The mission of HELP International is to empower people to fight global poverty through sustainable, life-changing development programs.
HELP Is dedicated to making a lasting impact through poverty alleviation across the globe. HELP International coordinates groups of volunteer participants to facilitate change through sustainable development projects. In doing so, volunteer participants in turn receive incredible hands-on experience, often for the first time, changing their lives forever, creating life-long change-makers for the future. Volunteer participants assess needs, create projects and evaluate effectiveness in the core competencies of public health, community education and entrepreneurship/business. HELP was established in 1999 with a program in Honduras, as of 2012 HELP operates 10 teams in 8 countries around the world.
