2020 was a wild ride, but a new year finally is here! After talking to people across the world I understand we all are weary and ready for a change away from this global pandemic. This new year, 2021, matters greatly – and we are going to see transformation take place around the world!

World Hope International has a long history of partnering with other organizations. When it comes to emergency relief work there is a need for organizations to come together in order to make a greater impact.
In the Philippines, the opportunity for young people to attend college is increasing. However, some families must relinquish the dream for their children to continue their education because of poverty. Most teenagers quit school and work because there are not enough funds to provide the basic needs of their family.

When other organizations were shutting down and pushing pause on current work, World Hope did not close. We did the opposite. Our doors remained open and our staff pivoted in strategy to find a way to address COVID.
