Learn about what we do

Agriculture

Hope in
every harvest.

We equip impoverished farmers and families with the skills, tools and seeds to produce life-sustaining crops through the agricultural work we conduct throughout the world. Each year, tens of thousands of meals are harvested for our children’s feeding work and income is generated for farmers and their families so children are fed and cared for.

Partnerships make all the difference

There have been countless times since Convoy of Hope was founded that I was reminded of the importance of friends and partners, like you, who help us serve those who are hurting. When we held our first official outreach in California in 1994 we had the helping hands of dozens of volunteers. Just a few weeks ago, when we partnered with the U.S. State Department in El Salvador to help impoverished women, we were reminded once again of the power of collaboration and partnerships.

Late last year I traveled to the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan and witnessed the strength of partnerships between our Disaster Services team and numerous in-country churches, agencies and organizations. By working together we are stronger and able to help more people. In the Philippines that meant thousands of storm survivors were given help and hope during some of their most desperate hours.

In Ethiopia, Convoy of Hope’s Women’s Empowerment program is thriving and growing — with the support of in-country partners. Today, thanks to those partnerships, women are learning the skills to run their own businesses and provide for their families.

Our Children’s Feeding Initiative is currently in 11 nations and caring for more than 145,000 children. That is possible, in part, because of the generous support of our feeding partners here in the United States. I’ve met children around the world who are being nourished because of the key, strategic relationships we have with a myriad of partners who want to help lift children and families out of malnutrition and hunger.

Partnerships with organizations, businesses and governments are critical to Convoy of Hope’s mission. But just as important is our partnership with the many individuals, like you, who have joined us in our passion to help the impoverished and suffering. Thank you for your support!

The Pack Shack Party

Just got an email from Bret Raymond, executive director of The Pack Shack, a new Northwest Arkansas anti-hunger organization dedicated to bringing people together in a “crazy fun party setting to pack healthy meals” to benefit local hunger relief organizations. Bret was writing with an update on NWA vs. Hunger, their kickoff event that recently benefitted Convoy of Hope and several other great relief organizations. Here are few sentences from Bret’s email …

“Now … the final meal count. Over two days, more than 900 people packed a total of 215,136 meals! That’s some serious funnel awesomeness! Way to go! The meals were distributed to the NWA Food Bank, 7 Hills Homeless Center, the Manna Center, and Convoy of Hope. And the meals that were given to 7 Hills on Friday afternoon were distributed on Saturday morning through their GO 7 Outreach program. Talk about immediate impact right here in NWA! As for the food [plus] drive, we estimate that 3,000-4,000 pounds of non-perishable food items were donated, along with 19 slow cookers, 1 blender, a rake and shovel, and a bunch of kitchen utensils! Beyond that, the AARP Foundation donated $10,000 to the NWA Food Bank’s senior mobile pantry program! Overwhelming generosity from every direction!”

Think Bret and The Pack Shack are passionate about fighting hunger? We do, and we’re proud to have them has partners.
