“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

- Jeremiah 29:11

Bright Hope supports education through the local, in-country church in areas such as tutoring, after-school programs, partial scholarships for primary and secondary school, and materials and infrastructure for schools. For adults, Bright Hope offers partial scholarships for vocational schools in order to give them the opportunity to advance their careers and move out of extreme poverty.

Your generous gift of any amount will be utilized by our local church partners around the world, supporting programs that bring Hope for Tomorrow to those living on less than $1 a day.
