"For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations."
- Isaiah 61:11
#PlantingHope is Bright Hope's Giving Tuesday initiative to raise $5,000 to provide opportunities for the extreme
poor to plant a garden and work towards self-sustainability.
We all know the saying, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
At Bright Hope we could spend endless time, money and resources to feed the extreme poor, never breaking the cycle of poverty. But trainings and opportunities for those in need to grow their own food allow them to provide for themselves. This way, we are investing in solutions to lift people out of poverty and give them Hope for the future.
Planting a garden is an intervention that applies to every country where Bright Hope partners, and although it may look different in each cultural context, the benefits for families, churches and communities continue to grow.

Don’t miss your chance to transform a community by #PlantingHope in the lives of the extreme poor!
