More than 23 million lives changed since 1975
HOPE International Development Agency
enables the neglected poor in Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Americas to break the cycle of poverty through their own efforts and solutions.

“We gather banana blossom, but we don’t eat it because it is the only thing we can sell to buy rice. If we can’t buy rice, we eat cassava. It fills our stomachs, but I know it does not have good nutrition. Many times, we have nothing to eat. And the water we drink is not good either. It makes us sick.” Jimmy

You can stop the suffering today with a gift that will help provide agricultural training, seeds, tools, education, and clean water.

Annual Report to Donors

Having a global impact on poverty starts with the courage of families struggling to overcome poverty and the compassion of donors who believe every person should have the opportunity to be free from poverty and live with dignity. The support of donors, along with an integrated approach driven by the ingenuity of our long-term partners in the Americas, South Asia, South East Asia, and Africa, ensures that the life-changing outcomes of every dollar given are multiplied as families access clean water, grow more food, increase their income, restore their environment and health, and learn new skills that ensure their well-being.


Clean Water for Families in El Rosalito

El Rosalito is the only community in the mountainous San Jose de Ocoa region of the Dominican Republic that does not have access to clean water. When visiting the community recently, it was evident that the 500 women, children and men who live there are suffering. You can help the families of El Rosalito gain access to clean water that will transform their lives and community.


Help a mother in Ethiopia become self-reliant

Clean water for families in Chano Dorga, Ethiopia

Give clean water and help ensure that mothers are safe. Children can be healthy and attend school. Hours spent gathering water can be put to better use, such as growing more food, training, and establishing small businesses.


Give a mother in Sri Lanka the ability to double her monthly income

Provide the initial funds and training a mother needs in order to create the sustainable livelihood that will transform her family. Your one-time gift today will grow harvest upon harvest throughout 2019, and beyond, as the mother you’ve helped works her mushroom farms into a sustainable income that provides for all her family’s needs.


Help Families in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Helping families in the Democratic Republic of Congo double the production of their fish ponds helps them achieve their goal of becoming free from poverty. You can help provide higher quality Tilapia fingerlings, vastly improving the productivity of existing ponds. Additional training in the latest fish farming methods will be provided as well, ensuring the sustainability of the fish ponds for years to come. Families will also receive new hand tools to help with pond maintenance and expansion.
