Hope Initiative (HI) seeks to develop vibrant and prosperous Vietnamese communities in Vietnam and abroad through poverty reduction, child development, and community enrichment programs.
The Charity incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in the summer of 2000. Based in Houston, Texas, the Charity operates several fundraising enterprises designed to raise donations for orphanages in Vietnam as well as community service activities designed to assist the local Vietnamese communities in Houston.
The Charity's long term strategy includes expanding Hope Initiative’s Vietnam programs beyond the Charity's current network of orphanages, and developing a more robust community service program to incorporate other major areas with a high number of Vietnamese American residents. In the end, Hope Initiative seeks to be the chosen Vietnam focused charity for leading foundations, institutional and individual donors and other financial sponsors.
