A Different Approach
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to build a better future. We exist to present those opportunities to people in need.
We address the physical and educational needs of those enrolled in our program.
Our Enrichment Center in Fort Lauderdale is a place where good Character counts and a meal is always provided. Through our Computer Learning Center and the Sea Starz program, we teach the importance of Integrity, Respect, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.
Internationally, we have served in India, Haiti, Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana.
Our current international focus is on the needs of the indigenous communities of Orealla and Siparuta in Guyana’s rainforest. These are some of the poorest communities in Guyana. There, our Community Enrichment Center provides opportunities for a successful and sustainable future for these villages.

A Bright New Future
Stories of hope and changed lives are a constant reminder of why we do what we do. Lives are being transformed through the efforts of partners like you.
“I have become a better person, great opportunities have opened up for me, and my future looks bright because of Bags of Hope. You have completely changed the direction my life! Thank you for investing in me.”- Nick (Program Participant)
“I miss working in the hot sun with my team, then running & jumping into the river & taking our river baths 😂, then going & laying in the hammocks with all the kids coming home from school. I miss spending every evening with 120+ kids running around playing games & climbing all over us! & I miss sitting out on the dock until the power went out & just sitting there in awe at the magnificent stars & reminiscing on God’s work that day. This place & these people made such an impact on me that I can never truly thank them enough”.- Caitlyn (College Student, Volunteer)
We’re There for You
“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.’ Hungry not only for bread- but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing- but naked of human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a home of bricks- but homeless because of rejection.”- Mother Teresa
Bags of Hope is a non-profit organization born out of a passion for providing opportunities for the underprivileged, and creating a better future for the marginalized. The founders, David and Diana Rambarran have a great desire to see others succeed, and build a better future.
Bags of Hope has reached thousands in need in the USA and internationally through the creative arms of Enrichment Centers. We are always excited to see transformed lives.
