Who Are Ending Poverty, One by One

Breaking the poverty cycle is sustainable when those in poverty are empowered with knowledge and guidance to a new way of life.

Cause for Hope One Life at a Time is a nonprofit organization that seeks to enable thousands of families and individuals in developing countries to achieve lasting self-reliance through online and classroom based job market education and one-on-one mentoring.

The Process

Every “one” matters. Each person we help creates a ripple in their genealogy that lift others higher.

A student completes a course in English, Graphic Design, etc then graduates to a 12 – 18 months mentoring partnership.
Students serve in their community to earn “Service Currency” to pay for their education. Each step of the way they are learning to become self-reliant with a supportive community of teachers, classmates and mentors.
They grow to understand how to track income and expenses, pay off debt, set aside money for savings each month, and how to lift themselves from the destructive (horrible, demeaning, depressive) grips of poverty.

People Change the World, and Every Life Counts

Gain Skills for Employment

90% of support from people like you funds building, teachers, and course materials. The other 10% goes to administrative expenses like this website.

Recieve Guidance to Self-Reliance

People enrolled in our courses gain skills sets that help them find employment. They receive a mentor to guide them through finding employment, tracking their finances, and becoming financially self-reliant.

Prosper, Grow and Build Community

The cycle of poverty is broken as individuals and families get out of debt, move from poverty to middle class citizens and are able to send thier kids to school, gain access to better healthcare and become leaders in their community.
