportunities for skills training and spiritual development and by making it possible for children to attend school who otherwise may not have access to education.

We aim to support schools in which we sponsor children to attend, in order to help provide the best quality education for the children.

We partner with existing organizations in the communities that we help.

Hope Project acts as a bridge between people who need help and the people that can help them. We fundraise and raise awareness about the needs of communities living in poverty around the world. We also provide opportunities for volunteers to travel to these communities and participate in the in the work. This model further increases our support base and ability to raise and spread awareness.

As of December 2021, Hope Project has built 236 homes for families in need around the world, provided more than 300,000 meals, made it possible for more than 1300 children to attend school who otherwise would not have access to education, as well as completed various other projects in the communities that we serve.

We will continue to partner with existing organizations on the ground in various communities around the world where children and families are experiencing poverty.
