The Hope Project International is a non-profit organization registered in the US. It was established in 2007 to improve the lives of underprivileged children and their families living in extreme poverty. Our mission is to assist families in Nicaragua, helping them break the cycle of poverty and giving them hope for a better future. Our programs include education, nutrition, vocational training, and humanitarian aid. Our name and mission are inspired by Jeremiah 29:11, which affirms God’s plans for our well-being and not our harm, offering a hope-filled future.
Making Change Possible
In Matagalpa, Nicaragua, there are many children who are forced to beg or sell items on the streets due to extreme poverty. Some of these kids have no homes, while others have left their families to work and support them financially. Sadly, as a result of their circumstances, they miss out on the opportunity to receive an education and learn fundamental reading and writing skills. To address this critical issue, The Hope Project International has launched a tutoring program that provides basic knowledge to these children and prepares them for attending public schools.
Change for the Better
Many families struggle to provide sufficient food for their children, making it difficult to stay hopeful. Unfortunately, this is a daily reality for many families. The Hope project aims to ease this issue by providing physical and spiritual nourishment to those in need. Through the Hope Nutrition Program, we offer a warm meal five days a week to anyone who is hungry. Our five nutrition sites are located throughout Matagalpa, ensuring that our services are accessible to those who need them.
In Nicaragua, many teenage boys are unable to pursue their education beyond elementary school due to factors like age or having to work to support their families. Teenage girls, on the other hand, face an even tougher situation as they are at a higher risk of being trafficked, becoming pregnant, or getting trapped in abusive relationships. To break this cycle, our vocational program aims to provide a way for young people to learn a trade skill and become financially independent, thus enabling them to support themselves and their families.
