Give Hope

When we started BrightPoint for Children in 2007, we didn't really know what to expect. We had been on successive mission trips to Honduras where we had witnessed and experienced troubling poverty, and we were just trying to be faithful to a calling to help children in developing countries

On one repeat trip, I returned to the home where I had worked under the hot sun of Central America to help a family build a latrine. All of the family members were still there, but I was surprised to find the 14 year-old boy that had befriended me the previous year hanging around the house with nothing to do. When I asked him in my broken Spanish why he wasn't in school, he responded that his parents could not afford to send him to school. That one statement put such a burden on my heart. There had to be a way for us to help this young man with his school fees.

From that point forward, we started working on building an organization where like-minded individuals could help a child with a dream get an education, hope to escape poverty, and hope for a better life.

BrightPoint for Children was launched in May of 2007 and today sponsors over 6,300 children.

But we don't do this alone. We can't do it alone. We created an organization that would engage with other non-profits who serve children. They have feet on the ground in some of the poorest countries in the poorest conditions in the world and are making a difference in the lives of the children living there. They serve the children and we serve them by administering their child sponsorship programs. These organizations are our heroes. Working together, we believe lives and futures have been changed forever.

We can't do it without you either. Your support is vital to allow us to continue our mission to eradicate poverty one child at a time. It costs us $5 per month to administer the sponsorship program for each child. Our goal is to raise $30,000 by the end of the year.
