Convoy of Hope is a faith-based organization with a driving passion to feed the world. Our children’s feeding initiatives are a result of that.
The goal of our children’s feeding initiatives is to see lives changed as we promote healthy children, community sustainability, and development. To accomplish our goal we believe that we must go beyond the basic meal to intervene at five levels: nutrition, clean and safe water, agricultural initiatives, healthy living environments, and education.
We feed and monitor the health and growth of children each day in far-flung places such as El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Kenya, Nicaragua and the Philippines.
We implement appropriate sustainability programs based on the needs represented in each country.
Clean and Safe Water
Clean water is life sustaining. That’s why Convoy of Hope has committed to the collection of water, distribution of water filtration systems, and training and equipping local partners where safe water is not available.
We empower the local church, mission workers and non-governmental organizations.
Poverty and dependency on food aid are alleviated when we teach agricultural techniques that allow families to grow nutritious food, raise livestock and sell their surpluses for profit.
We feed children while moving toward sustainability.
Healthy Living Environments
Dangerous structures and improper sanitation can derail a child’s education. We create healthy living environments by teaching appropriate sanitation practices, completing school rehabilitation projects and showing locals how to build proper latrines.
We conduct regular evaluations that determine when programs will be implemented or adjusted.
Investing in the teaching of job skills, basic financial practices and methods for starting and maintaining small businesses creates sustainability and productive lives.
We empower personal and economic growth.
