Caring for the poor is an essential principle throughout the scriptures, when we lift others we are humbled in the process. As we allow others to be self-reliant they are put in a position to do the same.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”How is Cause for Hope different from other similar organizations?” tab_id=”1470337808506-b9923339-64be”][vc_column_text]Cause For Hope differs from all other organizations because it aims to help individuals in developing countries achieve long-term self-reliance. It does this through one-on-one mentoring with individuals and families. No two situations are alike, so mentors work with individuals according to their needs using a multi-program approach of proven business techniques. Cause for Hope also uses a unique, results driven system to measure our effectiveness among the families we work with.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”How does Cause for Hope measure success?” tab_id=”1470337915134-d85fc871-68b8″][vc_column_text]We measure our success by regularly monitoring the change in our clients income and savings. Our mentors help individuals with small business training, vocational training, job placement, and micro credit lending; but these are only a means to the end of increasing the income and savings of our clients. Our primary focus is to permanently improve the economic situation of individuals and families living in poverty.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Where is Cause for Hope?” tab_id=”1470337916345-7ff3d5ff-8b7f”][vc_column_text]We currently have offices located in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, and Mexico.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Aren’t there needs in the United States and other first-world countries that we should be helping with instead?” tab_id=”1470337917251-147bf349-f2cd”][vc_column_text]Yes; however, developing countries do not have the same resources as first-world countries. Unemployment sometimes reaches 50% and underemployment is another 20-30% in impoverished nations. Cause for Hope works in countries where the average income is only $100 – 200 a month. In the areas we provide service, there is very little hope for opportunity to escape the poverty cycle without help from the outside; and there are very few Government resources to help provide for the poor.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”How is Cause for Hope financed?” tab_id=”1470337918229-b1ac1ad1-856e”][vc_column_text]Cause for Hope is financed in part with private donations who give through our website.
