About Us: Our Impact

Author W. Bruce Cameron famously said “Not everything that can be counted counts. Not everything that counts can be counted.”

The impact our partners make in terms of changed lives and transformed communities is not easy to quantify. Because we are a relational organisation, we place the greatest emphasis on ‘going and seeing’ for ourselves the impact our partners make. We talk to the beneficiaries of the work being done and we hear their stories first hand.

The infographic below simply provides a snapshot of the stuff we can measure. We update this every year and it is based on actual numbers. If you are a supporter of Bright Hope World, we hope you find this quantifiable impact as encouraging as we do.

Our vision of seeing the poorest of the poor become spiritually and physically self-sustaining.

Our mission is to develop and resource partnerships with indigenous people who have a vision to transform their communities.

Our values are:

- We focus on the poorest of the poor

- We invest in strategic partnerships

- We are field-driven

- We emphasise sustainability

- We are committed to a low overhead structure

At least 90% (and often 100%) of the funds we receive go to our partners in the field.
