Through the HOPE Economic Project we are committed to helping build and preserve the dignity of the impoverished families we work with by creating income through economic projects. These jobs and small businesses are designed to function in Haiti’s small scale economy.
Families who are accepted into our program are required to participate in our economic training and follow-up to ensure that all is being done for their success. Income producing jobs include raising poultry, agricultural projects, food service, and more.
The Hope Community Project is dependent on the generous donations of people like you. When you donate, you are helping keep families together by helping a child attend school, providing basic health care and health education to these families and the community and by assisting an at risk family work to take care of themselves. Dignity is restored and the awful cycle of dependency is broken.
Grow Economic Opportunity
Assisting families in becoming more and more self dependent through our HOPE Economic Project requires both capital and supplies. Periodically we will let you know specific family situations and what their particular needs are. The assistance each family receives is in the form of a no interest loan to be paid back into our Economic fund for future loans to other families. As the need ever expands we will need people like you to help grow our Economic fund via donations. In addition, we periodically will let you know of items you can donate to help a family get their micro business off the ground. These periodic needs will be announced on our blog and in our newsletter.
Come to Haiti
The Hope Community Project trips offer the opportunity to personally experience the ministry of third world orphan prevention and medical/dental clinics and to encourage our partners in Haiti. We normally have 6-8 trips each year consisting of 18-22 people. Trips are six days and will give you the opportunity to meet and spend time with children and families we are assisting, orphans in several group homes in the area, and to see what daily life is like for Haitians and our team living there. Some of our trips include opportunities to participate in mobile medical clinics we conduct. We welcome medical professionals and you too! Every clinic needs a number of non-medical professionals to help in numerous capacities. Learn more or sign up for a trip here.
Behind all we do is the recognition that we can do nothing on our own and must constantly be reminded that we depend on God to provide. Therefore the most significant thing you can do to support our work is to pray. Pray for our team that we will continue to have both the wisdom and ability to partner with our friends and coworkers in Haiti to alleviate poverty and assist the development of a thriving and sustainable community. Pray for the orphans and poor of Haiti. Pray for continued resources for HOPE. Pray for our team members by name. And of course, pray about how God might be calling you to be involved in this ministry.
