The holiday season can be filled with many different emotions. For some it is a wonderful time filled with parties, gifts, family and friends. For others it is a time filled with pain due to loss… loss of a family member, loss of a job, loss of hope for a better future. The pain is real but hope is too. We can never lose hope! When you choose hope, anything is possible.
It has been very exciting for us at Supply Hope to work with our micro-franchise store operators and see them move from hopeless to hopeful. We have stated this many times but we truly believe that one of the greatest needs of the poor is a job. Most people want to be able to provide for themselves and their family. For children to have hope for a better future, they need to see their parents have opportunity.
Although the focus at Supply Hope is providing jobs through micro-franchising, our heart has always been to see children loved and provided for by their own parents or care-givers. Sponsorship programs and aid are wonderful and needed but at some point you hope to see families move from receiving aid to a place of dignity where they are able to provide from themselves and their children have hope. That is our ultimate goal.
So this holiday season give someone hope by giving them a job!
We have a growing waiting list of entrepreneurs in Nicaragua, the second poorest country in the western hemisphere who want to work hard, provide for their families, and earn a steady income. YOU can help them do that by giving them the supplies they need to get started. So, we’ve created a fun, interactive way for you to build a store!
