The Hope Alliance is a humanitarian organization 501(c)(3) that provides a combination of resources and services necessary to address the root causes of poverty: unhealthy and under-educated populations and the lack of economic development. Local organizations and villages co-lead these projects that include health worker training, vision, dental and medical care, clean water and sanitation projects, micro-economic development opportunities and education projects. The Hope Alliance assists communities in development, not relief.
Development is teaching the skills people need to help themselves and linking them to necessary resources. Although relief plays an important role in saving lives, it is only temporary and is not sustainable.
