Walk for Hope, Walk for a Future, Walk for Life.
A simple step can change a life
For the first time, World Hope International headquarters will join World Hope Australia and Walk 4 Hope. Join us from April 17th – 30th. When we Walk 4 Hope, we walk to provide access to opportunity as well as reaffirming faith in the dignity and worth of every human person.
We believe that sometimes, empowerment looks like enabling those living with disabilities to develop fine motor skills so they can sit up, stand, walk, run, hold a pencil, write, command their place in society, and not be left behind. Funds raised by the Walk 4 Hope go directly into The Hope Fund, which supports children, their families, and vulnerable communities around the world when and where it matters.
Fundraise Where You Are
From April 17th – 30th participate online and in your neighborhood.

Why Health Care
How health care is transforming communities
We believe that health care is the key to transforming communities and reducing poverty, suffering, and injustice worldwide.
Sierra Leone has some of the worlds’ most vulnerable children due to the high number of affected children by mental and physical disabilities. A place with such a widespread cultural misunderstanding of disability often sees affected children rejected, abandoned, and as a curse on their families. Not only are these children subjected to such misunderstandings, but they are also affected by the extensive poverty, illiteracy, and previous generations’ traditional beliefs. This poverty leads to a general deficit in access to good health care, contributing to the already high rates of physical and mental disabilities in those children.
But there is hope. Together, we can start to create a better life for children. You can help make a huge difference within those communities and individual lives. The Walk4Hope raises funds to not just deliver wheelchairs to kids who desperately need them, but will also contribute to resources that will enable children living with a disability and others around the world to gain access to education, health, and additional essential services. It is for hope, a future, and giving life back to children and their families. Your gift to The Hope Fund helps us make a difference when and where it matters.
