Hope Alive Initiatives (HAI), founded by Francis and Pamella Bukachi, was established in response to the need to effectively empower and equip grassroot churches and organizations. HAI began training these groups in Northern Ghana in July 2010. In 2019, HAI was serving in Ghana, Kenya, Burkina Faso and Malawi. To date in 2020, we have partnered with additional churches in Zambia, new communities in Western Kenya and Burkina Faso. In the midst of the Covid-19 Pandemic and travel restrictions, we had to postpone upcoming plans to go to Liberia, Malawi and the USA to 2021. Hope Alive Initiatives receives several invitations and requests for partnerships and training on a monthly basis.
To empower African Churches in poor and vulnerable regions to effectively share the Gospel, demonstrate the love of God, and disciple their communities.
Building Community Partnerships | Training Churches & Leaders | Increasing Capacity.
To bring lasting wholistic change in poor and vulnerable communities through local churches, evangelical organizations and believers. This strategy is rooted in the Bible:
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” – Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJV)
To carry out the mission, Hope Alive Initiatives is committed to three goals:
- Building community partnerships through awareness and networking.
- Training churches and organizations in the following areas:
- In governance through leadership training,
- In holistic outreach by developing various outreaches,
- In sustainability through Economic empowerment training,
- In God’s Word and related spiritual growth disciplines.
- Enabling churches and organizations to carry out practical and sustainable projects in their communities
Not dependent on outsiders to make decisions. Able to reach out effectively – in life, word, sign and deed - within its culture. Not needing outside funding to carry on its work. The ability of a church to develop its own theological understandings from Scripture.
