Bringing Hope to those living on less
than $1 a day.


Bright Hope's mission is to bring Hope to those living on less than $1 a day. We envision a world where under-resourced, local, in-country churches transform their communities and bring Hope to the extreme poor.

We have been engaging the local church around the world for more than 45 years in the global fight against extreme poverty in their communities. Each community within the countries we serve has its own unique needs. Yet, the one thing they all have in common is an established group of Christ followers. These churches provide an already existing infrastructure within rural areas and slum communities that has an established reputation, reach and influence. When properly engaged and carefully resourced, they become a well-run, accountable entity for holistic transformation.

Through our years of experience we have seen the church be courageous in loving those considered unlovable, be generous in times of crisis, and willing to help all peoples regardless of religion. We have found building into an already existing unit like the church is more effective in life transformation and helping lift the extreme poor out of their situation than trying to establish something new.

At Bright Hope we believe in the power of a holistic approach and have a three-tiered development model centered around:

Hope for Today

  • Orphans & Vulnerable Children
  • Clean Water
  • School Feeding Program
  • Medical Care

Hope for Tomorrow

  • Microenterprise & Job Training
  • Anti-Human Trafficking Initiative
  • Education
  • Agricultural Practices

Hope for Eternity

  • Resourcing Church Ministries
  • Church Leadership Development

We have seen the change this approach brings to individuals and communities through local, in country churches living in extremely poor communities around the world and hope you will join us in pursuit of this transformation.
