Have Dinner With Us and Help Change the World

In 2017, HOPE International Development Agency continues to tackle the water crisis around the world. Families and their communities are suffering because they do not have clean water to drink.

In Ethiopia, for example, far too many people are forced to drink water gathered from filthy ponds, stagnant streams, and contaminated hand-dug pits.

In Ethiopia, as in other counties like Cambodia and The Philippines, HOPE has helped dozens of communities install water systems, but there is still much work to be done.

Have dinner with us and help thousands of Ethiopians drink their first cup of clean water.

Join us for a wonderful meal, the company of friends, a silent auction, a short feature film, some friendly competition through GameForHOPE from our friends at Pandoo Nation, and an important opportunity to transform lives through your giving.
