Adopt-A-Community

Countless small communities throughout Europe lack basic health, education, and support systems. Many villages need basic sanitation, schools, and simple community centers in order to sustain a movement toward a higher quality of life. Without these basic elements, each new generation is deprived of the basic tools needed to break the cycle of poverty in their community.

Convoy of Hope Europe’s Adopt-A-Community program partners an organization or church with a community in Europe to meet a specific need. Each program has a clearly identified objective, and involves a three to five year commitment from each party. Objectives from past programs have included building schools, renovating orphanages, road repairs, and installing indoor plumbing in community buildings. Current projects extend from installing water filtration systems to opening community centers.

Even small changes have a big impact on the general population, as was demonstrated when Albania was hit with devastating floods over the winter of 2014, destroying thousands of homes. Church members from one of our Adopt-A-Community programs in Albania took it upon themselves to respond to the disaster and began providing blankets and household goods to those hit worst by the flooding. Kindness had been shown to them, and they did not hesitate to pass it on.

Find out how your organization or church can become an Adopt-A-Community partner!
