"I'm Working Among the Poor and Seeking Support"

Bright Hope World is a relational organisation.

Almost all of our funding partnerships come about because we are introduced to someone by someone else we know. We almost never initiate a partnership because we have been approached out of the blue by someone working in the poverty alleviation or missions space.

This is partly an issue of resources. We simply cannot vet and investigate every partnership request we receive. Hence, we rely on our existing networks, with people we trust, to introduce us to people who are of good standing and reputation.

This is not to say that people we do not know are not doing good work - of course that is not the case - but that we simply have to be selective in the relationships we begin to build.

So, unfortunately we just cannot take unsolicited applications for funding, nor requests to visit work being undertaken among the poor.
