Located in the Colonia of Madrid and San Felipe, our Haven of Hope Center is the only outreach center in the third largest city in Guatemala, providing nutritious meals daily to the most vulnerable of children in the community, children who most days live on less than a piece of bread a day, and spend their time in the streets begging and searching for food for their families. A nutritious meal is essential for survival and development. In attending our Haven of Hope Center the Hope Movement does not just provide physical nourishment, but through education and counseling we provide spiritual and emotional nourishment to guide children, heal their inner wounds, and inspire them to pursue their life’s purpose, understanding that poverty is not their destiny, it is only an obstacle to overcome to make their dreams into a reality.
Located in three locations throughout the Amazon City of Iquitos, Peru, our outreach centers provide nutritious meals daily to the most vulnerable of children in the community, children who most days live on less than a piece of bread a day, and spend their time in the streets begging and searching for food for their families. A nutritious meal is essential for survival and development. In attending our centers the Hope Movement does not just provide physical nourishment, but through education and counseling we provide spiritual and emotional nourishment to guide children, heal their inner wounds, and inspire them to pursue their life’s purpose, understanding that poverty is not their destiny, it is only an obstacle to overcome to make their dreams into a reality.
Our costumed designed leadership curriculum is provided to youth enrolled in the Haven of Hope Centers and nationwide community-based programs in schools, universities, churches and community centers, developing a mission mentality and incorporating evidence-based guidance, providing youth with an inspiring approach to shaping their hearts and minds by giving them a deep understanding of their life’s purpose. Youth gain knowledge to build their self-esteem, resolve conflicts, understand reasons and ways to say no to drugs and alcohol, gain a new perspective on reasons and ways to remain abstinent until marriage, and their eyes are opened to the realities of spiritual and social issues that millions of people are facing around the world, injecting an unshakable passion to make a stand for change. In now understanding their spiritual and social responsibility, fueled by their deep passion, youth are taught the key components of leadership, and are given the essential tools to incorporate their leadership abilities with their life’s purpose and inner passion, forming a new generation of transformation.
Our specially trained and licensed social workers in our Haven of Hope Centers and in worldwide alliances incorporate our costumed designed curriculum to teach, train, and empower adults, igniting a passion to find their life’s purpose, spiritual connection, and to step outside of their comfort zone providing them with the essential tools to become leaders and vessels of change, bringing transformation to their families, friends, community, and nation.
We offer two unique programs for adults to help them become better role-models, parents, and leaders in their community.
A voluntary, strategic alliance to enhance our ability to achieve a common purpose by sharing risks, responsibilities, resources, and rewards, transforming communities into havens of hope.
The Hope Movement Alliance builds relationships with local churches, ministries, and non-profits, meeting on a monthly basis to unite in prayer and encouragement and develop strategic plans of action and unique life-transforming programs, sharing resources, conducting missions activities, and developing leadership through our specially designed curriculum, working together to bring lasting change to communities throughout the nation.

Food Production and Distribution
The Hope Movement is also developing our own food production and distribution center which will develop a food mixture that would be easy and safe to transport, simple to make with only boiling water, and culturally acceptable worldwide. With our farm in Guatemala the Hope Movement is able to produce food for our feeding programs at a fraction of the cost, and also package and distribute food supplies to our partners in the Hope Movement Alliance throughout Latin America and other parts of the world.
Our mission teams consist of national and international missionaries who are passionate about bringing transformation to cities and nations. Our mission teams go out into the streets on a daily basis in places consumed by prostitution, street children, drug addiction, and extreme poverty.
The Hope Movement focuses our efforts on shaking people from their comfort zone, inspiring a mission mentality in those who are citizens. In order to see lasting change, citizens must be to ones who step up and bring hope to their own people. Through our Mission Teams, Generation of Transformation Programs, Haven of Hope Center, and the Hope Movement Alliance we are shaking the comfort zone, inspiring people and uniting them as one, training youth and adults within the nation to form a movement that will transform their nation into a haven of hope.
The Problem: Cycle of Hopelessness
Pakistan, the sixth most populous country in the world, borders India, China, Afghanistan, Iran, and the Arabian Sea. Due in large part to a lack of education and a low average family income, approximately 3.6 million children under the age of 14 work, mostly in exploitative and hazardous labor. The official literacy rate in Pakistan is listed as 50 percent; however, 63 percent of males are literate while only 36 percent of women can read and write. The primary school attendance rate for males is 62 percent and 11 percent lower for females. That figure drops to 23 percent and 18 percent, respectively, by the time children reach secondary school age. Pakistani children face poor access to education and health facilities. Nearly 38 percent of children under age 5 are critically underweight.
Generation of Transformation Outreach Initiative
The Hope Movement Pakistan Initiative has a vision to form a generation of transformation breaking the cycle of poverty, discrimination, violence, and hopelessness through social and spiritual Evangelism, Development & Relief of marginalized and impoverished communities. God has chosen to have us work with Him to bring justice to victims of oppression, for we are His hands. The truth is that He calls all people to seek justice for the abused and suffering in our world. God’s people often do not understand that social work goes hand and hand with spiritual outreach. You can’t have one without the other. Jesus always combined social and spiritual outreach together. He would not only preach to the people about spiritual salvation but he would feed the hungry, heal their bodies, and pull them out of the life of prostitution, addiction, and oppression. Reaching out to people to only help them spiritually is like seeing a person drowning in the ocean. You are standing on the shoreline with a life raft, and you say to them here is your salvation now come to me, and I will give you the life raft and you will be saved. God’s people often watch people drowning in hopelessness and they stand in the distance of their comfort zone saying I know you’re hurting, here is your salvation, Jesus; all you have to do is come to us, or we tell them about what can save them, Jesus, but we leave them in their social situation and wonder why that person could not maintain their walk with God. They could not because we informed them about salvation, but abandoned them in the crack house, the brothel, the street, the abusive marriage, or the poverty consumed life. We rescued them spiritually but did nothing to help them socially, creating a never ending cycle of hopelessness. The moment we change our mentality and methods is the moment when we will see a world transformed.
