HOPE worldwide Kenya (HWWK) was registered in 1999, although prior to this, a team of Christians from Nairobi Christian Church, a member of the International Churches of Christ, would reach out to and serve the needy through benevolent activities.
These voluntary activities attracted more people to participate and before long the vision translated to an established institution that would carry out the activities in a legal, coordinated and professional manner.
Initially HWWK received financial assistance from Rotarians for Fighting AIDS and Rotary Club of Nairobi East to help vulnerable children in Mukuru with provision of basic education and appropriate nutrition. Rotary Club of Nairobi East supported HWWK to build a Hall in Mukuru Kwa Ruben to serve the community.
HWWK programs were officially launched on 23 February 2003 in Mukuru Informal Settlement by the then U.S. Ambassador Mr. Johnny Carson. Thus began our work with HIV prevention.
HWWK has grown and provided support to thousands of vulnerable youth, orphans and vulnerable children (OVC), women, and key and priority populations in different parts of the country. These beneficiaries have been reached through various programs including HIV prevention, care and support/treatment, education subsidies, healthcare, nutrition, psychosocial support, shelter, vocational training, entrepreneurship training, support to access micro-finance, initiation of businesses, and linkage to the job market. HWWK has also complimented the Ministry of Health through mobilization of blood donors so as to meet the deficit of blood in the Blood Banks in hospitals in Kenya.
