Just Hope empowers people in some of the world’s most difficult living conditions to transform their future for generations by producing income for their families. Through this model of economic empowerment, they engage directly with people who are doing their part to improve their circumstances, and connect them with training, tools and opportunities. Because of the challenges their partners face, opportunities must be simple, repeatable and viable. 100% of contributions they receive go to project costs.
Their Guiding Principles ensure that they remain consistent in their approach to making an “impact that lasts.”
Economic empowerment that strengthens families
Just Hope empowers people to transform their future by increasing their ability to produce a household income. They identify people who are doing their part to improve their circumstances, and combine our resources — the ones they have access to locally and the ones they bring to the table. As individuals and families work to obtain independence, they reclaim a their dignity, envision new possibilities and experience the power of hope.
Building trust through accountability in the field
All Just Hope projects are supervised by trustworthy, qualified managers who are invested in the local communities – often locals themselves – and provide full-time oversight and reporting to ensure that money sent matches its intent. Their U.S. team visits often for on-site project verifications.
Smart business processes, from assessment through exit
At the core of the Just Hope project model are opportunities that are simple, repeatable and viable given the circumstances their partners face. All projects follow an established process that starts with an assessment, moves through project execution and concludes with an exit strategy. Their partners have ownership of projects from the start, so they require no long-term outside resources. They embrace accountability, build relationships to earn trust, and remind theirselves continually to “know our customer.”
