World Hope International

Works to holistically alleviate poverty, suffering and injustice in Africa and around the world through clean water, education, agribusiness, anti-trafficking, health and emergency relief initiatives.

World Hope International (WHI) is a Christian relief and development organization that works with vulnerable and exploited communities to alleviate poverty, suffering and worldwide injustices.

WHI was founded in 1996 and now works in fifteen of the world’s poorest countries. Our work focuses on eight key areas: anti-trafficking and gender-based violence, clean water wells and sanitation, rural and economic development, agriculture, education, emergency response, health and nutrition and child sponsorship.


WHI’s vision is to empower those in need with opportunity, dignity and hope so they can be the agents of change for themselves, their families and their communities. Our programs bring tangible and positive change to the people we serve. WHI focuses on long-term results by providing resources and knowledge to the poor and most vulnerable so they can break the cycle of poverty and ultimately become agents of change.

During  the last two decades, WHI has become a leading-edge Christian relief and development organization that is recognized by partners and governments alike as a successful service model for those in need.

Some of WHI’s successes in Africa include:

  • Drilled 1,159 wells benefitting more than 800,000 men, women and children,
  • Launched a mobile power project to bring energy to rural areas of Sierra Leone,
  • Fought the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone as a leading responding agency,
  • Established a pineapples and papayas program for smallholder farmers to generate a year-round income,
  • Established Liberia’s first anti-human trafficking hotline,
  • Screened more than 76,000 children for malnutrition in 2016 and treated 3,000 children for severe acute malnutrition.
