Safeguarding the health of those we serve is crucial to Bring Hope, and we do this through our aid donations, programmes and partnerships. We believe that all people should have the right to adequate and timely healthcare and acknowledge that this should be the most basic provision.
Bring Hope actively works to ease the poverty of those we serve through all our projects. We approach this goal from a multifaceted plan of action that addresses the short and long-term needs of the communities we assist.
Moreover, thanks to our strong international partnerships, our regular donations of humanitarian and medical aid to refugee camps and poor communities make essential supplies accessible to those who are unable to source these products from elsewhere.
We aim to help break the poverty cycle, as well as provide essential services to find solutions that build resilient communities.
Bring Hope recognises the vulnerability of displaced women and girls who have faced years of conflict, resettlement and abuse. Gender equality, for these communities, is still a work in progress.
Our focus is on providing opportunities for learning, skill-building and livelihoods for women through our programs. With these opportunities, we hope to support displaced women in gaining autonomy and financial independence, and in doing so we strive to empower their communities as a whole.
In line with SDG 5, our activities work towards preventing Gender Based Violence by utilising educational and livelihood-based approaches for both men and women.
Bring Hope’s aid donations from partner organisations are often from stock surpluses— meaning that if not donated, these would become waste. Bring Hope, therefore, has the ability to divert tonnes of products from going to landfill or incineration and to redistribute them to people who ordinarily would not have access to them for economic or accessibility reasons.
With a sustainable model that requires minimal cost and involvement from our partners, we believe that the companies we receive donations from are encouraged to commit more of their stock surpluses to donations, ensuring more loads of products redirected to those who benefit greatly from them, and away from landfill and potentially harmful environmental effects.
Bring Hope’s organisational model is in many ways an embodiment of SDG17. Through our multi-stakeholder partnerships, we assemble a large network of collective expertise to be able to execute our life-changing work to the best of our ability and in the best interest of those we serve.
Our partnerships span continents and many business sectors, working in both the private and public business sphere.
We do not view other NGOs in regions we operate in as competition— rather partnership opportunities to mobilise resources and knowledge to best attend to the needs of those we serve. Our common goals unite us in our mission to bring hope to the most vulnerable through aid donations and programmes.
Conflict and war are most often the reasons why the people we serve are forced to relocate from their homes or seek accommodation in temporary refugee camps. The safety and peace of these individuals and families are crucial to Bring Hope, and our mission to bring hope and restore dignity to all those we serve embodies our commitment to peace-building.
Bring Hope is also committed to transparency as an organisation, in not only our actions as an NGO but also our institutional processes such as application processes and staff diversity. Our annual reports detail how we make use of donations, the work we complete in each region we serve and our future vision.
Our work to save lives and alleviate suffering globally by providing humanitarian and medical aid, as well as bringing hope to people experiencing displacement and poverty, is always carried out regardless of age, gender, religion, ethnicity or nationality.
Based on a model of inclusion, Bring Hope’s efforts span multiple continents in aid and donations, proactively engaging with the groups we serve to ensure our aid is needed and appropriate.
As an organisation, our core values of empathy, tolerance, honesty and humility further reflect our dedication to SDG 10.
Bring Hope recognises that for people in vulnerable situations—for example, those living in refugee camps or communities that have dealt with the destruction and violence of war— access to quality education can be challenging and may not be made a priority.
We envision a future in which living in a refugee camp or internally displaced community does not impact the ability for an individual to gain access to quality education.
Our programmes have been designed to increase employable skills of women in refugee camps and educate children in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to ensure they remain at the same level as their peers.
Many of the individuals and families we serve live in temporary accommodation in refugee camps, with little to no access to energy sources.
Bring Hope partners with WakaWaka to deliver solar charged portable lights to families who find themselves in situations where safe and affordable electricity is too difficult to reach.
Our vision is to bring a decentralised solution to those we serve, meaning they do not need to depend on potentially unreliable, inconsistent, or unsafe electricity sources and can be ensured light will be available when needed.
