Summary

Oftentimes When People are Living Below Poverty Levels, the Emphasis is Purely on Basic Needs Such as Food and Shelter Being Met.  HOPE USA has Incorporated a Multi-pronged Approach to Poverty Alleviation Which Also Places a Significance on Mental Health, Especially that of Children. 

The Islamic Holiday of Eid is Celebrated Enthusiastically Across Muslim Countries.  It's a Time of Celebration, Special Foods, and New Clothes.  For those living below poverty levels, Eid can feel just like any other day throughout the year, as many are grappling with the burden of not having enough to provide their family with even the basics.

Long-term Impact

By Employing a Multi-pronged Approach to Poverty Alleviation Which Incorporates Mental Health, HOPE USA is Ensuring that Needy Children are Mentally and Emotionally Equipped to Strive to Break Free from the Cycle of Poverty.  Poverty by definition encompasses a state in which one's basic needs are not fulfilled due to a lack of financial means.  HOPE USA attacks poverty from all angles: Health, Education, Vocational Training, Clean Water, Disaster Relief, Ramadan Activities, and Qurbani.  We believe that every human being, given the chance and provided with basic human rights, has the ability to reach his/her potential in the world.  

 

HOPE USA Summary: 

HOPE Charities USA is a volunteer-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization working to better the socioeconomic forefront of impoverished citizens in Pakistan.  Estimates of poverty in Pakistan range anywhere from 25 percent to almost 40 percent. Health indicators suggest that it is the lack of accessible healthcare — not terrorism, drones or the energy crisis — that is the greatest adversity facing Pakistan.   Additionally, in a country where 60 percent of youth are illiterate and only 1 in 3 women can read and write, education becomes a scarce commodity which inhibits freedom from poverty.  HOPE USA’s mission is to end poverty in Pakistan through a calculated, multi-pronged interventional approach which focuses on Healthcare, Education, Vocational Training, Clean Water, and Disaster Relief. 

Currently, HOPE has a countrywide presence throughout Pakistan which includes 4 Hospitals, 3 Formal Schools, 200 Informal Schools, 6 Vocational Centers, 1 Basic Health Clinic, 2 Mobile Health units, and 6 Maternal and Child Health Clinics. Altogether we have grown to a network of hospitals and schools that treats over 750,000 patients per year, educates 12,000 students annually, and provides income-generating skills to over 2,000 young adults yearly; 70 percent of our beneficiaries are women and children. 

All of HOPE USA’s health, education, and vocational training facilities provide free/nominal cost services to the impoverished.  Additionally, HOPE has been on the frontlines of every emergency relief effort that has impacted Pakistan, from the 2005 Kashmir earthquake to the current 2022 catastrophic flooding crisis.  Our emergency relief efforts have generated aid to over 100,000 victims of natural disasters over the years and we have established 120 hand pumps in remote and rural areas to provide clean water to 120,000 people total. 

As a nonprofit organization, HOPE USA has an outstanding record of performance.  With almost 15 years of experience, we are currently at the stage where we are a small organization with tremendous impact potential.  Major corporations/governments have vetted us and trust our work.  Some recent grantors include Procter & Gamble, Paypal, Target Corporation, US Aid, Unicef, and the Centers for Disease Control. Additionally, HOPE USA has received corporate matches from Cisco, Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle, Facebook, Linked In, Adobe, Paypal, Mastercard, and Dreyers.  We are a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) boasting some of the lowest overhead rates one will see in the nonprofit realm (less than 3 percent). In 2021 we were awarded a medal by Pakistan President Arif Alvi for our poverty alleviation model in Pakistan – we were 1 of just 2 organizations to receive this honor.  We are also the only authorized distributer of Procter & Gamble PuR water sachets in Pakistan which become critical during times of natural disasters such as the current flooding crisis.

“No matter how dire the current situation in Pakistan, or the obstacles we face in the future – there is always hope.” ~ Dr. Mubina Agboatwalla, Founder of HOPE USA

We're On a Mission to Spread Smiles This Ramadan With Eid Clothes!

Dear HOPE Friends,

❤️ Gift a Needy Child Eid Clothes This Ramadan❤️

🦺 As Has Been our Tradition for the Past 15 years, We Are on a Mission to Spread Smiles This Ramadan!

🎁 By gifting needy children across Pakistan with Eid clothes, we address the critical, yet often overlooked psychosocial aspect of freedom from poverty.  

You can participate in this effort by donating any amount towards our Eid Clothes campaign - each outfit is $17 and this cause is Zakat-Eligible. 🎉

The Pictures Represent our 2024 Eid Clothes Distribution from the Past Few Days. 💝

A new Eid outfit has numerous benefits, many of which are intangible.  Often one can establish various pragmatic avenues to poverty alleviation, however the psychosocial development of children is not addressed as effectively with an exclusive focus on basic needs.  After all, how can children overcome poverty if their mindset is still trapped in their past?
