What’s your impression of Africa? Whether shaped by Hollywood films, news reports, or charity ads, the stories we hear about African countries are often negative: poverty, war, and despair. And while these are painful realities for many, HOPE is participating in a different, more hopeful story. We invite you to visit Alain, Julienne, and Angéle in the Republic of Congo and hear their stories of creativity and productivity.
In this excerpt from a recent HOPE event, HOPE’s president and CEO, Peter Greer, demonstrates the urgency felt by those in poverty as they try to build a better future for their families. He also paints a picture of how Christ-centered microenterprise development can accelerate the process and make a difference by preparing people to work today.
