LOS ANGELES – August 14, 2014 – A total of 1268 commitments have been collected for Project 5117 – an initiative to empower underserved communities, Operation HOPE reported today.  Through Project 5117, HOPE is targeting the financially ill-equipped aspirants – youth and adults – people of all ages, races, and places in America who have not been exposed to the inner workings of the American economy for lack of self-confidence, access, opportunity, and role models.   

“Project 5117 provides a full range of tools, information, access, and personal guidance needed to succeed in the American economic system, and to speak the language of money with fluency, skill and personal motivation,” says Shannon Campbell Managing Director for HOPE Global Initiatives. “We are pleased that so many people recognize the need for financial literacy and have joined the effort, by making a commitment. There is a lot of work to be done, so we are still encouraging people to join the effort.”
