Poverty is an overwhelming issue for 25% of those living in Trujillo, Peru, and Santo Domingo, Ecuador. Project New Hope (PNH) seeks to serve the roughly 350,000 poor and marginalized people living in these cities by giving them hope and empowering them to experience transformation.
Over the past 10 years, PNH has been God’s instrument to bring hope to thousands of the urban poor. This hope has taken root, bringing transformation to individuals and families, and is beginning to transform the worldview of those who have been surrounded by urban poverty.
Our method is training and empowering nationals to see that God’s Kingdom is among us through lives transformed by Jesus, that God moves through them to love their neighbors, and to confront the sin and injustice in their communities and nation. The participation of U.S. churches that come alongside their brothers and sisters in these cities to assist in this transformation helps lead to new, dynamic Christ-centered communities.
