Organization Description: 

Hope out of Despair Initiative is a community based organization based in Nairobi, Kenya.

Mission Statement: 

Our mission is to support the work of local community development organizations in Kenya through the placement of international volunteers. We put volunteers in direct touch with local community to share skills, promote international understanding and actions, and change lives to make our country Kenya a better place for all. We appreciate the diverse talent and skills each international volunteer is endowed with and we want those who can offer such service as volunteer to come to Kenya and make a difference in the lives of under privileged.
