Flower Mound, TX

Mission

We all have a story. So many are torn apart by trauma, neglect, poverty, abuse and exploitation. People and communities tend to let these circumstances, along with ordinary mistakes and bad decisions, define the identity and dignity of the individual. Radiant Hope seeks to restore identity and dignity to those affected by injustice and severe poverty by empowering them to re-write their own stories.

Radiant Hope works to increase the level of care, resources and well being of vulnerable people in Romania and India. We do this through collaborative local partnerships. Our mission is to restore identity and dignity to those affected by injustice and severe poverty by empowering them to rewrite their stories.

We work collaboratively and holistically. It is important for us to build relationships with the people we partner with and the people we serve in Romania and India so that we can better understand their true needs. Before starting a new initiative, we network and research if there is already someone focusing on this issue before we reinvent the wheel. This has allowed us to work more efficiently and effectively.

Our directors, employees and volunteers are educated and experienced in international business and development, human development and family studies, trauma counseling and family therapy, pastoral care and entrepreneurship, and have years of experience combating issues such as human trafficking.

We measure our progress based on the quality of relationships with our partners, the number of people attending our trainings or activities, and requests from other local organizations and government departments to assist them further.

In 2018, we have grown exponentially through our work in Romania and India. We have developed numerous additional partners in Romania bringing more resources to the region we are focusing on. We started sponsoring additional staff and reaching more vulnerable girls throughout our county, expanding from working exclusively with girls in the government orphanages to include other high-risk girls living in poverty and/or with single parents. We started implementing trainings and resources on human trafficking for local government, NGO, and school staff. We are bringing in vocational training workshops for at-risk youth and helping connect them with legitimate career trainings and opportunities. In India, we have provided trainings on emotional development and trauma to our partners over several occasions and trained school teachers on managing trauma-informed classrooms as they work with children in the slum communities.

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).
