the needWe are facing a crisis.
Across the globe, small community organizations are working among the poor to make a difference in their communities. These organizations are often run by international workers on a very small budget with limited staff. They are stretched in their resources and overwhelmed in their ability to meet the needs of the community.
Lives and organizations are deeply impacted.
Over 70% of workers return to their home country for reasons that are completely preventable These reasons include but are not limited to marriage challenges, family dynamics, interpersonal issues with other staff, cultural issues or spiritual burn out. When this happens, the leaders’ lives as well as the organization are deeply impacted. We often think of the great programs offered by international organizations – yet the long-term impact and viability of those programs is rooted in leadership. This is where HopeShares wants to make a difference.
