Mission: Together in Hope works with marginalized communities in El Salvador, the Philippines, and works in partnership with Irish organization Youth Release in Ethiopia. Our goal is to help these communities move with dignity towards sufficiency and abundance. Together in Hope’s goal is to empower the poor to improve their lives through relational partnering that is just and that honors their dignity.
Results: We spent a lot of time this year fundraising for our medical mission to El Salvador. This was the first medical mission ever to take place in this community. With only one doctor and one dentist, we were able to see and treat approximately 500 patients. Our Jessica's Table program has expanded to three new areas increasing the number of children benefiting from this program to 700 children. We are currently fundraising to purchase a piece of property in El Salvador to build a new school, medical clinic and community health center.
Target demographics: Marginalized squatter communities in the Philippines, El Salvador and Ethiopia.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Approximately 700 children
Geographic areas served: The Philippines, El Salvador, Ethiopia.
Programs: Jessica's Table- A feeding and educational support program serving over 700 children worldwide. Medical Programs-We bring medical teams from the United States throughout the year, to provide free health care to the communities we work in. Livelihood programs- Many livelihood programs are run throughout the year to help families provide an economic base for their families.

Together in Hope has helped many people in El Salvador. That touches my heart because that is where I was born and it is so sad that crime is taking over such a beautiful country. Together in Hope truly provides people with "hope" to live in such horrible conditions. Blessings to all the people involved in the organization for helping so many in need.

TIH is doing awesome things in the Philippines and Ethiopia (with Irish organization Youth Release). They really care about the communities and have a great impact on the lives of people in need. Also, their Program Director, Laura Power, is super dedicated and does awesome work. Great job guys.

Having watched..Youth Release..project grow from its infancy in Dublin to its dream of building a youth centre for the poorest of children living on the streets of Ethiopia,its been a fantastic achievement.Having seeing the passion and commitment of the volunteers,the struggle trying to fund raiseto help these kids in Ethiopia.What i like about the project is that all monies raised go directly to the project ,without costs been absorbed by administration. (including volunteers paying their own travel costs etc ..).The impact on the lives of these children due to Youth Release is imense as these kids previously had no future,now they have a youth centre offering all different kind of programs and its giving the kids some hope in their lives..Youth Release is a fantastic organisation and has changed kids lives and given them light at the end of the tunnel.One of the main things to keep this project up and running is fund raising,and donations.At this end its terific to see an organisation like ..Together in Hope..supporting Youth Release.Keep up the good work. D.P.

Together in Hope have done so much to help the underprivileged in the Philippines and El Salvador. As a non profit organisation they have empowered and reached out to people and given them hope and a chance to make better life choices for themselves. Without organisations like Together in Hope those less well off in Society would not be given the opportunity to make a better life for themselves. Well done to all who work with Together in Hope and I wish them continued success in their ventures.

I have been following Youth Release since it's infancy and have watched it grow steadily over the last number of years. The work and commitment of the volunteers is amazing and awe inspiring. What started off as a tentative plan for a Youth Centre for the street children in Dire Dawa the dream has now been realised due to the dedication and resolve of its founders Niamh and Laura Power and to the many volunteers who have given their time and energy to this project. Youth Release has made a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of children in Ethiopia and with the support and backing of all of us will continue to do very valuable work and help those children less fortunate to lead a better life.
