Hope Begins with a Meal

Feeding children nutritious meals opens doors to provide them and their families with education, clean water, job and agricultural training, a sense of hope, and much more. Currently, more than 200,000 children are fed in El Salvador, Nicaragua, the Philippines, Honduras, Haiti, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Lebanon, South Africa, Uganda, and Tanzania.

Why Feed Children?

Convoy of Hope wants to see lives changed as we promote healthy children and communities that are free from poverty and hunger. Many of the children enrolled in our program have their only meal of the day at school — a meal provided by Convoy and our numerous partners.

We believe that children are essential members of their communities who can, one day, become leaders who bring positive change to their countries by breaking the cycle of poverty and hunger.  To accomplish our goal, we use the daily meal as a starting point to build strong, loving communities that have clean water, healthy living environments, education, and livelihood opportunities.

Our Approach

  • Nutritious Meals

    We provide nutritious meals and monitor the health and growth of children each day in El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Kenya, Uganda, Nicaragua, the Philippines, Ethiopia, South Africa, Tanzania, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, and Lebanon. We implement appropriate sustainability programs based on the needs represented in each country.

  • Clean & Safe Water

    Clean water is life sustaining. That’s why Convoy of Hope has committed to the collection of water and the distribution of water filtration systems. We also train and equip local partners where safe water is not available.

  • Healthy Living Environments

    Dangerous structures and improper sanitation can derail a child’s life. We help communities create healthy living environments by teaching appropriate sanitation practices, completing school rehabilitation projects, and showing locals how to build proper latrines.
