HOPE International To Host "Investing In Dreams" Lunch

Friday, October 13, 2017
Nonprofit organization HOPE International will host their "Investing In Dreams" lunch in Chattanooga next week. The event is taking place at The Public House next Wednesday from noon-1 p.m.

"Our faith-based organization is dedicated to eradicating poverty overseas and creating entrepreneurs in impoverished communities through microloans, financial training and discipleship,"officials said.  "More than two billion people around the world live on less than $3.10 a day, limiting their access to basic necessities like food, shelter and clean water.
Only one out of every four people living in low-income countries has a bank account, causing them to lack the basic financial tools that could ultimately help them thrive. Without a safe place to save, these men and women are vulnerable to unexpected emergencies and without access to capital, they struggle to build their businesses to better provide for their children and families.

"HOPE is passionate about investing in dreams. Celebrating 20 years of ministry, HOPE's Chattanooga event will feature Chris Horst, vice president of development for our organization, sharing how families around the world are moving from poverty to flourishing."

For more information on the event, contact Laura Cooper at lcooper@hopeinternational.org or 615-979-6727.
