World Hope International

Alleviates suffering and injustice in Africa and elsewhere through education, microfinance, and community health programs. Builds wells, provides HIV/AIDS education and orphan care, and works to prevent human trafficking.

World Hope International is a faith-based relief and development organization that works to alleviate suffering and injustice through education, enterprise, and community health.

We respond to some of the most compelling challenges of our world. For example:

  • world-hope-photo2In Sierra Leone, thousands of adults and children lost limbs in a brutal civil war. World Hope restored dignity, opportunity, and hope by providing prosthetic limbs for more than 3,000 people.
  • In Liberia, after a brutal dictatorship left the country in shambles, people were desperate for ways to provide for themselves and their children. World Hope stepped in to lead the restoration of a microfinance program, which now provides opportunities to tens of thousands of people.
  • Human trafficking, particularly in women and children, is modern day slavery. These individuals are forced into sexual slavery, domestic servitude, armed conflict, and begging networks, and are bought and sold for body parts. They suffer repeated rapes, beatings, forced abortions, and mental and physical abuse. Our anti-trafficking programs have provided emergency care for survivors of human trafficking, increased public awareness of the issue, and created anti-trafficking networks that link communities, law enforcement, and service providers.

Our programs are guided by four core values: transformation, empowerment, sustainability, and collaboration. We believe that for our programs to make a difference, local communities must be transformed, empowered to effect change, equipped to sustain the change, and engaged as partners. We focus on grassroots development, rather than U.S.-based development, and work to develop indigenous leadership and staffing.
