Ordinary people, working together, to bring leadership training, health care services, clean water, and community development to the Philippines.

Welcome

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Romans 15:13

Doorway to Hope is a non-profit organization established to raise up a network of people in the United States and Philippines to bring leadership training, health care, clean water, and community development to the Philippines. Individuals and teams will be mobilized to volunteer in their local communities and abroad.

The Philippines is a country made up of over 7,000 islands of which over 700 are inhabited. The Visayas islands are a central grouping of islands, with the greatest community development need. These islands have seen some growth but remain well below the national average for evangelical presence and economic stability. At the same time, widespread poverty continues to breed a lack of hope, creating a toxic socio-economic climate. In response to these needs, Doorway to Hope intends to concentrate on four key areas of need among the islands of the Visayas region, beginning in Northern Samar
