Shared Hope is a charity with a Christian ethos based on what Jesus Christ said was the second great commandment – “You shall love your neighbour as yourself”. We will seek to express this timeless challenge in the following ways:
- By Expressing Mercy. We will seek to meet the needs of individuals and groups of people who do not have the resources to meet their own needs. In particular we will seek to be catalysts in meeting their spiritual, social, medical, educational and economic needs.
- By Promoting Justice. We will seek to promote social and economic justice in practical ways for the poor of the world.
- By Upholding Dignity. We will seek to empower those who are poor by equipping them to become independent and self-sufficient. We will seek to meet the needs of those in extreme poverty.
We will attempt in all we do, wherever possible, to promote independence and sustainability. To this end we will work in partnership with likeminded trusts and key individuals on the ground.
