Bridges of Hope International
OUR PROJECTS INCLUDE:
Short-Term Mission Trips (IMPACT TRIPS)
Short-term trips, hosted by Bridges of Hope International are designed with the purpose of helping participants experience the local culture, invest their talents, skills and life experiences to serve others. The trips focus on activities and projects that address the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of individuals in a variety of ways.
Our Child Sponsorship Programs focus on children at risk, orphans, and children who have been rescued from the human trafficking industry. These vulnerable children are currently being restored in safe havens where they are loved, cared for and nurtured back to emotional health. Your sponsorship will supply food, clothing, medications and school uniforms. This program gives you the opportunity to personally sponsor a child, receive a picture and background report and build a long-term relationship with the child. This personal touch is a critical part of the restoration process. A personal visit can be arranged with your child by participating on one of our short term trips.
Care Kit Program
Our care kit program is designed to meet practical needs, as well as emotional and spiritual ones. For as little as $9, you can donate a hygiene kit to someone living in poverty in Latin America. Our BOH mission teams will personally distribute your kit to someone in need. You can make your kit unique by writing a personal message to the recipient, which will later be translated into Spanish.
Construction projects consist of International partnerships which enable Bridges of Hope International to build houses for those living in extreme poverty. In addition, practical “hands-on” help is also given to organizations that wish to expand or improve their current facilities to better serve the needs of their communities.
Humanitarian outreach projects are designed to create an opportunity for each team member to practically express acts of compassion, love, justice and mercy. We feed the hungry, care for the oppressed, clothe those who are without basic resources, visit widows and orphans, and bring dignity and value to those who are imprisoned; spiritually, physically and emotionally.
Our medical projects focus on free medical, dental and vision clinics. International partnerships enable our team of volunteer surgeons and other specialists to provide care for those who are often medically neglected. Medical professionals and support staff are needed to participate in short term teams.
Bridges of Hope International partners with vocational training schools and micro-lending institutions in Latin America to help individuals start small businesses in order to rise from poverty. Ongoing training, supervision, and small capital investments insure the greatest level of success.
