Our aim is simple, to bring hope to those with no hope. To change the lives of everyone we come into contact with—our donors, volunteers, staff, NGO partners, government, and the poor whom we serve. HOPE 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.
HOPE worldwide provides non-sectarian assistance to millions of needy people per year in 80 nations. It is a recognized NGO in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, and is a registered private voluntary organization with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). It has been recognized as “exceptional” in its sound fiscal management by Charity Navigator, with an extremely rare six consecutive four-star ratings from 2001 on. Known for best practices in a number of fields, with a variety of partners around the world, HOPE worldwide is recognized for its compassion and high value per dollar donated.
Our mission is to provide sustainable, capacity-building health and education programmes, through staff and volunteers, which empower children and other vulnerable individuals. HOPE worldwide was established as a charitable trust in 2000. We have FCRA clearance and 80G Income tax exemption for donors. We are regularly audited by the government and our corporate auditors and believe in complete honesty and transparency. We have many partners and friends around the country, and we are operating in 17 cities in India, with over 50+ programmes in a variety of areas of helping the poor. We also are working in Bangladesh and Nepal.
At present we have 12 Centres of HOPE across India, serving the poor in about 17 cities, towns and villages, with over 10,200 lives being touched this year. Services range from the care of seniors, orphans and dying HIV/AIDS victims, to education and vocational training, to far-reaching healthcare and health awareness programmes impacting hundreds of thousands. We dream that together with our partners we can see Centres of HOPE growing in cities, towns and villages across the nation, empowering the poor to also take part in India’s new economic boom.
