About David's Hope International
Established in 2010, David's Hope began as a short-term missions trip in 2009 by a team from Northern Virginia that served and fell in love with the people in the remote African village of Eburru, Kenya. After observing the hopeless cycle of poverty and malnutrition first hand, the team returned home determined to do what they could do to help. Less than a year later, David's Hope International was born with a mission to support the Camp Brethren Ministry in supporting the Eburru community. Projects include the creation of a school service over 400 students, an orphanage, a medical center, and providing access to utilities (electricity, clean water, internet) as a few examples.
