Equipping Hope International is a registered 501(c)3, whose mission is to provide victims of war and disaster with the means to reconstruct their lives and attain economic self-sufficiency. Through this vehicle, EHI is able to share Christ’s love in the real day-to-day lives of those we build a community with. While many other agencies focus on emergency relief, we believe that refugees are in particular need of assistance. Often refugees face decades of refugee camps and emergency rations. Through multilayered relief operations and economic interventions with a Gospel focus, EHI strives to be more than a stop-gap for refugees; we aim to be fishers of men by making fishermen. . . and tailors, and farmers, and all manner of professionals and entrepreneurs.
Our pilot operation is in the Nyarugusu refugee camp of western Tanzania.
