Vision Hope International e.V.
Empowered people transform the world. This principle is the grounding belief of Vision Hope, a Germany-based charity (NGO) whose work reaches the world’s most vulnerable people and builds sustainable communities in war-torn regions.
Vision Hope’s work is focused in Yemen, Jordan, and Germany, with plans to begin projects in Palestine and Lebanon. Recent and ongoing projects transform communities through developing food security, enhancing maternal and child health, promoting support for orphans, providing emergency cholera response, building kindergartens, teaching job skills through cash-for-work programs, and implementing water supply development.
In keeping with the goal of creating sustainable development, the projects are run mostly by local individuals who are already members of the community being transformed.
Vision Hope strives to link relief and recovery with development in order to promote long-term, sustainable peace efforts.
It believes that community-oriented interventions can transform the world into one in which war no longer destroys communities and individuals.
To achieve its goals, Vision Hope coordinates with many donors and organizations, including the World Food Program (WFP), the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA), EuropeAid, the European Union, and Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.

Your help is important
Though Vision Hope receives funding from major institutions, timely emergency response efforts are stymied by grant approval and disbursement processes; these delays result in loss of life and even deeper crises. When a deadly disease outbreak becomes an epidemic, funds are needed immediately in order to save lives. In addition to donations from major organization, Vision Hope relies on private donations to rapidly respond to emergency needs that demand immediate action.
Why we do it
Vision Hope gave me a way to use my writing skills while still making a difference. Sharing Vision Hope's message and success stories has been very inspiring, and I feel privileged to be a part of the team!

Working with VHI is interesting, the most important thing which I learned is the navigation through the details of my assigned project.
