Who We Are

Hawaii International HOPE Foundation (HIHF) is a small group of people from around the world who believe that there is more that can be done for disadvantaged groups than simply feeling sorry for them. HOPE stands for “Home of Opportunity, Peace, and Education. We began our work in 2001 and became a 501(c)3 organization shortly thereafter. All HIHF funds go directly to our projects.  We do not accept donations from governments, large corporations, or religious organizations. 

Our mission is to support locally-driven community development efforts in Southeast Asia. We believe that on-the-ground organizations have the knowledge necessary to create positive change in the communities they live and work in, and that building relationships with these organizations is a key component to holistic, sustainable development.
