Building Hope Together
“Love is very practical. It’s not just a sentiment. If you want transformation, that requires action.” ~Luciano, World Hope International – Haiti
World Hope International addresses global poverty with sustainable, grassroots solutions. Our programs promote dignity and build opportunity and hope in the communities we work alongside of globally. We respond to both acute crises and systemic challenges, partnering with local communities to implement the most sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions — initiatives that belong to the communities and are centered on their visions for a better future. And we do it all through strong relationships with faith-based and secular organizations, churches, and governments and individuals who share our compassion for those who have been marginalized, excluded, and not listened to.
Today, we want to give you the opportunity to join us in this good work with a donation.
We Inspire Hope
As a global alliance, our work spans over 20 countries around the world. We work primarily across four sectors, running projects that include clean water & sanitation, advocating against gender-based violence, creating access to education, reducing plastic pollution, and many other innovative and sustainable solutions to poverty, suffering, and injustice – like our mushroom cultivation project in Cambodia or the GivePower Solar Water Farm in Haiti.
We Invest In Clean Water & Energy
As we drill wells, create solar-powered desalination systems, and provide clean, affordable energy to off-grid communities, we help communities that have been marginalized around the world build a better future.
We Implement Protection
As we work alongside communities to counter human trafficking and gender-based violence, build access to quality education, empower youth, and strengthen civil society and governance, we address issues that violate basic human rights, facilitate audacious change, and inspire hope.
We Address Global Health
As we address child and maternal health, increase healthcare accessibility, and combat infectious disease, we mitigate stigma and misunderstanding, promote human dignity, and improve the wellbeing of women, children, and entire families.
We Innovate Social Ventures
Whether it’s building food security, addressing water scarcity, creating access to markets and finance, developing opportunities for youth, we will work alongside local communities to launch social ventures and build sustainable solutions.
Opportunity, Dignity & Hope
“You have the opportunity to help transform lives—like the girl who experienced the brokenness of assault; the community that experienced the lack of education and the lack of clean water. Your gift can open up access to those things which they didn’t have before and begin to bring justice, healing, and hope into a hurting, broken world.” ~Pheap, World Hope International – Cambodia

Mushrooms farming is benefiting families - and their communities
Q: How has mushroom farming impacted local communities? A: If you guessed one or all of increased food security, reduced labor migration, improved sanitation and hygiene, or affordable education – you’d be correct! And those are just some of the benefits…
Water springs opportunity & hope
Meet Lovedarly from the Haitian island of LaGonâve, where a severe lack of accessible, clean water made schooling and staying healthy a challenge. But now she is able to enjoy clean water through the new, solar-powered water farm installed on the island and launched in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s what she has to say about it…
Building hope for life
Meet Petra, a parent and pedagog who lives and works in Livno, Bosnia, and who is making a difference in the lives of children at a school where she works as well as in partnership with World Hope International. “I am a mom. I always think about my kids most frequently. That they could also get a chance for adequate education. That they would succeed in going to school. Finish or not finish university, that will be their decision. But I have hope for life here…”
Walking to a better future
Meet Alhassan, who is participating with his family in World Hope’s Enable the Children (ETC) program and working on cognition exercises and physical therapy. What difference is it making? As his mother puts it, “They have helped him improve a lot. He has started walking due to these exercises…”
Helping others find hope
Meet Miriam Fullah, who manages the Recovery Centre in Sierra Leone. “I’m able to help others. I’m able to give hope, aspirations for their life after they have these bitter experiences. I really enjoy my life here and this, I know, is what I want to continue doing for the rest of my life.”
Over the past four years, Kupenda and WHI have partnered in Sierra Leone to address superstitious beliefs that disabilities are caused by a curse from God.
