Our partners at There is Hope want to see refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable people in the host community rise above difficult circumstances by fully using their potential to self-sufficiency and to making a positive contribution to society.
We work alongside There is Hope for the joint objective to see communities transform as Jesus is introduced into the lives of individuals. We see this happen through the partnership with both organizations as stakeholders. We bring field staff, funding, and a global network, while There is Hope brings culturally-informed, on-ground leadership, direction and local support.

INTEGRATED COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
When we enter a community, we seek to relate to and understand the community through the eyes of Jesus. This includes pre-training and ongoing on-field research.
EVALUATE and ENGAGE
We repeat a collaborative cycle that aims to work alongside others in the community to identify and assess both needs and resources. Alongside the community, we encourage initiatives guided by a strategy and help implement them.
As transformation takes hold in a community our role changes. We avoid creating unhealthy dependencies and focus on what Jesus is doing within the community. This typically leads to expansion as transformation impacts surrounding communities.
