Health & Hope is the working name of Health & Hope UK Limited (Charity No. 1151105) and Health and Hope Myanmar (NGO Registration 0337).
We work in western Myanmar, envisioning and empowering remote rural communities to become thriving through self-development.
Our mission is to bring primary healthcare, education, hope and development to the poorest people in and around Chin State, Myanmar (Burma) through community engagement and empowerment.
Our vision is to see villages that are thriving and self-developed.
We are committed to the empowerment and transformation of individuals and communities. We aim to empower local villagers to find innovative solutions to the problems they face. We believe in the importance of holistic wellbeing in transformation, considering the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the people we serve.
We are committed to developing long term relationships and the affirmation of equal individual value. We work alongside the leadership of local villages to address their needs, encouraging their active participation in their own development. We strive to ensure there is equality and accessibility to the services and activities we offer to all people regardless of religious faith, gender, ethnicity, tribal grouping or social status.
We are a learning organisation, accountable to the people we serve and committed to the transformation of communities we walk alongside. We take consultation with local villagers seriously and develop our services in response to their ongoing feedback and prevailing local needs.
Our work focuses on increasing community cohesion and hope and is centred around three programmes to inspire, engage and empower people to take action to contribute to positive change in their local communities.
We are a community-based and community-led organisation responding to local local villagers needs. Our work focuses on addressing development needs in the three key areas of health, education and food security.
Health and Hope are delighted to enjoy the support of HRH The Prince of Wales as our patron.
His Royal Highness has met personally with Dr Sasa on a number of occasions and has encouraged others to partner with our work in Chin State.
We are honoured and grateful to HRH The Prince of Wales for making time available to support our work and for the encouragement that this brings in the communities whom we serve.
