The Hope Project

The Hope Project was established in 2010 to provide advocacy, support and encouragement for refugees and displaced people from Myanmar on both sides of the Thai/Burma border.

Our personnel, comprising a local team on the border and co-workers from Australia, visit the area regularly. We raise funds for projects which include the provision of emergency medical aid and the support of schools and medical clinics inside Myanmar. Our team consults with local communities in identifying these needs and in the administration of accountable procedures in meeting them.

In 2016 The Hope Project became an independent charity and a Public Benevolent Institution in Australia and donations to The Hope Project are tax deductible.

Together we work, as a community organisation of volunteers, to share Hope with those who have experienced conflict, oppression, poverty and disadvantage, and to share support with people regardless of religion, age or gender. We support local people supporting local people to build community and small sustainable projects in response to needs in local communities.
