by Sarah Marchmont

You’ve probably seen pictures of poverty in developing nations. Children in tattered clothing. Mountains of trash and filth, and rivers so dirty they look more like murky oil than water.Have you ever wondered why some countries seem so incredibly poor and dirty, while others don’t? Maybe you’ve wondered: “Are ‘poor countries’ poor because they don’t have natural resources?”In most cases, the answer would be no.

Step Three: Give a gift

At Bright Hope, we partner with local, in-country churches to create lasting change. We seek to break cycles of poverty by addressing the physical and spiritual needs of some of the poorest people on the planet.
