We’ve all heard the ancient proverb,
“Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach him how to fish and he eats for a lifetime.” But what if I told you that together, we can revolutionize the fishing industry?
Have you ever wondered how much of a difference your donation makes in the lives of the people to whom you donate? Efficiently run organizations maximize your dollars to create deep impact for the people they serve. But often, good intentions fail to stimulate economic growth for the people in need of a handUp.
The irony is that most of the time it is the lack of economic stimulation in communities that keeps people relying on handouts. Although your donation helps for a day, months or even years—
Does it revolutionize entire communities & promote lasting change?
Up to 80% of children in Haiti are poverty orphans. Many of them have parents that love them but can’t scratch out enough of an existence to meet the basic needs of their sons and daughters. The lucky ones end up in institutions.
But many of these poverty orphans end up on the streets, sold as slaves, trafficked, exploited, the list goes on and on.
And who is doing most of the exploiting?
The broken men raised in these impoverished communities.
At HandUp, we believe we can equip former street boys to radically change their trajectories from broken men and future orphan makers to leaders and future hope makers. We do this through one powerful formula:
Job Creation + Spiritual Discipleship = Orphan Prevention
When you say “yes” to investing in HandUp Global Goods—you forge new pathways for economic development in communities as we seek to:
- Employ 100 Haitian young men by 2020
- Diversify production in order to meet the demands of the global marketplace
- Scale our current Spiritual Discipleship program to create a strong, replicable model
- Expand both U.S and Haiti marketing efforts to create more streams for revenue
- Seek to sustain Haiti operations through sales revenues
What does this all mean?
It means less orphans, less extreme poverty and more strong men making a positive impact within their communities. Let’s stop settling for handouts and give them a HANDUP together.
