HOPE’87 is an Austrian non-profit organization that cooperates closely with the Austrian Federal Chancellery and the Austrian Federal Ministry for European and Foreign Affairs in the implementation of youth employment and youth training projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe. In 2023, HOPE’87 celebrates its 35th anniversary.
A special focus is on humanitarian projects in “Disaster and Post-Disaster Areas”. Existentially necessary goods as well as medicines and medical care are provided, always combined with more far-reaching measures for the rapid restoration of local infrastructure. Humanitarian aid projects are currently being implemented in Burkina Faso, Bangladesh, Pakistan and, with the support of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), in the Republic of Moldova for Ukrainian refugees.
In 10 countries worldwide, HOPE’87 is represented by local “Country Representatives”. As national experts, they are responsible for the identification, supervision and evaluation of projects and support the respective project partners with the necessary know-how. Furthermore, it is their task to establish close working relationships with national governments and authorities, NGOs and INGOs and representatives of international organizations.
