HOPE worldwide’s vision is to bring hope and change the lives of the world’s most poor, sick and suffering.
Our MissionHOPE worldwide is an international charity that changes lives by harnessing the compassion and commitment of dedicated staff and volunteers to deliver sustainable, high-impact, community-based services to the poor and needy.
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” -Matthew 25:40
Help Us Continue to Bring HopeAny contribution to this important cause is appreciated. As you learn more about our work, we hope that you will be inspired to join us. We invite you to become part of a community dedicated to changing the lives of the world’s neediest people. Each night children in the world’s poorest communities pray that tomorrow will bring a better day for them and their families. Join us in answering those prayers. Working together, we can make a difference.
Connecting on a Heart BasisTogether, we are a community in service to the most vulnerable people around the globe, working on an individual-to-individual, heart-to-heart basis, letting them know they have not been forgotten. The men and women of HOPE worldwide feel called to help the least fortunate among us just as Jesus did. Thousands of individuals and organizations have become our valued partners in this important work.
Developing Innovative ApproachesHOPE worldwide does not shy away from large challenges. We are fighting the HIV/AIDS pandemic and its consequences in Africa and around the world, building a new health care system in Cambodia, providing homes and jobs for leprosy patients and their families ostracized in India, and increasing literacy rates in underperforming U.S. schools. These complex challenges defy simple solutions and typically require new and innovative approaches, prompting us to develop “best practices” that have made HOPE worldwide a recognized leader in working to eradicate poverty and its effects.
Creating Lasting SolutionsWe develop integrated solutions to the underlying problems of povertyon a non–sectarian basis by buildingpartnerships, engaging localleaders, and leveraging available resources. The poor typically work hard but
struggle to break a cycle of povertythat can span generations. Whether it’s teaching new job skills, training teachers or improving access to health care, HOPE worldwide works with communities through Centers of HOPE worldwide to create sustainable solutions that go beyond addressing symptoms of distress.
