HOPE IN ACTION
Welcome to the “HOPE in Action”
- What is Hope in Action Commitment Making?
Most of us want to be change agents but feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the task at hand. The challenge is always the how, who, what, when and where, but seldom the why. We wonder how one person can change the world.
At Operation HOPE, we believe that one person can make a difference. That is precisely why John Hope Bryant founded Operation HOPE, because as one person — at 26 years of age, in South Central Los Angeles, California — he thought that he could ‘do something.’
HOPE in Action Commitment Making (Hope Commitments) is that vehicle where one person, combined with the actions of others, can in fact change the world. It is a platform where aspiring change agents like us can pledge commitments to do good. It is a platform where one person, combined with the actions of others, can change the world for the better.
- What are Hope Commitments?
Hope Commitments can be large or small; involve financial resources or in-kind goods and services.
Hope Commitments support the overall mission of Operation HOPE by focusing on the following 5 domains:
- Promotion of social justice.
- Empowerment & inspiration of financial self-reliance for individuals and communities.

- Who can participate in Hope Commitments?

- When will Hope Commitments be launched?
The first round of Hope Commitments will be announced and formally operationalized during the 2019 HOPE Global Forum Annual Meeting, May 29-31, 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia.
- Why should I participate?
Hope Commitments are designed to encourage all of us to take action, to become change agents.
Through an Annual Hope in Action Commitment Making Report, participants will be able to assess the collective impact of their pledges.
