"Somewhere on this planet, someone has a solution to each of the world's problems. It might be one of us. With your help, we can build a more hopeful world." —Hope Beyond Worldwide
Hope Beyond Worldwide began with the intention of placing volunteers and aid in grassroots communities by initiating projects that alleviate some of the problems currently facing the local people. Around the world, there are over 300 million people, in multitude of countries, without access to basic needs such as, running water, primary education, health services, and training for employment.
The main focus of Hope Beyond's programs is to provide volunteers with a culturally enriched experience, while they work with the local people to overcome problems facing the community.
Hope Beyond offers programs in three primary locations:
Education Program: Teach primary academic subjects to young children, as well as organize sports and art activities.
Health care Program: Work with community members on establishing more legitimate health care services, and spread the importance of health care awareness throughout the community.
Child Care Program: Work in care placement programs with orphaned and neglected children who needs care and daily support.
Nature & Conservation Program: Work with Hope Beyond and its partners serve in vital areas where plant and animal species need protection.

Mentor & Guide Program: Work in a uniquely designed citizenship, located in the Himalayan Mountains, aimed at reducing human trafficking, drug addiction, and child labour. The work focuses on empowering children with the knowledge, skills and values necessary to become a productive member of society.

Orphanage Support Program: Work with orphans and street children in the district of Nakuru. Education is of primary concern in the community, therefore, the most important aspect of a Volunteers job will be teaching the children.
Nutrition & Agriculture Program: Work with one of Hope Beyond's partners in a garden that acts as a food distribution base to HIV/AIDS patients. The garden currently produces vegetables such as kale, tomatoes, spinach, maize, and local Kenyan vegetables.
Medical & Health Program: Work with the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation in local hospitals, clinics, dispensaries, and health care centers.
Environmental Conservation: Work with The Director of the Environment in the Nakuru District to promote environmental awareness in the local community.

Hope Beyond offers opportunities with customized programs all year round. Volunteers choose when and how long they would like to stay in a country. In addition, Hope Beyond personalizes each program to suit each volunteers skills and preferences.
For individuals, costs range from $400, for a 2 week program, to $1,000, for a 2 month program. (Read more for couples, group, and long term program costs.)
