Haiti is currently the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.
Only a holistic, community-based approach can upend years of generational poverty. Bright Hope aligns our allies with local, in-country church partners to care for basic as well as spiritual needs in impoverished communities. Through a variety of programs that focus on medical care, care for vulnerable children, education, microenterprise, church resourcing and leadership development, communities in Haiti are moving out of poverty and towards self-sustainability.
