Health is a fundamental human right. But not everyone has the same chance to access health care and live a full, healthy life. Project HOPE is working to build a more equitable world where everyone, everywhere has access to the health care they need.
Because everyone deserves hope.
Every day, millions of people struggle to access basic health services — many of them from groups that have been pushed to the margins, or historically disadvantaged through no fault of their own.
Project HOPE knows that access to care should not depend on your gender, race, income, or where you live. Everyone deserves quality and consistent health care with treatment from trained and equipped health care workers.
We are working to build a more equitable world for all.
By starting with one person at a time.
HIV disproportionately impacts young women in Namibia. But Project HOPE’s DREAMS program is helping to change that narrative by empowering young women like Adelaide to pursue a future free of HIV/AIDS and learn job skills that promote economic independence.
Project HOPE has helped tens of thousands of girls and young women across Namibia launch their own businesses, protect their communities from COVID-19, and graduate as DREAMS ambassadors to mentor other girls across the country.

Haiti’s 7.2-magnitude earthquake leveled homes, crushed schools, and destroyed businesses. Jean was home when the earthquake struck. He rushed his kids outside to safety but lost everything in the aftermath. Now he has no job and no home for his family. The experience left him with massive headaches, and he hasn’t slept much since the earthquake.
Project HOPE’s Emergency Response Team deployed to Haiti immediately after the earthquake to support health clinics in affected areas like Jean’s. We also delivered medicines, supplies, wound irrigation sets, and hygiene kits to exhausted pharmacies. Thanks to that support, Jean’s clinic stayed open — and he was able to get the medicine he needed.

Hope Can Come From Anywhere
When it comes to building a more equitable world, all of us have a role to play. No matter how old you are or where you live, your gifts and talents can support Project HOPE’s mission to build a world where everyone has access to the health care they need to reach their full potential.
Here are just some of the people who inspired us this year and prove that anyone has the power to be a force for hope — and change — in their community.
Ben is also the Co-Founder of Generous International, a for-purpose company dedicated to contributing profits to social issues and providing hope to communities around the world. He embodies our core values and shares our goals to make health care more accessible and more equitable, and was recently inducted into our Board of Directors. “The opportunity to work with Project HOPE excites me for the small or large role I will be able to contribute.”
Everyone Deserves HOPE
We envision a world where everyone has access to the health care they need to reach their full potential.
But if we want to live in a more equitable world, we must build it together.
At Project HOPE, we are doubling down on our work to reduce health inequality. But our work is only possible because of the support you provide.
Support for Adelaide, medicine for Jean, and lifesaving medical training for Fitrotful are only possible because of you.
Thank you for helping us provide hope to everyone, one person at a time.
