Hope in Action remains when others have left the crisis ground. We build long-term and want to participate and see a new society built up after the war and the conflicts in Congo.
Hope in Action / Sverige is a Swedish organization (non-profit association) with a well-established and competent partner organization in Africa, Hope in Action / DR Congo. The association is based on Christian values.
We are registered locally in the countries where we work; and each unit is independent with its own board. Through this model, we can achieve the simplicity we strive for, where the path between decision and action is as short as possible.
Hope in Action encourages and strengthens its partners through long-term commitment. We offer solid solutions based on in-depth knowledge, to individuals, businesses, organizations and entire communities. Through business partnerships, we ensure that the wheels for development are kept rolling. Building business knowledge and educating economic and social networks are key elements, to lay the foundation for poor and marginalized groups to build a better future. We stay after others left the crisis scene.
Projects are prepared by staff who know the conditions and needs. They include the national aspects when applying, this knowledge is often crucial if a project succeed or not. Hope In Action is committed to ensuring that all assistance efforts are well-grounded among those who are to receive help. Figuratively speaking, the ideas must be born of them who need themselves. This creates the closeness between donors and recipients that we strive for. Each unit of Hope In Action can search for funds locally.
We also hope to break the myth that all funds for aid come from the “rich world”. Among Africans, there is also a great desire to help both financially and practically. The projects are reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and are compiled by an authorized auditor. This is of great importance to everyone. Coordination of projects takes place in Sweden.
