Our Story

How We Began

After years of mission trips to Haiti, Zambia, and the Middle East, Dwayne Brothers and several other friends decided that they wanted to do more than visit.  They desired to see more sustainable good.  And after visiting neighbors in their local community where children struggled with poverty and lack of resources, they decided to do more than visit.  They desired to see more sustainable good.  In 2011, The Love-Hope Project was formed to impact the next generation by developing leaders and programs that would share Jesus' love in tangible ways, both locally and globally.  

 

Locally, we have sponsored reading camps with refugee families in our community and also partnered with local schools to give away books and teach leadership principles.

Globally, we work in Zambia, Africa.  Currently, we support over 100 students with school tuition, supplies,  books, and clothes in order to be successful in school.  Most of these students would have no opportunity to attend without support.  We also drill clean water wells in local communities close to where our students are raised.  We have drilled numerous wells that serves 100's of families with clean water.
